Statesboro Market2Go:  Market2Go Pickup!


MARKET PICKUP TOMORROW

Remember! Market2Go pickup in Statesboro is now at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau (SCVB) at 222 South Main Street. All pickups are on Thursday. Pickup times have recently changed for Statesboro and Sylvania, so please read carefully.

STATESBOROTHURSDAY Drive Through at SCVB starts at 3:30.

  • Last names A – F 3:30 pm — 4:30 pm
  • Last names G – N 4:30 pm — 5:30 pm
  • Last names O – Z 5:30 pm — 6:30 pm

SYLVANIATHURSDAY Pickup at Victory Gardens General Store
All Sylvania customers 4:00 pm — 5:00 pm

Want to change your pickup time? The purpose of the time slots is to try to achieve an even flow so nobody has to wait too long. But we want this to be convenient for you: if you need to change your time slot or location, please text 912.481.2263, tell us the ORDER NAME and the TIME you would like to pick up. We will even assign you some “bonus time” if you need to come after 6:30. Just let us know so we can make sure your order is in the right place at the right time. Please do NOT come before 3:30 as this creates a traffic backup.

THE DRIVE-THROUGH PROCEDURE in Statesboro.

  • Drive to the right (counter clockwise) all the way around the SCVB, keeping to the outer perimeter and maintaining a tight queue. A volunteer will check you in as you come around the far side of the building..
  • Please display the name(s) for your order(s) on a windshield placard to assist in quick and safe check-in.
  • Please wear a mask while communicating with market staff.
  • Provide access to your vehicle and to the containers you want loaded (bags, boxes, bins or coolers); unlock the back door or the trunk, with containers inside.
  • We recommend that you bring a cooler for transporting meat, dairy and perishable items. Ice cream melts, even in a short car trip, and our fresh non-homogenized milk is temperature sensitive.
  • Wait in your car for the runner to come out with your order and load into your containers. Make sure your name placard is visible.
  • If you did not prepay on line with a debit or credit card, please make a check for exact amount when your order is delivered. (You may pay cash in exact amount, but any “change” from cash received will be credited to your account. Use an envelope to label the cash payment with your order name.)

PICKUP for SYLVANIA CUSTOMERS.
Pickup is across the street from the Victory Gardens General Store. Please remain in your car until volunteers bring your order, and wear a mask when interacting with volunteers. We recommend that you bring a cooler for transporting meat, dairy and perishable items.

HOME DELIVERY CUSTOMERS.
Orders will be delivered between 2:30 and 5:00 by Boro Takeout. You will receive a notice when your driver is on the way. We recommend you leave a cooler at the front door (or your designated delivery location) to facilitate no-contact delivery and to keep perishable food safe.

The Cumming Harvest:  July is here!


Good morning everyone, We hope everyone had an amazing and safe Fourth of July. Here are the announcements for this week: We have had too many people leave their products every week, so we will be charging the five dollar holding fee. This fee will be charged if you place an order, and do not cancel before Thursday at 8 PM. We cannot continue to hold orders, every single week for clients. We would love to be able to, however we simply just do not have the space. Also, please remember that the market closes at 12 noon sharp on Saturday. We have had a lot of clients trying to show up after 12, and we need to be respectful of the volunteers time. Starting this week if you pick up after 12, and have not communicated to the market manager that you are running late, we will be charging a five dollar service fee. We understand things happen, so if something pops up please alert the market manager as soon as possible. As always if there are any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out.

Market News

While this may be one of the stranger summers (a high of 79 in July?!), our market is full of delicious summer produce. We have a variety of tomatoes, squashes, and eggplant – everything you need for a summer ratatouille – and enough lettuces, microgreens, and crisp veggies for a perfect salad. If there is produce you want that you can’t find in our market, let us know! We’ll do our best to source it locally and bring it to you as soon as it’s ready.
If you haven’t seen the article about our market in this month’s Smoke Signals, be sure to check it out! We’re so happy to be a part of such a special community as Big Canoe.
Please remember as you order that per the POA’s instructions, we cannot leave your food unattended. If you need us to deliver to your neighbor or slip your order inside your house, please be sure to tell us in the comments so we can make sure your order gets to you safely!
If you have other suggestion about how we can continue to make deliveries without being able to leave products unattended, we’d love to hear them. We’re still developing the best ways to get your orders to you, and we welcome any of your ideas.
As always, if you enjoy being a member of Big Canoe Harvest, tell your friends! The more the market grows, the more additional vendors and products we’ll be able to include. As always, your feedback help shapes the market. Let us know what you think about the Big Canoe Harvest products.
Have a wonderful week, and we’ll see you Saturday!
Whitney and Eddy

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!
