Throughout the years Coweta Greenhouses has expanded to almost twenty acres which focus on the production of wholesale plants. Originally opening in 1972 the greenhouses are now owned by second-generation Tommy Morgan.
Tommy tells us, “We’ve always been open to the public.” With that being said, the greenhouses recently rebranded the open public space as Morgan’s Market. The lack of retail availability off Exit 41 percolated thoughts in Tommy’s head to start an in-house 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. farmers market. He says, “This is a place where people who already have product can been seen other than on a Saturday.”
Morgan’s Market features locally grown and made products such as jellies, soaps, cheese, veggies, and more. Attracting more local artisans and offering seasonal tours could allow Morgan’s Market to become a certified agritourism destination. Tommy says, “We are going to expand beyond what we have. I’ve been wanting to do this for quite some time, and everything is now falling into place.”
Access to fresh food near Interstate 85’s Exit 41 can sometimes require a rather long drive. Grocery stores are located several miles away in congested traffic areas. Tommy hopes that with the population growth expected in this area of Coweta County, many of the newcomers as well as those who already live in Coweta County will visit to find a unique selection of local goods at Morgan’s Market.
Morgan’s Market is located inside Coweta Greenhouses at 83 Oaklawn Circle in Newnan, Georgia. Learn more about Morgan’s Market at their Facebook page by clicking here.
