Mercier Orchard products are available and include a large variety of apples and delicious fruit pies. Packaged meats include country hams. When visiting the market, look for specialties like hoop cheese, fried peanuts, NiHi Orange drinks, Amish butter, and local eggs. The market also sells birdhouses, locally grown organic plants, garden plants, herbs, shrubs, and flowers.
The owners of the Georgia Mountain Farmer's Market also grow their own corn and pumpkins on farms located in Towns County and Taylor County .
