Statesboro Market2Go:  Just Added!


This week has brought lots of great new products to Market2Go!

First off we’re thrilled to announce that Barrow Woodworks, a long time Saturday market favorite, has joined the online market and is offering his marvelous handmade wooden cutting boards, puzzles, chess sets, and clocks!

Next up we have three new vegetables for sale from Poor Robin Gardens. Whether you’d rather feel the heat with Ricardo’s fresh jalapeños, cool down with a long green cucumber, or enjoy a classic southern dinner with his new green beans, there’s definitely something here to suit all tastes.

Don’t miss out on this year’s chance to try some sweet Vanilla Peach Jam from J.R.’s Unique Jelly & Jam! Since it’s made in small batches from the first crop of peaches from Ogeechee Peaches it’s understandably a very limited edition product.

There’s a brand new vendor joining Market2Go, so please join us in welcoming Fluffelle, who’s selling both a cool new soap called Farmhouse Sink, and a lavender and vanilla scented room spray (a welcome novelty given how homebound most of us are at the moment!) Both handmade in Statesboro.

And finally, there’s some big news from Southern Soaked, who’s got a batch of new products as well! This long-awaited body butter has a whipped fluffy texture, is made with natural ingredients and comes in three alluring scents: a zesty citrus, a powerful eucalyptus mint combo, and a sweet lavender vanilla mixture.

Thank you for your support of the market and of our dedicated local farmers and producers.

Middle Tennessee Locally Grown:  Did you also get two copies of this?


From Sow’s Ear Piggery:

Sow’s Ear Piggery has posted some additional pork products this week, including two Boston Butts (a summer time BBQ favorite), two tenderloins (a prized cut), and 3-pound packages of chops (these are the last 3 packages of chops we will have until late June!).

In addition, we still have quantities of pork stew meat, pork cutlet, shoulder steaks, ground pork, and fresh ham steaks (these are simply thin cuts from back leg of the pig. Brown in a skillet, cover with some liquid and seasoning. Simple!).

As always, our pork is Non-GMO fed, no antibiotics or any other additives.

From Carter at CS3 Farms

We have carob power balls, two flavors of shrub concentrate (drinking vinegars), and flowers!

Our carob balls are handmade, with raisins and astragalus. Carob tastes a little like chocolate, is Nutrient-Dense, low in calories, and a good source of calcium.

Try a gut-healthy Ginger-Fig or Wolfberry Mint shrub/tonic for great taste combined with nutritious ingredients. Use them as a salad dressing poured over your choice of salad greens or microgreens, or mixed with water for a delicious and refreshing drink.

The field daisies are blooming brightly — get you a dozen to brighten your home! The bachelor buttons (cornflowers) are also showing off. Bachelor buttons are edible and medicinal, so you can “recycle” them after they are finished blooming! Make a bouquet or an edible centerpiece.

(Top, L to R) Carob Balls & Radishes.
(Bottom, L to R) Ginger-Fig Shrub Concentrate & Bachelor buttons.
All items found under “Growers”.

From Dogwood Valley Greenhouse

There are a very few tomato plants left, and I’ve added a couple of jalapeno peppers. First come, first served, as there will be no more vegetable plants this spring. I have lots of beautiful herbs, available both as plants and as ‘Fresh-cuts’. But if you need one I haven’t listed, let me know and I’ll try to find it.

The letter of the week is ‘S’: sedum, shasta daisy, and Stokesia aster! All will make the more sunny areas of your garden shine! I still have a good selection of perennials for shady areas too.

(Top, L to R) Jalapeno pepper plant and Green creeping sedum.
(Bottom, L to R) Shasta daisy and Stokesia aster.

GFM :  God Bless The USA


Yalaha, FL:  Happy Hurricane Season may we only have near misses


Basil Plants available.

We have lots of Shoots and microgreens available this week and the lettuce is still available for the moment.

I’m not bringing in outside stuff this week. If you really want me to bring in the outside stuff you will have to let me know ahead of time so I can make the arrangements to go pick up next week. Currently the timing doesn’t seem to work out that well and I don’t want to pick up extra just in case and not have it get sold.

If you want to place and order and pick up before the standard window, just let me know.

Standard Ordering window below.
Order now through 7 am Friday May 29th for Sat May 30th Pickup, or tell me when you want to pick up, we usually have flexibility.

