Tucked alongside Downtown’s Riverwalk, is where you will find a crowd favorite - The Augusta Market. The Augusta Market operates March through November every Saturday morning, and it’s known as the hotspot for local vendors, street performers with quirky surprises and art around every corner. This market offers a broad selection of locally produced and grown goods, crafts, food trucks, and other products and services by small-businesses in the area. From adoption kennels to live music, there is something for everyone.
Meet John Weigle:
John, an Augusta native for over forty years, designs and makes charcuterie boards and wood turned pens and has been in the wood work business since 2018. In March, he set up a booth at the Augusta Market and his business began to grow. Since then, he has been a vendor every Saturday.
“I really enjoy being a vendor at the Saturday Market. The coordinators and neighboring vendors are great and always willing to help if I need it. I’ve met many people, and it has broadened and expanded my customer base,” John said.
You can find John’s booth on the right-hand side near the river, right before you reach the bridge. If you can’t make it on a Saturday, check out Art on Broad. You will find John’s boards and other great gifts there.
