Dunwoody Farmers Market Reopens on July 11 at Brook Run Park

The Dunwoody Farmers Market opens Saturday, July 11th at Brook Run Park with vendors onsite & live music. The market runs 8:30am – 12pm through October 31st, rain or shine.

To maintain a healthy and safe environment for our vendors and customers we have implemented a few health protections to include a minimum of six feet between vendor booths and no touching of food items prior to purchase.

Instead of touching food items themselves, customers should direct freshly gloved vendors to bag their selections, and vendors will place bags within reach of customers before accepting their cash or cards for payment. In order to separate the handling of cash or cards from the handling of food items, vendors will change gloves to process payments or direct payments to a gloved assistant who does not handle food items.

We encourage everyone who is healthy and feels safe, to visit the Dunwoody Farmers Market in order to buy healthy, local food from our farmers, and small businesses.

We ask that you follow these guidelines:

Masks are encouraged.

Please shop with a purpose and do not linger at the market. This will help reduce the number of customers in the market at any one time.

We are allowing more space between each vendor’s booth. These are not walkways, but distancing measures.

Maintain at least a double arm’s length distance between other shoppers and vendors, especially while you are waiting in line.

Do NOT greet anyone at the market with hugs or handshakes and avoid touching your face.

No hand-to-hand contact will be allowed between vendors and shoppers. Point to the product that you would like to purchase, allow the vendor to bag it and set it down on the table before you pick it up.

Do not hand vendors payments directly. Place cash and credit cards on the table for vendors to pick up. Many of our vendors use Square Card readers. Vendors have turned off the signature requirement so you will not be touching their phones.

Please leave pets at home. We love dogs, but please do not bring them to the market at this time! The CDC recommends that pet owners limit their pet’s interaction with people outside their household. Walk dogs on a leash at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from others and avoid public places where a large number of people gather. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/pets.html

Service animals welcome: Service or assistance animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA or Georgia Law.

Anyone who is feeling unwell in any way should stay home.

Any shopper who is at a higher risk with underlying health conditions, should stay home.

Patience, kindness, and common sense can keep us all safe and healthy!

The 4th of July Parade Is Postponed

Other major July 4th events are closing and our favorite marching bands have cancelled their tours. There is no choice but to postpone the July 4th parade. The committee is meeting to determine what date to hold the parade and how to restart in 2021. Thanks for your support and stay tuned - we're not going anywhere! Comment from the president via the Dunwoody Area Community Forum on Facebook: Hi folks. I’m the horse’s mouth on this one. Parade chairs made the call when PRR postponed and I backed them up. The reality is many of the bands and specialty entries that people enjoy had already cancelled. And will the community revitalize their interest in building their own entries? Don’t know. The parade will go on later this year. First organizing meeting was yesterday and work is underway. When the specifics are complete press releases will go out and all the info will be on the DHA website. I know there’s going to be a range of opinions on this but it comes down to whether

Updated Statement on the Proposed Rezoning of 5308, 5318, and 5328 Roberts Drive

  To:          Dunwoody City Council                Zoning Board of Appeals   Re:          RZ 20-02 Rezoning of 5308, 5318, and 5328 Roberts Drive The Board of Directors met virtually on Thursday, October 22 to discuss our position on the proposed rezoning.   A quorum of the board voted unanimously to oppose the rezoning of these properties from R-100 to R-50.   The DHA has stayed in contact with adjacent homeowners since our original position statement was issued and we felt it necessary to update our position. A rezoning that close, to allow 15 homes to be built, requires several variances to be feasible.   These variances will result in the development imposing on existing neighborhoods and diminishing the owners’ quality of life and risks damage to the current homes themselves. A variance is requested that will increase the total impervious surface of the properties from 40% to 85%.   We believe this change, if enacted will cause environmental damage to nearby neighborh
