Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  Volunteer Oportunity for co-op

The Master Gardeners have extended the invitation for us to have a booth at the county fair if we want to, and can find anyone to set up out there. It would be a good volunteer project for someone who doesn’t want to /or is unable to work a market, but would still like to ba an active member of the co-op.
Drop an e-mail or give me a call if you would be interested in participating.

Thanks for your time and have a great day.

Market News

I don’t have any new news to report this week, and since so many of you are getting ready for the first Monday of the school year tomorrow, I’ll let you get right to ordering without delay. One small note: I’ll be away from market this week, on my way to Missouri where I grew up to watch the total solar eclipse. The market will be in the hands of our wonderful volunteers, but if something comes up they can’t handle for you, just shoot me an email or catch me next week.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
