There’s always something fun to do near Sharp Residential communities, especially in Cherokee County. In both Canton and Woodstock, there are several family-friendly summer activities to take advantage of this summer. Here are some of the fun summer events and activities to enjoy near our Cherokee County new home communities.
Farmers markets are the ideal place to buy fresh, local produce. Not only do you support local farmers within your community, but you can enjoy time spent with family, friends, and neighbors. Two popular Cherokee County farmers markets include the Canton Farmers Market and the Woodstock Farm Fresh Market.
Canton Farmers Market
The Canton Farmers Market is open every Saturday through October 27. Head to Cannon Park from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm to buy local produce and homemade treats. The farmers market also features live music, cooking demonstrations, and kids activities.
Woodstock Farmers Market
Now in its 10th year, the Woodstock Farm Fresh Market is open every Saturday through December. Because vendors are required to grow at least 85% of their product, you can rest easy knowing it is locally grown.
Who doesn’t love an evening of listening to live music? Especially during the summer months, this has become a regular occurrence in several communities. One musical event to take advantage of this summer is Canton First Fridays. Every first Friday of the month through October, head to downtown Canton from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. There will be live music, a car show, and a variety of food vendors.
Watching an outdoor movie is the perfect way to spend a night of quality time with your family this summer. In Cherokee County, you can head to either Canton or Woodstock throughout the summer. Both Movies in the Park programs are part of Georgia Movies in the Park. Canton Movies in the Park is held at Browns Park in downtown Canton. Woodstock Movies in the Park takes place at the Northside Hospital-Cherokee Amphitheater. You can bring lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks to both events to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

One of the best places to find fresh herbs, meats, and produce is right in your own backyard. With the arrival of April, we also welcome back local farmers markets. There are several products available for you to purchase at your local farmers market. These include fresh meat and produce, as well as herbs and flowers. Here are a couple farmers markets in Fulton County to check out this spring.
Why Buy Local?
From purchasing produce during its peak season to meeting the people growing the food, there are several reasons to buy local. Buying locally grown and raised food benefits both you and the farmers. You benefit because you get fresh herbs, meats, and produce from people in your community. For instance, produce is typically fresher at a farmers market because it is picked closer to the day of the market. For the farmers, selling locally can also yield higher return because they don’t have to ship the food hundreds of miles away.
Alpharetta Farmers Market
The Alpharetta Farmers Market opens for the season in two weeks on Saturday, April 14. The market is open every Saturday through November from 8:30 am until 1:00 pm. Here you will find more than 25 local vendors. You will enjoy a wide selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats, as well as garden flowers and herbs.

Your homes aesthetic is so much more than the decor you choose to adorn your walls or the furniture that fills each room. The architectural and structural components of your home lay the foundation, and in 2018 these elements are also making a statement. Read on and look out for these trends in our Sharp Residential communities across North Atlanta.
If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, you know the never-ending struggle of not having enough storage space. Luckily, having ample kitchen cabinetry is an emerging trend that we anticipate will stick around for many years to come. Along with having more cabinetry in the kitchen, you can also expect to see more people featuring gray, cream, and wood grain cabinetry as opposed to the traditional white. With a variety of styles and finishes available, you’re sure to find the perfect selection for your new home.
Move aside flat ceilings, and make way for exposed beams, decorative tray ceilings, and beautiful coffered ceilings. From the living room to the dining room, and the study to the bedroom, we are seeing more intricate ceilings being used throughout the home. This beautiful wooden tray ceiling at one of our homes in Northpoint Forest is the perfect example of how a unique twist can change the appeal of the entire room.
As seen in this gorgeous master bathroom in one of our homes at Blue Valley, large tile is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after features for bathrooms. Not only is the larger tile aesthetically pleasing, it is also more functional. With less grout, it is easier to install and maintain.
From exposed brick to stone, concrete, and granite, natural materials have made their way into home interior design, and we don’t expect them to leave anytime soon! Like this gorgeous stone wall in one of the dining rooms of our Northpoint Forest community, natural materials add charm and unique personality to your home that will stand the test of time.
We’re Here to Help
We understand that a lot goes into making design choices for your new home. That’s why we have a team of professionals at our Design Center who can help you through every step of the process to pick out the perfect finishes for every room in your home.
