Champaign, OH:  The Beat Goes On


The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da…
(Sonny and Cher)

Getting all groovy on a Tuesday, lovely market customers.

While you are letting this tune take over your brain for the day, remember to get your market orders in for the week, by 8pm, this evening!!

The week just seemed to fly by, and even your market manager still needs to get her orders in!!

So, until I see you on Thursday…the beat goes on…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Siloam Springs, AR:  Online Market is Open!


siloamsprings.locallygrown.net

Good morning! I am excited to share that Abby Trinidad, our Events and Marketing Coordinator, will now be managing the farmers market. I will still be hanging around as I accepted the position of Executive Director for Main Street Siloam Springs. If you need to contact Abby her email is abby@mainstreetsiloam.org

Fall is quickly approaching and that means a transition from summer vegetables like tomatoes to more root vegetables, greens, and winter squash. A delightful change and your body will thank you for eating seasonal foods.

Enjoy the beautiful week and see you Saturday!

Market News

The heat has been hard on the plants, as it is always this time of year. When it’s hot and humid like it’s been, flowers have a really hard time setting fruit, and we see a sudden drop-off of the summer veggies. It’s supposed to get cooler and rainier this week, so that’ll be a big help to them and to the fall veggies that are on the way!

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!
