Athens Locally Grown:  ALG Market Open for December 7

On Thursdays: Here’s a map.

Market News

The Athens Christmas parade will be held this Thursday night, and it will be impossible to get through downtown. Plan your travel accordingly! We do not open until 4:30, but we will start filling orders earlier if the growers have all arrived and unloaded on time. If you’re coming late in the evening, be sure to give downtown a wide berth!

This is the time for holiday artisan markets, and you can find something going on pretty much every day for the next three weeks. The Indie South fair happened this weekend, and I strolled through the booths for several lovely hours yesterday, getting ideas for people on my list. I like to highlight some of my favorite markets here in our newsletter and on our Facebook page, because there are just too many to list all of them. However, the Flagpole has done a great job assembling them all into a nice descriptive list. They’ve got an online version here if you didn’t pick up the paper copy:

Looking ahead on the calendar, I expect ALG to remain open the week of 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!

Conway, AR:  NEW GROWER! Opening Bell: Turnips, Kale, Goat Cheese, Lettuce!

Good afternoon!

Just a reminder that our market will be OPEN every Friday in December.

NEW GROWER! We are very pleased to welcome Scott Sparks from Cadron Valley Acres. We toured Scott’s garden in Conway the day after Thanksgiving and were very impressed with his current chemical-free operation, as well as his vision for expanding next season. He currently has Turnips, Kale, Mustard Greens, and Napa Cabbage. He’s joining CLG at the end of the year, but will be erecting a high tunnel in February to get a jump start next spring. He also grows a very interesting, heat tolerant cilantro-like herb you will want to try. Read about all our Growers under the OUR GROWERS tab at the top of the page.

As we near the holidays, Growers will have several inexpensive gift items listed and on the EXTRAS table, including USDA rawhide treats for puppies! This Friday Maria will be set up with BBQ Pork and a variety of chocolate covered goodies, like Cherries, Ptetzels, Oreos…

Also at the market this Friday, local author Nancy Allen will be promoting her new book, “A Down-Home Twelve Days of Christmas”. She will have books available for sale. You might even ask her to autograph your copy!

Goat Cheese!…and that’s all I need to say about that.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Over 600 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

The market is now OPEN for orders. Click here to start shopping:

Please check your email a few minutes after you place your order to make sure you get an order confirmation. Thank you for being a valuable part of CLG!
Have a great week!
