Georgia Grown Vendors will be at the Tanger Outlet in Savannah
Georgia Grown invites you to attend the Savannah Farmers Market Showcase this Saturday, June 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Pooler, Georgia. The Salt Table, Georgia Grown member, is partnering with the Tanger Outlets to make this event a success. This year’s showcase is the largest to date with 72 booths and celebrity guest chefs.
“We have seen tremendous support from both producers and consumers of Georgia Grown products across the state for our showcase events,” shares Commissioner Black. “As we head into the summer season, the showcase is the perfect opportunity to pick up fresh, locally grown produce along with other items produced in our own state that you cannot find in stores. We would like to encourage everyone to come out and support our local producers.”
Visitors will have an opportunity to purchase a wide range of locally grown items such as seasonal fruits and vegetables, meats, olive oils, honey and plants. Additionally, visitors will be able to taste delicious samples and discover the unique soaps, candles and other products that Georgia Grown members have to offer. With activities for the kids, this free event will be fun for the whole family.
This year’s Georgia Grown Showcase is located at Tanger Outlets, 200 Tanger Outlet Blvd. Pooler, Georgia 31322.
