The Oakwood Cafe and Gathered Goods are pleased to announce a partnership with the Georgia Department of Agriculture and its Georgia Grown Program, Community Health Works, and Spectra, managers of the Macon Centreplex. We are creating a regional hub to distribute fresh Georgia Grown produce to families by selling $20 produce boxes on November 5, 2020 at the Macon Coliseum located at 200 Coliseum Drive, Macon GA, 31217 starting at 8:00AM until 3:00PM [or until boxes sell out].
Georgia Grown To Go Produce boxes can be purchased individually in person on Thursday, November 5 starting at 8:00AM. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefit dollars can be used at this farmers market, in thanks to CHW. For those interested in purchasing in advance, use this link. Sales will cut off at 10:00PM Wednesday, November 4.

How does it work? Simply drive to the parking booths of the Macon Coliseum entrance, where you can purchase your box/boxes. You will then follow the cones and direction of parking staff to the southside of the venue, where your produce box will be loaded by volunteers into your vehicle. You can then continue to exit back through the parking booth terminals towards Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.
