Welcome to the Bowdon Farmers Swap & Market
Located in Bowdon, GA
Our Market has been GREAT! And we are so excited
for March 2023! We are moving the market to Bowdon to a larger venue/area
so we can accomodate more vendors and parking.
Y'all come on & bring your extra farm stock to sell or visit our great vendors!
Bowdon Farmers Swap & Market is serving the Haralson, Heard, Carroll & Cleburne County areas in GA & AL...
Some words & history about us.
Here in the rural & most western part of NW Georgia, right on the Alabama line,tucked away on the outskirts of West Georgia...we saw a need...a need for getting back to basics and preserve a way of life that has been forgotten. We want to offer good healthy fresh food, things like vegetables, meats, breads, preserves, fresh eggs, and some good old fashioned farm trading & bartering with great buys on local hand made items as well. We don't bring in commercial vendors, only handmade allowed. We will offer a poultry & animal swap as well during the market. We want to transport you back to a time of getting your foods fresh and your goods at good pricing or trading.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Joe Addison of Lazy River Kayak rentals for the use of his land starting this adventure. Without his help, the use of his land and belief in the market none of this would have been possible! Thank you!
We hope to offer everyone the best of what our area has to offer! If you or know someone that would like to become a vendor please see the section below for more information. See our location area and service area below -

The form (currently being revamped) is used for the Bowon Farmers Swap & Market. We will have farmers first & foremost!
Hours for Saturday Farmers Market and Swap are 10am-2ishPM.
We will have a chicken/poultry swaps and goats, equine, small animals and possibly bovine for trade and or excess sales. We will also have a percentage of traditional flea marketers w very few if any commercial sellers unless their items are handmade. We are trying to keep this to old timey traditions of buying, selling & trading.
All applications will be considered. Regular or food vendors must fill out our form. We will notify you via email of your placement and acceptance upon payment. If you do not see an email from us please call at the number in the contact info below. For the Farmer Swap & Market payments are made on market day at this time. In case of weather related issues (closure due to severe weather) we will announce this on our FB page.
Spots are 1st come 1st serve. We will operate through the year (1st & 3rd Saturday's) with some holidays excluded if necessary. Vendors are responsible for their own tents, tables, garbage, etc...we only provide a 12x12 area. During the winter month's we hope to have a fire
going if excessively cold.
We are asking if you can come to market (and you are a regular vendor) that you please plan to be there on the Saturday's you choose and stay until market is finished. The success of the market is dependent on
the vendors! If the vendors do not show up the people will stop coming. We need regular vendors and animal vendors to come when they say they are coming. We have a great day at the market - you will be pleased with the turn out.
When choosing Saturday dates - If you would like to be at our weekly Saturday Market Farm Swap events it's 10.00 for farmer/rancher/flea vendors & 7.00 for animal swap vendors for each Saturday you attend. These monies go toward vendor area maintenance of the grounds. We are not offering electricity at this time.

We have some of the best egg laying chickens for sale around! These gals are from Amish farms, 14-16 mos old and laying!
The population leaving the chicken houses are tested (10% of the population) for the leading bird illness.
They have also been innoculated as pullets.
These are some of the best chickens we have owned personally &
we have 3 year olds on our farm that are still healthy & laying eggs!
We update our fb pages regularly at Bowdon Farmers Swap & Market and on Flaca Acres Farm. Directions

We don't normally wash all our
eggs but with all the mud lately
we haven't had much of a choice -
And if we sell them to the public
for consumption we are regulated
by GA to wash them all.
