Special News From:

  • Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:
  • Now is a great time to plant perennials, and Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has a good selection available. Some area
    garden centers have had a hard time stocking their shelves this spring, as one of the primary area sources of plants
    has closed. I’ve traveled around all over middle Tennessee to source some new baby perennial plants, and am therefore
    able to sell the nice ones I’ve been collecting in past years. My market offerings have now been updated, notably including
    hostas for shady areas, and fresh cut herbs for your dinner table. In the next couple of weeks, watch for additions of
    pepper and tomato plants for the vegetable garden (when they get hardened off), as well as more mid- and
    late-season blooming perennials.
  • As always, if you are looking for something specific, please contact me, as it’s possible I have a couple in reserve.

Athens Locally Grown:  ALG Market Open for May 13


Athens Locally Grown

How to contact us:
Our Website: athens.locallygrown.net
On Twitter: @athlocallygrown
On Facebook: www.facebook.com/athenslocallygrown
On Thursdays: Here’s a map.

Market News

A special hello to all the mothers out there this week! I hope your families treated you to something a little above and beyond this weekend. It’s been a really slow week, news-wise, what with much of Athens getting ready to go to sleep for the summer. The place doesn’t quite turn into the ghost town I remember in the ‘90s when I moved here, but there’s definitely a change of pace. I see lots of pictures on social media from our farmers busy in the fields, so as many people leave town for a bit, that just means more great fruit and veggies for the rest of us!

I just can’t get enough of this beautiful long spring we’re getting this year, and it looks like this coming week will be more of the same. Usually we’d be seeing the end of the delicate crops like asparagus and strawberries, but at this rate we’ll be seeing both right on into June. And I won’t complain one little bit.

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 market’s home on Tallassee Road!

We are still getting new customers every week (and we love seeing new masked faces!) so for all of you you can find a detailed run-down of how Thursdays go on our website here: https://athens.locallygrown.net/faq#7

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. They’re still operating under pandemic rules, so you’ll want to read up on all the changes on their website, http://athensfarmersmarket.net. The West Broad Farmers Market is back, 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. The Culinary Kitchen of Athens has started a socially distanced winter market, Saturdays from 11am to 2pm at Hendershots on Prince. 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!

Independence,VA:  Market closes Monday night at 8 pm!


Good evening!

And just like that, we’re back to Wednesday Online Markets! Starting this week, pickup will be on Wednesday afternoons from 4-6 pm. We’ll continue to stick with our curbside pickup routine.

Sleepy Fox Gardens and Nursery have requested that you return the pots from your plant purchases (you can leave empty pots in your box after you pick up and we’ll make sure they get them).

Remember, a wide variety of organic Southern Exposure seeds are now available to order on the Online Market! Save on shipping and help support the Market!

Thanks again and happy shopping!
To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

Schedule Your Pickup Time: Calendly.
After you click “Confirm” on your time, be sure to enter your information and click, “Schedule an Event”. You will get a confirmation e-mail. If you do not receive a confirmation, you are not scheduled and need to try again.
