Attention Restaurant Alma fans!

Exciting news! The Northeast Farmers Market was selected to be the recipient of their AUGUST donation program!

In January 2014 they began a monthly initiative to support local community partners and organizations working towards eliminating hunger, increasing food awareness and promoting sustainable agriculture by donating from each tasting menu purchase. Their goal is to increase awareness of the missions, work and activities of these important organizations.

It’s a great way to help the community and eat good food all while supporting your neighborhood farmers market! Stop by in August for a bite and know your purchase is going towards a good cause.
