Northeast GA Locally Grown: Market is open for orders!
Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!
Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!
PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.
If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email or call Andrew at 770.530.3287

Growing Together : Growing Together Offerings for October 11th
We have made it through summer and are well into Fall! This is such a wonderful time for growing in the garden – the cooler temps make the produce and the farmers very happy! We have a great diversity of product, as summer crops continue to linger and overlap the new fall crops.
We are nearing the end of our growing season for the Growing Together program. We close the garden at the end of October to give time for cover crop to grow and nourish the soil, preparing to start all over again in the spring. It has been a great year, and we are so appreciative of all the support we have gotten from customers and restaurants all over Nashville.
If you haven’t gotten an order in yet, or still havent had your fill of bok choy and daikon, now is the time!! The Asian greens and radishes are great for making kimchi, fermented greens, or pickles for the winter ahead!
Thanks for your support and happy weekend!

Celebrity Tomatoes from JM Gardens in Troy are HALF OFF for a limited time!! $1.50 for 3-4 fresh tomatoes? Sounds like I need to make a big pot of chili, nacho dip, and some paste for the freezer! ;-)
And tomorrow, Saturday October 12th, visit our very own Phil Buehler at Crossway Farm in Sidney for a day of meat sampling! Phil and family will be bringing down a selection from his Carvnivore Candy Store for your tasting pleasure!
From 10am to 5pm tomorrow! Check out the Crossway Farm Facebook page for more information!
