  • HEALTH SCREENINGS – Meet volunteers students from the Medical College of Georgia.
  • WINTER GARDENING ADVICE – Bring your questions to Master Gardener Phil Williams of Harrisburg
  • FREE GRILLED VEGGIE SLIDERS – grilled to perfection by Henry of GROW Harrisburg using seasonal veggies 
  • LANTANAS WITH ANNA – take home free lantanas (we’ve got hundreds!) and make a donation to gardening education

On Closing Day of the market, October 25:

  • KIDS ACTIVITIES WITH THE JUNIOR LEAGUE OF AUGUSTA – we’ll celebrate closing day with loads of activities for the kids!
