    I really need to know the name of the stand that had the fruit-filled homemade tarts at the fest today. I brought one home and just ate it and it was not good. It was INCREDIBLE!!! I really want more! Can someone let me know how I can buy them. I would eat these everyday if I could afford to. Seriously. :-)


    • Erika M Montoya says

      I think is “Annie’s Baking”… if it, you can find her in Marietta’s Farmers Market…

    Hi, my name is Nick and with my brother Steven started King of Pops a local Atlanta company making handcrafted all-natural popsicles. I’m not sure whether you have any other vendors for the Whole Hog Happenin but we would love to be a part of it. We have gotten quite a following in the Atlanta area over the last couple of years as well as national press and accolades. We try to be at all of the major festivals and events in Atlanta and I think that we would be a great fit at your festival and keep everybody happy and cooled off with our delicious pops. We have been at quite a few events in Marietta to great success, you can check us out at kingofpops.net or facebook.com/kingofpops.

    Thanks for your consideration

    I’ll be sending my vendor form and check in the mail tomorrow. Is there someone that’s suppose to approve me first. I’ll be representing Camp Bow Wow Woodstock which is a Premier Doggy Daycare, Boarding, Training, In-home pet care and grooming. We’ll be opening in Woodstock off of Hwy 92 on Aug 30th. Thanks!
