To Market, To Market


It’s easier than ever now to get farm-to-table produce and other natural goods in Columbia County thanks to Augusta Locally Grown.

The sustainable food source organization recently opened a new market pickup site at the Harlem Civic Center, 374 North Louisville Street (the Harlem Arts Council location).

Customers can place their orders online each week Friday through Sunday, and the site is open for pickup every Tuesday from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Other pickup sites are located in Evans, Grovetown and downtown Augusta.

Products include locally grown produce and meat, artisan cheeses, breads, dairy products, plants, beauty products and other natural goods.

Rebecca van Loenen, Augusta Locally Grown executive director, says the new location was opened after community members requested a pickup site in the Harlem area. “They wanted access to produce that is locally grown, and we have had so much support from the community,” she says.
