Enjoy Local Shopping
Our two counties are fortunate to have a wealth of shopping opportunities. We encourage shoppers to “buy local”. Local companies spend money at other nearby companies in addition to paying their staff. This means that by supporting your local economy, you strengthen public infrastructure, support the development of your friends and neighbors, and make a socially and economically beneficial investment in your community.
There are many places to buy locally, including farmers markets, open-air malls, independently owned stores, and chic boutiques.
Visiting farmer’s markets and other similar markets is one of the finest ways to support local businesses first.
Peachtree City Market
The Peachtree City Market is a favorite among locals. It offers fresh produce straight from the farm, as well as gifts and music in the background. Fresh, in-season, locally grown fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, handcrafted breads, goat cheese, coffees, teas, jams, honey, pottery, flowers, soaps, and more are on exhibit from more than 50 vendors, including food trucks. Every Wednesday and Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm during the regular market season and from 10 am to 1 pm during the winter, the market is held in the parking lot of Aberdeen Shopping Village.
Main Street Newnan Market Day
Every month, there are new sellers and one-of-a-kind things at The Market Day’s approximately 50 distinctive booths. Fresh produce, jams and jellies, honey, leather goods, salsa, pottery, artwork, children’s apparel, hand-woven baskets, handcrafted furniture, fiber art, floral design, and more are among the market’s best-sellers. Market Day is held in downtown Newnan on the first Saturday of every month, from April through December, from 10 am to 2 pm, and is sponsored by Main Street Newnan.
Coweta County Farmer’s Market
The second weekend in June marks the opening of this seasonal market, which concludes in the middle of October. The Coweta County Farmer’s Market offers a variety of locally produced goods, including fruits, vegetables, honey, fresh cut flowers, and more. Through the summer, it is available every week at two separate local locations: on Wednesdays in the downtown area near the courthouse square and on Saturdays at the Asa M. Powell Sr. Expo.
The Night Market, which is annually at Drake Field in Peachtree City, includes music, entertainment, food, and artists. In addition to regular food vendors, the festival has 6-8 food trucks. Visitors have a variety of options, including everything from barbecue to Tex Mex. Additionally offered are wine, mixed drinks, and craft beer. The entire night is slated for musical entertainment. From March through December, the second Saturday night of each month at 5pm is when the Night Market is held. Peachtree City and the Peachtree City Convention & Visitors Bureau are the sponsors of Night Market.

SERVING LOCALLY SINCE 1965
Smith & Davis Clothing was founded in 1965 by Fred Smith and Ronald Davis. The store served the mostly rural communities of Fayette and Coweta Counties with work clothes, shoes, and dress apparel. In 1973, Mr. Davis acquired Fred Smith’s share of the company and kept running the store. Today, Mr. Davis’ children, Tony, George, and Beth all take part in the successful running of the business.
Smith & Davis has experienced changes in the times, trends, and even their location in the 58 years since it first opened. The initial relocation to a bigger space took place in 1979, and the current 20,000 square foot structure was constructed in 1988. The dedication to offering top-notch customer service and high-quality products is the one thing that hasn’t changed.
In recent years, the store has welcomed new faces into the buying, management, and marketing portions of the business. Like Tony always says, “I know my limitations”. Ted Patterson and Samuel Perez now handle the majority of the buying. Samuel is also in charge of the marketing department. They work together to manage the store.
Nearby Peachtree City is known for its abundance of runners and tri-athletes, and Smith & Davis has become a Running Specialist and is a trusted shoe source for runners in the area. Smith & Davis was also awarded the Top 25 Gold Medal Service award winners in ‘22 for the United States and #2 in Georgia by Footwear Insight Magazine.
Non-commissioned Run Specialists at Smith & Davis take the time to provide you with both what you want and what you need. The first step in the procedure is a foot scan using their Gait Analysis machine, which identifies the kind of arch and degree of pronation present in each runner. Everything here is intended to help you fit better into running, casual, work, and leisure footwear. This service has reached the ears (and feet) of doctors and physical therapists around the area.
But shoes aren’t the only thing they are known for – their clothing selection covers a wide range of choices. From heavy duty work wear to athletic, casual and dress clothing, they have it all.
The ladies’ side of the facility has developed into a more boutique-like presence, stocking the most in-demand top brands in outdoor wear along with the newest seasonal trends & accessories.
Do yourself a favor and visit Smith & Davis if you haven’t already. You’ll be surprised at volume and variety of clothing, shoes, accessories, and more hidden in this gem of a store, just outside of Peachtree City.
