Siloam Springs, AR:  Online Market is Open!

Summer is ending and fall begins tomorrow! It’s been nice to wake up to cooler temperatures.

There is fresh ginger available, a variety of peppers, okra, onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, and tomatoes are still available!

Try some Pane Bianco, Dinner Rolls, Seeded Baguettes, Almond Coconut Twists, or Cinnamon Raisin Bread.

Buy some mustard to go with your brats or chicken. We now have ground chicken too.

Eggs and honey need to be on your list as well.

Stock up on laundry detergent, first aid cream, deodorant, or foaming hand soaps, or sugar scrubs. Did you know you can purchase a one gallon refill for your foaming hand soap?

If you aprons, face masks, or fall crafts we’ve got those too!

Market News

Right on cue, we have signs that summer is winding down. The equinox comes on Tuesday, the nights will now be longer than the days, and the plants pick up on that really quick. Take the arugula, for example — there are a three different listings this week for that zesty green. It might have some heat of its own, but it’s not fond of summer at all. Right on its tail we’ll see bountiful spinach, cabbages, broccoli again, and other cool season crops. The summer items will hold on as long as they can — we’ve still got over a month until frost will put an end to those (except for what our growers have planted in high tunnels and greenhouses). So, for the next few weeks we’ll get to enjoy the best of both seasons! It’s exciting times in the kitchen, for sure.

We are still getting new customers every week (and we love seeing new masked faces!) so for all of you here’s a quick run-down on how Thursdays go:

  • Don’t arrive at the beginning of your pickup window if you’ve got that flexibility. We fill the bags alphabetically (because it’s easier on us that way), but your arrival time or last name has no bearing on what items you get. The growers fill orders based solely on the time you placed your order, so that’s all been long decided by Thursday. Take your time getting there and that’ll naturally spread things out a bit. Flatten the curve, if you will.
  • I’m bad with faces as it is, and masks make it even harder to recognize you and even hear you when you give your name. Many of you had papers with your name written in big letters we could read through the window, and that is wonderful. If you think to do that same, it’ll make things even smoother.
  • The pickup loop does have a fair bit of room, but we don’t want you backing up into Tallassee. If you arrive faster than we can deliver orders, we may ask you to pull ahead into the loop and circle around. That may mean that some people who arrived after you may get their food before you, but as I said above, that doesn’t affect at all what items you get when things run short.
  • We’ve still got three pickup windows, and it’s totally ok if you come later than the slot you chose. If you come early, odds are high that we haven’t filled your bags yet and we may ask you to come back. Tallassee is a pretty drive, and I recommend taking it to the county line and back, just for the scenery.
  • We’re not accepting in-person payments unless absolutely necessary. We’ll have a drop box for checks or labelled envelopes of cash, but we greatly prefer Venmo payments to @athenslocallygrown or online payments through a card tied to your account. Venmo is free, and card payments have a 3% processing fee.
  • We can not accept any recycling just yet, though that may change once we get settled.
  • We cannot take your own bags or bins out of your car and fill them up
  • If you’d like to go through your items before you leave to make sure you’ve got everything, or that we didn’t mix up people’s items, feel free to pull into the lot and have a look.

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 at our brand new home on Tallassee Road!

Other Area Farmers Markets

If ALG doesn’t have everything you need, please support our growers at the other markets that are now back up and running, or at their own locations. The Comerian takes online orders for Saturday pickup at the bakery here: 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, 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 And of course Collective Harvest is going strong over at

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!

Yalaha, FL:  Weblog Entry

We are still here and doing the Summer Vacation Schedule. Lettuce production doesn’t usually get good until October but we are starting to get a little kale already. I’m still here and we still have some of the basic stuff but I’m busy doing farm rebuilding/clean up and preparing for fall planting. Contact me if you want anything listed. Or if you might want to make a Huge batch of pesto (I actually have to pull out and throw away a large amount of Basil just to make room for fall planting.)

Anyway, Feel Free to contact me if you want to order anything or make requests for fall crops. I’m here but may not remember to do weekly posting for the Months of August/September.

Since I am out of the normal schedule for now, please remember to indicate when you would like to make your pickup appointment.

Milk is available, we pick up Wed so if you want some I need to know by Tuesday.

Summer time brings weather not conducive to growing much here, So I am trying out throwing together anything edible (including edible weeds) and salad like into a mix and calling it Wild Summer Mix – Cut Salad Mix

We have Shoots and microgreens available.
Following is the Normal Schedule to make it easy for me to paste into the notices come Fall** 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 September 25th for Sat Sept 26th Pickup, or tell me when you want to pick up, we usually have flexibility, especially if you order buy in products or milk or just want to pick up during the week.

We Are Flexible, TELL ME if you want to make special arrangements for produce, I am open and willing especially now. I just need to know the day before so I can harvest anything that needs early morning handling and I 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.

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.
Remember to let me know when you want to pick up on Sat or maybe even Friday late afternoon or on Sunday. (If I don’t send you an e-mail confirmation of your order and pick up time, please make sure you checked out and completed your order.)
