1 The Augusta Farmers' Market is a unique shopping experience for residents who enjoy fresh produce and delicious homemade items.
The market operates from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evenings, and from 7 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays, and is located in the parking lot at the Augusta Senior Center, 640 Osage.
There is a nice variety of fresh squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, new potatoes, onions, and peppers. And as the season progresses, there will be even more produce.
Delicious homemade bread, jellies and preserves are offered, as well.
It's a great way to support our local growers and to discover a bounty of fresh, locally grown produce.
