Dawson Local Harvest:  Don't Miss Out on BEEF & CHICKEN Thanksgiving weekend!

Dawson Local Harvest for November 16th

Don’t Miss Out on BEEF & CHICKEN for Thanksgiving Weekend!

Our PRE-THANKSGIVING MARKET will have Pickup Tuesday, Nov. 20th (2 days before Thanksgiving) from 3 to 6 pm. While this is great for Yeast Rolls, Challah, Desserts, Eggs, etc. we cannot get Beef & Chicken deliveries that week, which means you must order all the delicious, natural Chicken and Beef you’ll want for that weekend By 9pm TONIGHT for pickup this FRIDAY!

Thanks, Alan, Market Manager

RAF Buying Clubs :  Last Call on Orders!

Just a quick reminder to get your orders in by midnight tonight if you haven’t already!

Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm

Manchester Locally Grown market

Our pickup location is across the street from the Manchester City Schools administration building, at

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

If you don’t see a map, click on the address link.

Good afternoon!

This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening. Please don’t forget to order! But if you do forget, give me (Linda) a call in the morning. I will most likely be able to get hold of the farmers and place a late order for you.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!

Siloam Springs, AR:  Online Market Closed week of Thanksgiving

Good morning!

In order to allow our farmers and vendors time to enjoy the Holiday week/weekend with family, the online market will be closed the week of Thanksgiving.

We will re-open Monday, November 26th.

There are pies listed for sale from Payne Family Farm which would be great for Thanksgiving! Check out our Facebook page if you want to order direct from her closer to the holiday.

You still have time to place an order or an additional order this week. We will be accepting orders through Thursday at 10 p.m.

For those who have ordered this week, I’ll see you Saturday and we wish all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Champaign, OH:  Ruby Tuesday

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you smile with every new day…
(Ruby Tuesday-The Rolling Stones)

One of my first Stones albums, purchased in a stack of albums, along with a stamped copy of the Beatles White album, all purchased at one of my favorite underground record shops that was located on Court St. in Athens, Ohio, way back in the day.

Anyway…I woke up, thought about it being Tuesday, immediately started singing this song, remembered that the market is only open, today, until tomorrow at 8am, and there you have it…

Go on, Ruby Tuesday…get your orders in…

Market News

Our Athens-area growers had so far avoided the first frost, but last night was right at freezing. It had looked like this week we’d see a couple nights down in the 20s, but the latest forecasts have it safely in the upper 30s. Even if it does freeze, though,our growers with hoop houses are starting to harvest out of them. You’ll even find fresh green beans this week, just in time for Thanksgiving!

I don’t have any Thanksgiving turkeys for you, but Back In Time Farms is back with plenty of Certified Naturally Grown chicken, if you’re looking for poultry. Some of you have already noticed that Doug’s Wild Salmon is back from Alaska with a fresh load of salmon and halibut, and we’ve got that too.

Finally, here’s a reminder that we’ll be taking next week, the week of Thanksgiving off, as we do every year. We will be open as usual this week, so if there are things you’d like for your Thanksgiving meals, you’ll need to plan ahead and order them early. If you need local produce next week, Collective Harvest CSA is doing a special pre-order market (much like ALG) with a Wednesday morning pickup at their Broad Street office. You can find info here: The last several years, Heirloom Cafe has held a mini farmers market in their parking lot on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I haven’t heard if that tradition will continue this year, but I’ll let you know if I hear that it is. Meanwhile, stock up from us this 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!

Other Area Farmers Markets

The Athens Farmers Market runs Saturday mornings at Bishop Park and Wednesday afternoons at Creature Comforts downtown. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market has returned, and you can catch the details on their website here: The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check for more information. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running Saturdays from 9 to noon. You can learn all about them here: Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from noon to 4pm. The city of Monroe has a downtown market on Saturdays, 8:30 to 12:30, and you can learn more here: If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

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!
