Northeast GA Locally Grown:  MARKET IS OPEN FOR ORDERS!


Good Evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!

COVID19: As far as we are aware, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown qualifies as “essential business” and will continue to help bring the best selection of local and chemical-free foods to you and your family as long as our volunteers feel comfortable and safe. Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible for upcoming markets. This market system may continue to be a good alternative for our community accessing food. We are and will continue to operate under CDC and federal guidelines to the best of our ability and knowledge. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email on Tuesday night with ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

Augusta Locally Grown:  The Online Market is Open at Augusta Locally Grown


What a beautiful day!

The market is open and pickup will be Tuesday.
AJCC Pickup is 4-6pm
Buona Cafe Roastery Pickup is 5-7pm

Please do not arrive early for pickup. Our staff needs as much time as possible to process your order and ensure safety protocols are in being upheld.

Also, ALG has waved the membership fee for using the online market. We have instead added a surcharge fee to help with the running of the market. We found that the membership fee was a barrier for some and I goal is to make locally-sourced sustainable food accessible for all.

Thank you for supporting ALG,

Champaign, OH:  Hey, Now!!


Tonight is a short and sweet weblog because your market manager is a tired Hippie girl…

But, you totally made this market an explosion of orders and love, this evening!! You touched my soul with all of the kind words, and you made me smile, and I not only felt the warmth of the sunshine, but also the warmth of what is now becoming a driveway party as we take all of your orders, to each of your cars, and have a safe distanced chat with each of you.

You have taken the market to new levels, and I love to the moon and back for that.

I will update more, tomorrow, but tonight I wanted to let you know that we are adding another new vendor back to our fold…Blue Jacket Dairy is back with their amazing cheeses!!!

We look forward to their products!!

Now, go, have sweet dreams, and get ready to order, again, as I open up the market…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