We Are Flexible, TELL ME if you want to make special arrangements for produce, I am open and willing especially now. I just like to know when to expect people to show up.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up! (and if I don’t reply to confirm within a day, bump my e-mail or text me 407-342-8515. Though I have cleaned up my e-mail so hopefully I won’t Miss Anyone.)

Sign in to order. https://yalaha.locallygrown.net/market

You have to sign in to see the add to cart button. Then set the number and click the add to cart button on the items you want to buy (it is the little picture right next to the quantity box.) Remember you need to check out before your order will be placed.

Stones River Market:  Market is STILL OPEN -- See you Wednesday but 30 minutes earlier


Today is your last day to get your orders in for our June 3rd Market delivery. The Market will close at 10:00 pm this evening. https://stonesriver.locallygrown.net

Good Morning, We will be adjusting hours for this Wednesday’s Market on June 3rd in regards to our Growers delivering their orders and Customers picking up their orders. Growers will bring their orders to the Market 3:30 to 4:15pm. Customers Pickup time has been moved up 30 minutes from 4:30 to 6:00pm. Wednesday pickup will be on the Curb from 4:30 to 6:00pm.

We are doing this in regards to Sunday’s afternoon and evening demonstration taking a turn for the worse and the City issued a 6:30 pm curfew. Not knowing if the curfew will continue we feel moving up a half hour will allow everyone a chance to pickup and be back to their destinations before curfew.

Look forward seeing you “At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday June 6th from 4:30 – 6:00pm, please contact me if you are unable to make delivery or are running late, please phone, email or text me so we can make arrangements to get your order to you.

Athens Locally Grown:  ALG CLOSED Again For Another Week


Athens Locally Grown will be closed one more week.

It’s been rather difficult finding a place that can host us during the pandemic. Our need for space, for our growers, our organizing, and you, has never been greater. The ideal places that would work for us, that were sitting unused just a few weeks ago, are mostly opening back up again. Or, they’re not wanting to have a bunch of people come through (and that’s totally understandable).

I’m watching the covid infection rates rise in the state once again, and I’m just not ready to cram us all back into the bike shop. It’s just not the right time.

I have found a place, though, with the minimum we need, but it’s not available to us until next week. It would be temporary, but it would get us through the summer while we either find a more permanent home (or are able to return to Ben’s Bikes). It’s across the street from the airport on Winterville Rd in an area of artists studios. There is a car loop right in front that could handle you all, and space where we can set up and keep all our shelves we use to organize all the grocery bags. I’ve always thought of the airport as pretty far out, but the new Olympic Drive exits off the loop put it only two minutes away from there.

What do you think? If this move would absolutely keep you from ordering from our growers, please let me know. I am still pursuing other leads (and thank all of you who continue to feed those to me) and this would be temporary for part of the summer, but I do want to know if it’s too much of a change for you.

Another place that has a lot of potential, but isn’t available until July, is the property on Tallassee Drive that has hosted the Double Helix STEAM school. It’s even closer to the loop, just past the Whitehead Rd roundabout. There’s easy access down Whitehead Rd, too, so the Tallassee bridge construction won’t be a pain. Not only would we be able to have pickups there, but it also has a commercial kitchen, space to hold classes and workshops, a walk-in cooler our growers could use, and other amenities that could make what we do on Thursday just be one part of a bigger picture.

I’d love to know your thoughts about that, too. Now is a perfect time to reinvent ourselves and build something even better than before. I wish we didn’t have to take a couple weeks off while we worked things through, but I try as I might I couldn’t avoid that.

In the meantime, please support our growers at the other markets that are now back up and running, or at their own locations. The Comedian takes online orders for Saturday pickup at the bakery here: https://www.thecomerian.com/online-ordering. Dawson Farms has been contacting their regular milk customers to offer alternative pickups. 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.

I promise we’ll be back as soon as we possibly can, and odds are very good that will be next week.

Falls Park Farmers Market:  Happy June!


The online Falls Park Farmer’s Market is open again! Shop now and pick up in person on Saturday if you’re not able to walk the market in person this week!

We have nearly 700 items for curbside pickup again this week! Ordering is now open until midnight on Wednesday evening. Please consider placing an online order for the bulk of your needs and then walk through for any items that are not online or you may have missed.

Pickup will run from 8-10. Please remember to pick up items as early as possible as there may be some items that are best kept cold. An early pick up is best for all products. The pickup will continue to be in front of the shelter underneath the Farmer’s Market sign. Delivery will be put on hold until further notice.
