Tickets for Augusta Boucherie are on sale now! Visit www.augustaboucherie.com to get your ticket.
The Butchery – or “Boucherie” in French – is an age-old tradition. Friends, neighbors and family members gather to help butcher livestock and preserve meat in the fall, assuring that all parts of the animals are used for sustenance.

A_GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK: RHONDA
For Halloween, Rhonda sent us a photo of herself cooking a “Frankensquash.” She writes: “Cross pollination in a friend’s garden resulted in squash plants that produce pale green fruit with a yellow squash shape and acorn squash ribs. The Frankensquash tastes like a zucchini, so I hope my garden produces more!” Rhonda will receive a limited edition A-GUSTAVORE tshirt for her winning photo.
THANK YOU LESLIE:
Thank you Leslie of Luna Bug Soups for giving me the gift of a stress-free, two-weeks-away-from-the-market. You are a gem.
SEE YOU ALL AT THE MARKET ON TUESDAY!
