Market News

Happy fall! This weather is delicious, and we and our other farmers have been busy planting all the veggies that will be available throughout the rest of the fall and into the winter and spring. We’ve got several new vendors in the works – including another honey vendor with some delicious sourwood honey – so keep an eye on the market throughout the week to see when the honey gets listed.
FYI, we will not be opening the market next week due to travel, so be sure you stock up on all of your favorites this week.
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!

Statesboro Market2Go:  Order Before Midnight!


Remember to place your Market2Go order before midnight for pickup on Thursday.

Special Event This Week


In response to popular demand, 4 & 20 Bakers will return this week as our featured pop-up vendor at the Statesboro Market2Go drive-through. You’ll see Chad’s big silver food truck in the parking lot of the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau during pickup hours, from 4:00 to 6:00, ready to serve you wood-fired pizza, designer cupcakes, and homemade lemonade. Order his “Pop Up Specials” online at Market2Go or place your order at the truck. For more than a slice, “caw” or text 912-425-3612 to direct order whole pizzas for pickup.
When visiting the food truck, please wear your mask and observe social distancing.
Market2Go orders for regular 4 & 20 food items will be handled as usual and brought to your vehicle with your other Market2Go purchases.

We have some new products to announce this week at Market2Go!

First off, we have some fuyu persimmons from Poor Robin Gardens just in time to kick off the first day of fall!

We’ve got plenty of pears, purple sweet potatoes, and a plethora of peppers available on the market, including some all new Bangladeshi peppers (available in both red and green) from Anthony’s Roots.

And finally, Jacob’s Produce’s hand picked green beans are back on the market, so be sure to get some before they run out for the week!

If you’re looking for some recipe ideas for persimmons, then consider trying out:

Thank you for supporting your local farmers and vendors!

Champaign, OH:  Jet Airliner


Ridin’ along in this big ol’ jet plane
I’ve been thinkin’ about my home
But my love light seems so far away…
(Steve Miller Band)

And, really…where else would your love light be, besides right here at this little local market of love??

It’s Tuesday, and I am actually heading out on the road, myself, so my day is crazy packed with obligations, but wanted to remind you to order before 8pm, this evening.

Also…a note from Kennedy Farms letting you know that this will most likely be the last for their tomatoes, but may still have some San Marzano for sauce making! Also, this will be the last week for their flowers!!

Man…where did the season go, so quickly??? Take advantage of the seasonal produce!!!

Ok…and as the lyrics say…

I’ve got to keep on keepin’ on
You know the big wheel keeps on spinnin’ around…

And, the market orders continue to groove…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Market News

Right on cue, we have signs that summer is winding down. The equinox comes on Tuesday, the nights will now be longer than the days, and the plants pick up on that really quick. Take the arugula, for example — there are a three different listings this week for that zesty green. It might have some heat of its own, but it’s not fond of summer at all. Right on its 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.

We are still getting new customers every week (and we love seeing new masked faces!) so for all of you here’s a quick run-down on how Thursdays go:

  • Don’t arrive at the beginning of your pickup window if you’ve got that flexibility. We fill the bags alphabetically (because it’s easier on us that way), but your arrival time or last name has no bearing on what items you get. The growers fill orders based solely on the time you placed your order, so that’s all been long decided by Thursday. Take your time getting there and that’ll naturally spread things out a bit. Flatten the curve, if you will.
  • I’m bad with faces as it is, and masks make it even harder to recognize you and even hear you when you give your name. Many of you had papers with your name written in big letters we could read through the window, and that is wonderful. If you think to do that same, it’ll make things even smoother.
  • The pickup loop does have a fair bit of room, but we don’t want you backing up into Tallassee. If you arrive faster than we can deliver orders, we may ask you to pull ahead into the loop and circle around. That may mean that some people who arrived after you may get their food before you, but as I said above, that doesn’t affect at all what items you get when things run short.
  • We’ve still got three pickup windows, and it’s totally ok if you come later than the slot you chose. If you come early, odds are high that we haven’t filled your bags yet and we may ask you to come back. Tallassee is a pretty drive, and I recommend taking it to the county line and back, just for the scenery.
  • We’re not accepting in-person payments unless absolutely necessary. We’ll have a drop box for checks or labelled envelopes of cash, but we greatly prefer Venmo payments to @athenslocallygrown or online payments through a card tied to your account. Venmo is free, and card payments have a 3% processing fee.
  • We can not accept any recycling just yet, though that may change once we get settled.
  • We cannot take your own bags or bins out of your car and fill them up
  • If you’d like to go through your items before you leave to make sure you’ve got everything, or that we didn’t mix up people’s items, feel free to pull into the lot and have a look.

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 brand new home on Tallassee Road!

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. It’s not anything like it was before, so you’ll want to read up on all the changes on their website, http://athensfarmersmarket.net. The West Broad Farmers Market is back too, 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. 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!
