Planet Garden…Historic Downtown Train Depot Location for Bluebird Market

Posted in Sustainable Column by planetgarden on January 1, 2010

Because of the hard work of Andy York to renovate Thomaston’s historic train depot into the Ponderosa Steakhouse, our town is fortunate to have a lovely part of local culture in good hands.  The Ponderosa continues to be open on Thurs, Fri., and Saturday nights.
 
Train fans and farmers market fans are invited to get on board with Bluebird Market at the historic downtown train depot this Saturday, January 2nd, 2010 from 8 am until noon for an arts and harvest New Year’s celebration. We will have fun with local artisans, bakers, growers and those who enjoy fresh and local produce at Bluebird Market.
It is such an honor and delight to offer this great downtown business location for the community of farmers market shoppers that come out weekly to buy local and home grown produce. This neighborhood is part of the downtown business district and many people shopped with local growers in the parking lot of United Bank in previous years.
For those of you who have not yet visited Bluebird Market, we invite you to stop by the historic train depot at 218 N. Center Street and meet and greet the vendors as they continue to bring Georgia Made Georgia Grown arts and harvest to us weekly. We opened on June 6, 2009 and have been serving Thomaston continuously every Saturday rain or shine with organic and fresh and local produce.
We have much to celebrate this coming year with a fun spring coming just around the corner. If you are a historic train lover like me and are happy that our train depot has been cared for over the years, I invite you to stop in Cook’s Market location..buy some of their delicious famous sausage, second to none, and tell Mr. York thank you for dedicating his time and talent into a historic part of our local culture.
It’s going to be so much fun and we hope you will start 2010 with Bluebird Market at the very beginning…a very good place to start!
