Come experience the most feel-good farmers market in Augusta!

The Veggie Park Farmers Market is located in the neighborhood of Harrisburg, adjacent to downtown Augusta, GA. Situated at the Mill Village Trailhead (101 Eve Street, Augusta) behind the Kroc Center, this modest market features some of the most highly regarded farmers in the CSRA.

Open on Tuesdays from 4:30pm-7pm, this market runs April-October.

And yes! We double SNAP/EBT!  

Here’s how:

When you swipe your SNAP card at the market manager booth, we give you $2 in market tokens for every one $1 you spend. So you get double value on some of the freshest local fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, cheese, nuts and honey around town! 

This food stamp doubling program is made possible by matching funds that we raise in partnership with Wholesome Wave Georgia. We have had the true pleasure of working with this highly respected nonprofit since 2012.  

The Veggie Truck Farmers Market is designed to increase social and economic access to our community’s most healthy foods for community members of all income levels. Of course, the market is open to all!

The Veggie Park Farmers Market is run by a cooperative of farmers and nonprofit organizations. They include:
