A new event in Stephens County later this month will highlight local farmers and artisans.
The Currahee Club is hosting its first Farmer and Artisan Day on Saturday, August 24 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the club located at the end of Oak Valley Road in Stephens County.
Currahee Club Community Manager Anne Shurley said they are excited to invite the entire community to this event.
“We are excited about people coming in,” said Shurley. “We are excited about having this market. It is going to be set up on the grand lawn of the (new) Amenities Center.”
There is no charge to attend the event.
Shurley said that it should provide a great opportunity for people to learn more about what it takes to bring food from the farm to the dinner table or make homemade items like soaps, lotions, and more.
Shurley did say that the farmers and artisans from Stephens and surrounding counties will all have items for sale to those who come out.
“Everyone will be able to go, stroll through, and purchase fresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, honey, homemade jams, jellies, preserves, pickles, relishes, gourmet salsas, along with lotions, candles, crochet items (and more),” said Shurley.
Shurley said that the Currahee Club is hoping to turn this into an annual event.
