THE MARKET IS OPEN AT AUGUSTA LOCALLY GROWN!
SOUPER KIDS CAFE: A TRUE THANKSGIVING FEAST
It comes as no surprise that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday celebration. This year it was made extra special by the pre-Thanksgiving feast of veggie soups we cooked-up with the children of the Lake Olmstead housing community. There are some awesome adults to thank for the success of that event, but my hugs today go out to all those kids who truly put their hearts into that meal.
LOCALLY GROWN GIFT BAZAAR:
Augusta Locally Grown will host a “Locally Grown Gift Bazaar” at our Tuesday pick-locations with a handful of our talented grower/artisans this December. Save these dates for your holiday shopping:
Dec 4, AJCC, 3:45pm-5:45pm
Dec 11, TIRE CITY, 5p-7pm
Dec 18, AJCC, 3:35-5:45p
LOCAL CHRISTMAS TREES:
Starting next week, Augusta Locally Grown will offer locally-grown Christmas trees from Clarks Hill Christmas Tree Farm. Delivery to your home is available! Or, if you’d rather visit their farm to pick-and-cut your own, visit their website at clarkshillchristmastreefarm.com.
Our student interns have agreed to a long evening of pecan cracking & shelling to raise money for the Veggie Truck Initiative. If our first 20 pounds go well, this could turn into a regular fundraiser and service to our customers during pecan season. Thanks to Chris T for inspiring the idea.
WELCOME BACK FLATLAND FARM:
Flat Land Farm is back with eggs! They’ve been growing their flock of grass-pastured hens to meet the needs of the SCAD Farm to Table student meal program. Now, with SCAD on break, they’re back with Augusta Locally Grown.
A-GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK: MACK
A bag of fresh greenbeans has become the most requested game-day snack for this baseball player and his teammates. His mom, Gretchen, a local Type 1 Diabetes educator and fundraiser, probably had a little something to do with this, but we’re awarding the limited-edition tshirt to her son!

SEE Y’ALL AT THE MARKET ON TUESDAY!
