The Wesleyan Market is a monthly shopping event where local vendors and sellers can showcase their products to the public held on the campus of Wesleyan College in Macon. The market has been operating on a monthly basis ever since August of 2008, and they have been a local staple ever since their inception.

Hannah Doan, a representative for the Wesleyan Market, said that they have been hosting it on their front-campus ever since.

The idea of the market came from a trip our Trustees and students took called SLI (Student Leadership Institute),” Doan said. “They visited Portland… and noticed all the local markets in the area. One of our staff members at the time thought up a plan to create a farmers market on Wesleyan’s campus, and hence the start of the Wesleyan Market.”

A large number of vendors attend the market each month as a way to reach the public. Some of the vendors that attended January’s market included Bone Creek Farms, John’s Cakes, Bon Bon Custom Cakes, Cookies, and Sweet Styling, Khalilah’s Kitchen and Breedlove Farm.

“We have our market on the second Saturday of each month, year-round, from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. We work with local vendors (within a 50-mile radius of Macon, Ga.) that have produce, local meats, handmade items and consumable food products,” Doan said.

Everyone in Macon is welcome, not just Wesleyan and Mercer students. If you are trying to get more involved in the community, the Wesleyan Market is a good place to start.
