Athens Locally Grown:  ALG Market Open for July 22

On Thursdays: Here’s a map.

Market News

We’ve reached the lazy days of summer, where Athens seems to take a collective pause and catch its breath before the students come pouring back in just a couple weeks from now. Seems like a lot of people are using this time to get out of town and recharge, and I’m no exception. I’m taking the week off from market, for the first time since everything changed in March of 2020. I’ve left Thursday in the more than capable hands of our regular team of volunteers so other than a different face when you drive up you shouldn’t notice anything different. I’ll see you again 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 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. 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!

Cumberland County, TN:  CSFM open for ordering


Hello everyone! Hope you had a good weekend. Please check out the items available this week. I will say I tried Granny’s bread and highly recommend it.
Veggies are starting to come in and should be more varieties soon. As for dairy (cow) it will not be offered unless more people are interested as it is a long way to get it. You can contact me by phone or email.
We appreciate you all.
Please remember to bring egg cartons and grocery bags.
Blessings,
Tonya

Fayetteville Farmers' Market:  Online Orders NOW Open


Welcome to online ordering!
Online ordering is now open!

PEACHES and BLACKBERRIES are available!

Check back on Monday and Tuesday as additional vegies may be added on those days. Because of poor weather this past spring, fruit and some vegies are ripening later than usual.

Ordering for all items closes as usual at 6am on Wednesday morning. Pickup is on THURSDAY afternoon from 4:30-6:00 pm.

New customers always welcome—no minimum order required and you don’t have to order every week.

Order at

https://fayettevillearkansas.locallygrown.net/market.

TIPS:

1) When you start shopping, if you see items that have low availability, choose, check out, and pay for those first.
2) Some sellers will add more products on Monday or Tuesday in the ordering period, so be sure to check back.
3) Multiple orders from you will be combined into one order before pickup.

PICKUP TIME:
4:30pm to 6:00 pm on THURSDAY.

PICKUP LOCATION AND PROCESS:
The OUTDOOR parking area at the south end of the new part of the Fayetteville Public Library. Approach on School Street, and turn west into the outdoor parking lot and watch for signs. Put your name in large print in your window—someone will meet you and direct you to a spot and your order will be brought out to you.

Thank you for your continued support of the online market.

The Wednesday Market:  Remember to Order Today


Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 2 and 4 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

As some of our customers may know, I was out of town for several days during the past two weeks. While traveling I didn’t have reliable access to the internet. Thankfully, Sharon Fox came to my rescue to send out last week’s reminder to customers to place their orders. Sharon included the entire market’s product listing with the email reminder, something I don’t do. Although doing so was an “accident”, I think it reminds us all of a couple of important matters. First, it takes a village. Each of the volunteer managers of The Wednesday Market has specific duties that are carried out like clock work each and every week. The system works so well we almost never think about what the others do…..except when someone is absent! I have promised Sharon and Nelda that I’ll put some instructions down in writing for them to follow in the event that I ever leave town for so long. Secondly, I’m somewhat glad that all of our customers received a listing of ALL our products last week. Seeing that list is a reminder that The Wednesday Market offers a wide variety of items which are locally produced. If you are not in the habit of looking through our lengthy product list, it might be fun and interesting to peruse everything. You just might discover a new favorite item!

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. We’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly

Berea Gardens:  Market Open


Howdy,

The market is open for ordering for this week’s Wednesday pick ups. We will again have Red Mountain Tomatoes on the table this week. I don’t list these for ordering so that you can pick size, ripeness, etc. when you are here. We should have about 20 pounds on the table and if you would like us to hold some back for you leave a comment for us on your order and let us know about how much you want. The price is $2.75/lb.

Blessings,
Bob & Lynnita
