ACWORTH, N.H. – This August, the Acworth Village Store will join over 70 partners throughout the state to highlight New Hampshire Eat Local Month – a month-long celebration of local food, New Hampshire farmers, and food producers. Increased interest in local food benefits us all by positively affecting the health of the economy, communities, and environment.
“New Hampshire residents and visitors alike are showing unprecedented interest in local food, and this month-long celebration offers a great opportunity to feature New Hampshire grown foods and farms,” said Gail McWilliam Jellie from the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food.
As part of the New Hampshire Eat Local Month festivities, the Acworth Village Store, located at 1068 Route 123A, South Acworth, will be presenting several events:
- Our very popular Saturday Night Pizza Night, which is every Saturday night from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Enjoy freshly made pizza, with some locally grown toppings, from our outdoor clay oven and listen to live local music.
- On Aug. 10, as part of our Pizza Night, we will also be hosting an ice cream social, featuring an ice cream topping bar. Kids and adult portions will be available.
- Our annual Harvest Dinner Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. Our annual gala event features a multi-course meal, which showcases deliciously prepared locally harvested foods. Limited seating. Tickets can be purchased at the Village Store at the end of July.
The celebration also includes a virtual scavenger hunt, buy local campaign, story sharing from farmers and businesses, and events hosted by New Hampshire Eat Local Month partners.
The organizers of these events said, “We are interested in letting everyone know about these events taking place at the Acworth Village Store. The Acworth Community Project is the body that runs the Acworth Village Store, which is a community-owned, nonprofit business. It’s a great community gathering place, and we love to see new faces!”
