ABOUT THE CITY OF VIDALIA HOMES FOR SALE AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
Vidalia is best known for its "sweet" onions. The Vidalia onion was first produced about 1931 when a farmer named Mose Coleman discovered that the onions he produced were sweeter than other onions. Other farmers started producing the same onion, and in the 1940s the Vidalia onion became an item sold to tourists.
Vidalia onion growers have protected their brand, and today all onions labelled Vidalia must be grown in one of thirteen different counties in Georgia or in specific portions of seven other counties. Each spring Vidalia holds a world famous Onion festival.
Residents who live in and around Toombs, Tattnall, and Evans Counties enjoy a quiet rural life.
It’s about more than just living and working in a community. It’s about being part of that community and enjoying your place in it. And when you call Vidalia home, you’ll find that’s what you’ll treasure most.
