Threat of Rain Cancels Alpharetta Farmers Market

The Alpharetta Business Association said the event would return to downtown Alpharetta next week.

Heavy rain in the forecast has caused the cancellation of Saturday's Downtown Alpharetta Farmers Market.

Alpharetta Business Association board member Larry Attig first made the announcement.

"Due to the unfavorable weather predicted for Alpharetta tomorrow we have decided to cancel the Alpharetta Farmers Market for this Saturday," he said.

The National Weather Service said the chance of rain on Saturday is 100 percent. An east wind of 15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph, would add to the problems for vendors and customers. The area will also be under a flood watch from Saturday morning to Sunday evening.

The Saturday morning event is being held on Old Canton Street this season.

Attig said the ABA was "sorry for the inconvenience, but we think it is best for the vendors and customers. We will be back next week."
