Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Flower Bulbs, Veggies, Cheese & Meat




Market News

Hello!
I’m optimistic that the weather won’t impact acquiring all the goodies tomorrow for Wednesday’s delivery.

The Market will remain open until Tuesday night for you to place an order for this week.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*Orders can be placed without receiving the Sunday email. I try to open the Market between 7 and 8pm on Sunday. Sometimes I run a little late. Just go to the website: http://freshharvest.locallygrown.net/welcome to see if the Market is open.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
*PayPal payments have to be manually added to your account. There will be a delay to crediting your account due to me needing to take time to do the bookkeeping. I also have to go to each account with cash or check payments. These are sometimes delayed by procrastination or being busy. You can still place an order even though it may cause your account to be “overdrawn”. There is no penalty for going into the minus column. Sometimes I’m a little slow in getting to the bank to make deposits, but it eventually happens.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

If you need to text me, my number is 615-838-0428.

Middle Tennessee Locally Grown:  Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products!


Middle Tennessee Locally Grown market

Farm News of the Week



Sow’s Ear Piggery hopes everyone enjoyed a Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends. Now that we have all had our fill of turkey, let’s think about pork! Cutlets, chops, shoulder roasts, and sausages are available again this week. As always, our pork is natural, non-GMO, and raised outdoors.

Please note: Our current products come from an especially lean breed, so we recommend marinades and cooking methods with oils and broths that will bring moisture to these cuts.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse is planning to deliver wreath and kissing ball orders this week. If you are unable to pick up your Christmas decorations ordered at this week’s market, please make alternate arrangements with Linda.

It might be getting a little late to place orders for decorations, but if you still want one, we still have materials. We also have lots of African violets and Christmas cacti in several colors.




Deposits are now due for Nature’s Wealth’s pasture raised turkeys for Christmas! Take the stress out of Christmas preparations by placing your online pre-order today!


Only the best fresh flavorful farm products for your family! No more week-old produce trucked across the country and picked over before you get to the supermarket. All the fresh local farm products listed come from your grower and maker neighbors in Middle Tennessee.

Year-round weekly market is open for ordering from Sunday morning at 8 am till Tuesday evening at 10 pm.

Receiving options:
Thursday afternoon pickup (4:00 – 5:30 p.m.) – Fort Street, Manchester, pavilion.

Market News

This is the time for holiday artisan markets, and you can find something going on pretty much every day for the next couple weeks. Since I wrote last week, Flagpole has published their comprehensive holiday market roundup. They’ve got it online here: https://flagpole.com/arts-culture/art-notes/2019/12/04/flagpole-s-annual-holiday-market-roundup.

Looking ahead on the calendar, I expect ALG to close for the week of Christmas. Thursday falls on the 26th, and I’d like to let the growers get through the holiday without having to harvest and pack for us. We should be open the following week, though. Some of our growers might take more time off, but we’ll be here to serve those with items to sell and you who wish to buy them.

And 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

The Athens Farmers Market is open on Saturdays at Bishop Park. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is back as well, Saturdays from 9 to 1, and you can watch for weekly news here: http://www.athenslandtrust.org/west-broad-farmers-market/. The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check www.facebook.com/comerfm for more information. The Oconee County farmers market is held every Saturday 8 to noon in downtown Watkinsville. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running on Saturdays from 9 to 2pm. You can learn all about them here: www.washingtonfarmersmkt.com 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 11 to 3pm. 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!
