Throughout the month of August, The Acworth Village Store joins with 50 partners throughout the state to highlight New Hampshire Eat Local Month — a month-long celebration of local food and New Hampshire farmers and producers. NH Eat Local Month also coincides with National Farmers’ Market Week, honoring farmers’ markets all across America.
“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 NH Eat Local Month festivities, The Acworth Village Store (located at 1068 Route 123A, South Acworth, NH) will be presenting these events:
- There is our very popular Saturday Night Pizza Night, which is every Saturday Night from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Enjoy freshly made pizza from our outdoor clay oven and listen to live local music.
- We also will be hosting our annual Harvest Dinner, on August 19th, featuring a flavorful gourmet menu created with locally sourced ingredients.
The Acworth Village Store is open Monday-Saturday from 7am-7pm and Sundays from 8am-7 pm. The phone number there is 603-835-6547. They offer many services including an ATM and a US Post Office.

The Organizing Committee for the Acworth Locavore Festival wants to offer their thanks for all that farmers and food producers do to provide healthy sustenance for the local community.
