In the interest of a healthy lifestyle, we try to maintain a balanced lifestyle and eat well. Where can south metro Atlanta area residents find the freshest fruits and vegetables? The Georgia State Farmer's Market, located in the city of  Forest Park, Clayton County, gets my vote. Here you can find row upon row of farm fresh produce. In the hustle and bustle of our busy 21st century lives, it's important to remember to eat right. And that can be a challenge, when what's handy (as in readily available at the local supermarket) is so often over-processed and lacking in the proper nutrients...and in some cases even full of harmful additions like pesticides, hormones and antibiotics. It also helps to have friends who garden or raise poultry. This is a bowl full of beautiful fresh-laid, orga...
