Farmers, market patrons, volunteers, interns, community partners: here’s to y’all for keeping it real … and really really delicious.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Enormous hugs to everyone who made Closing Days at both the Veggie Truck Farmers Market and the Evans Towne Farmers Market such lovely occasions. Special thanks goes to Chef Charleen Tinley for doing cooking demos at both, and to JandL Farm & Stables for hosting a bake sale that successfully raised $150 for the national “No Kid Hungry” campaign.

This year’s TedxAugusta theme is “Connections.” ALG has been invited to help make the connection between local food, local farmers and local eaters at their pre-event reception this Monday evening, in Augusta, and again at the big TEDx event in late January. We could use a couple extra hands to serve up some tasty tidbits and drinks made from the gorgeous bounty of the season. The volunteer slot is 2:30pm-7pm. Text Kim at 706-288-7895 if you can help.
