Market News

Right on cue, we have signs that summer is winding down. The equinox comes on Wednesday, the nights will now be longer than the days, and the plants pick up on that really quick. Take the arugula and mizuna, for example — there are a three different listings this week for those zesty greens. They might have some heat of their own, but they’re not fond of summer at all. Right on their tail we’ll see bountiful spinach, cabbages, broccoli again, and other cool season crops. The summer items will hold on as long as they can — we’ve still got over a month until frost will put an end to those (except for what our growers have planted in high tunnels and greenhouses). So, for the next few weeks we’ll get to enjoy the best of both seasons! It’s exciting times in the kitchen, for sure.

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 at our market’s home on Tallassee Road!

We are still getting new customers every week (and we love seeing new faces!) so for all of you you can find a detailed run-down of how Thursdays go on our website here: https://athens.locallygrown.net/faq#7

Other Area Farmers Markets

If ALG doesn’t have everything you need, please support our growers at the other markets that are now back up and running, or at their own locations. The Comerian takes online orders for Saturday pickup at the bakery here: https://www.thecomerian.com/online-ordering. The Athens Farmers Market is holding their Saturday market once again in Bishop Park and Wednesdays at Creature Comforts.They’re still operating under pandemic rules, so you’ll want to read up on all the changes on their website, http://athensfarmersmarket.net. The West Broad Farmers Market is back, holding a drive through market just like us (and using my software too, so it’ll be nice and familiar). You can join them at https://wbfm.locallygrown.net. The Saturday market in Comer has also returned. They’re small, but sometimes an early Saturday drive to Comer is just what the soul needs. And of course Collective Harvest is going strong over at https://www.collectiveharvestathens.com.

All of these other markets are separate from ALG (including the Athens Farmers Market) but many growers sell at multiple markets. Please support your local farmers and food producers, where ever you’re able to do so!

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

Fall, at least the calendar version, arrives later this week. I am willing to bet that I’m not the only person who will welcome cooler temperatures! I look forward to being in the kitchen baking with warm spices. Apple pie, pumpkin bread, and mincemeat pie make the house smell delicious. It’s time to stock up on cinnamon, allspice, and cloves!

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. May you all have a good day, and we’ll see you at the Market this week.

Thanks,

Beverly

NEW GROWERS Periwinkle and Pine Company
Beautiful handmade wreaths, bouquets, and decor using high quality faux florals and greenery.

Singing Bee Honey: I am a third generation beekeeper with 15 beehives in Woodbury, Tennessee. The honey produced is 100% local, raw, unfiltered, and pure. I do everything from managing the hives to harvesting the honey and labeling the jars. I have different jar sizes available and some squeeze bottles. Sizes range from 12oz (gift size) up to quart size (48oz) to appeal to different buyers. My plan is to continue to expand my apiary each year to increase inventory as return and new customers increase. Right now it is all liquid honey, but I plan to add cut comb honey next year.

News from Our Growers:

Quarter Spring Farm:  Quarter Spring Farm is off seeing Willy Nelson and Sturgill Simpson this week.  See y’all next week.

The Bean Man: We have our beans and bean mixes available. All of our products are fresh, non-gmo and tested gluten free with no glyphosates used in growth or harvest.  We always sell our products in the same season they were harvested.

Mama D’s Bakery: Hi everyone! We have everything available this week! We have a Sourdough Sandwich Loaf, Oatmeal Cookies,  Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Strawberry Swirl Bread,  Raspberry Swirl Bread, and Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread, Blueberry Muffins, Crusty French Bread, Organic White Wheat Bread, Mocha Muffins, Chocolate Swiss Roll, Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Blueberry Lemon Yeast Rolls, Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread(with the option of nuts or not), Bagels(plain, cinnamon-raisin, blueberry, and everything), Donuts(cake and yeast), Cream Cheese Danishes, Pies(chocolate fudge, pecan, chocolate chip pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato), Cookies, Granola and Protein Bars, Yeast Breads, Sourdough Breads, and Fruit Scones. Thanks so much to everybody for your business!!

Flying S Farms: Flying S Farms: Available this week variety of winter squash; Acorn, Butternut, Carnival, Delicata, Spaghetti and most popular Long Island Cheese. The Winter type Squash are great ‘keepers’ that can be stored in a dry cool space and enjoy through the winter months.  Both varieties of Okra – Clemson and Star of David, Green and Red Sweet Peppers and Slicing Tomatoes. Many have asked about Catherine – she is doing good; she has almost completed the worst of her surgery process and will have a brief break before the final stages are complete.  She is anxious to get back in the kitchen.
 
Thank you everyone for your assistances helping with the market,  prayers, best wishes, cards, delicious meals during my absence. I believe the worst is over, still few more things that need to be done.

Carole’s Herbs/CS3 Farms: Check out our FB site /CS3Farms for our recently launched culinary herb lessons or email Carter for more information. You can learn about herbs to cook with that are also medicinal and test your knowledge! We will be having an on farm experience Saturday, October 2, so mark your calendars!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: We still have lots of green and growing things! Trouble is, not too many of them are in bloom this time of year, and I feel rather badly about the lack of color. However, with the cooler fall-ish weather (which hopefully may stay around), it is a really good time to plant perennials. September planting gives perennials and shrubs an opportunity to establish a good strong route system before the ground takes on a winter chill. This in turn will allow them to initiate healthy top growth in early spring, followed by plentiful blooms. This week I’ve added several spring bloomers to the market (astilbes and columbines for shade, coreopsis and creeping phlox for sun), joining a few late bloomers with flowers now (begonias, gauras, sedum, rudbeckia, turtlehead). Don’t forget our fresh-cut herbs, or if you prefer to grow your own, our herb plants. Some of the latter are a bit overgrown, but that just gives you more fresh herbs to preserve for winter use.
