McColloms Market:  December Market is Now Closed

Hi All:

The Market is closed. Pick up will be tomorrow (Wednesday) at my house from 4:30 – 6:30. Please use the front door.

See you then.



Champaign, OH:  Merry and Bright!

’Tis the season, and all that jazz…

A reminder that you have until tomorrow morning, Wednesday, at 8am, to get your orders in!

And…for everyone who has been asking, I wanted to wait, until now, so as not to confuse the market pick up dates, etc., but, we will have one more market, after this one. That market pick up date will be on December 20! We will then close the market for the entire holiday, to give your market managers, the vendors, the staff of the YMCA, and you, a bit of a holiday break, and then a regroup.

I will reopen the market ordering, for 2019, on January 3rd, and your first market pick up for the new year will be on January 10!

Now…go, order, we will see you on Thursday!!

Athens Locally Grown:  ALG Market Open for December 13

Market News

Looks like the weather took a look at the calender and decided to give us something more fitting to the season. We’ve had several freezes now and so so much cold rain, and that will put an end to all of the summer produce that was still making a decent go of things outdoors. Several of our growers do have high tunnels that they’ll be growing in all winter, and between passive solar heating and the occasional application of direct heat, you may see some goodies like beans and tomatoes right on through to spring.

I expect ALG to remain open the weeks of both Christmas and New Year’s. Some of our growers might take time off, but we’ll be here to serve those with items to sell and you who wish to buy them.

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 on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Other Area Farmers Markets

Most other area markets are starting to close down for the season or move to winter hours. The Athens Farmers Market is still open on Saturdays at Bishop Park. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is up and running, Saturdays from 9am to 1pm, and you can find out more here: The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check for more information. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running on winter hours now on Saturdays from 1-4pm. Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from noon to 4pm. You can learn all about them here: If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

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!
