After many years of volunteering for the Alpharetta Business Association and working as the Farmers Market manager, Carol Anderson-Wood has retired. When the new market season opens on Saturday, April 4, there will be a new manager – yet to be named.
Carol was instrumental in helping the original Downtown Alpharetta Farmers Market flourish. She worked closely with the Market’s founders Larry and Margo Attig to literally “grow” the Market from a handful of vendors to now more than 100. Carol was also one of the volunteers responsible for the first State of the City Mayor’s Address that took place in the parking lot of the old City Hall building. And, she has become a familiar face organizing and promoting the popular Brew Moon Fests held every spring and fall.
Darren Carter, 2020 President of the Alpharetta Business Association, thanked Carol for her long-time dedication to the organization. “Carol’s commitment to the ABA and our events has been remarkable. Her time, talent, and years of hard work are greatly appreciated. She will be missed. We wish her all the best in her retirement!”
