Some of the vendors at the Potts Mountain Farmers Market.
Saturday marked the first day for the farmers market off Steve Tate Highway for this year. This is the second year Atlantic Coast Conservancy (ACC), which has 1,300 acres there under permanent conservation status, has organized the market. The market will run every Saturday morning until fall.
The crowd of shoppers Saturday was impressive considering the threat of rain. A good number of vendors were there mainly offering handmade crafts and art with some farm fresh meat, eggs and seafood.

Carpentry instructor Bill Mullis shows off new equipment at the Chattahoochee Tech campus to state rep. Rick Jasperse and school president Ron Newcomb during an open house last week.

As carpentry instructor Bill Mullis, with his 25 years of construction experience, explained holding up a basic tape measure, “this is the most important tool.”

Old Mulehouse owners George and Pano Koulouris want to keep many of the unique features of the building, like the silhouette of a staircase on one wall seen above.
“It’s going to be like a gastropub,” said The Old Mulehouse co-owner George Koulouris as he gave this reporter a brief tour of the prominent Main Street building that’s been vacant for over a decade.
“It’s funny,” he said laughing. “I actually can’t stand the name gastropub - it sounds like you’re going to be sick at the bar - but we’re going to have elevated pub food and Georgia wines and beer. We want to be a place Jasper can really be proud of.”
