The Winter Market and Craft Sale is an activity of the partnership between Project GROWS, a nonprofit community farm with the mission of improving the overall health among children and youth in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County by connecting children and youth to the food they eat, and the North Augusta Farmers’ Market (NAFM) in Verona, a weekday market that has been around for ten years. The NAFM is held each Wednesday April through October from noon-5pm at the Augusta County Government Center. In 2014, the market-teaching farm partnership experienced one of the most profitable market seasons in NAFM history by emphasizing an expanding variety of producers and conducting targeted community outreach to make more local residents aware of the market.
