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.
This will be a not to be missed event!

NEW INTERN: TABIAS
Help us extend a warm welcome to new intern, Tabias, who will start at the Downtown Market this Tuesday. Tabias was instrumental in helping start the Veggie Truck Initiative, and we’re grateful for his new commitment to Augusta Locally Grown.
A-GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK: MICHEL
Michel, a much-loved customer at Augusta Locally Grown, upped and moved her family to Washington GA this winter to start their own farm. In the winning photo, she and her daughter plant apple trees at “Blooming Buddah Gardens.” Michel wrote: “We are settling in here very nicely … taking our time and always discovering something new about this place that makes our Hearts smile.” Can’t wait to try those apples in a few years, Michel!
See you all at the market on Tuesday.
