You are invited to taste the future of Atlanta's urban food system, while celebrating the rich culture and agricultural traditions of our city at the second annual Taste of Aglanta!

 
 
 

Thanks to a strong coalition of Atlanta food system leaders and advocates, the City of Atlanta’s Urban Agriculture Ordinance was passed in 2014. This ordinance helped lay the groundwork for Atlanta to become a national leader in urban agriculture. In 2015 Mayor Kasim Reed appointed the first Urban Agriculture Director in the country, and announced an ambitious goal: to ensure that healthy food is within a .5 mile of 75% of Atlanta residents by 2020. The Urban Agriculture Director works with community partners to continue to evolve city policies and help leverage the impact urban agriculture can have in creating a more resilient city.

 

Taste of Aglanta on Saturday, July 22nd 2017, will feature eclectic tastings featuring locally grown produce prepared by chefs from the Sweet Auburn Curb Market and restaurants across Atlanta; beer, wine, and signature cocktails made using a variety of local ingredients. 

Proceeds from the evening will benefit urban agriculture in Atlanta, through enhanced and expanded local agriculture production and sustainable food systems, in association with Groundwork Atlanta.

See you at the Market
