Champaign, OH:  Oh, My Darling


Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me…
(Knock Three Times-Dawn)

No need to knock three times because we are always here for you!! All you need to do is toss us your orders, sit back, continue your distancing, and let us get groovy with all that you need or want…

I feel like these fun little song implants are making up our Quarantine Playlist, available at the end of the quarantine, when we draw customer names!

And…may I just tell you that once again, you are showing us some record numbers for this early in the game, this weekend!!

Also…to bring loveliness into these days, we have Hickory Acres with their live plants!!! So beautiful, full of color, and will put the brightness in your days!!

Oakview Farm Meats added new cuts of meat to the market!!

We are all just waiting for you…go ahead, knock three times, and we will tell you how groovy we think you are!

And, when you pick up on Thursday, it’s an enjoyable drive to Oakview Farm Meats, we will have all of your boxes in the greenhouse, we will bring them to your car, and while you wait, take in the beautiful view…it’s so good for your soul…

Ok, my sweetness…see you, soon!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Northeast GA Locally Grown:  Market is open for orders!


Good Evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!

Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible for upcoming markets. This market system may continue to be a good alternative for our community accessing food. We are and will continue to operate under CDC and federal guidelines to the best of our ability and knowledge. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email on Tuesday night with ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!

Go to the market >>

Clean Meats
Baked Goods with Organic ingredients
Pastured Eggs
See all products

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.

Come shop this week at the Statesboro Market2Go! Place your order by Tuesday midnight for pickup Thursday afternoon.

We’re mindful of keeping ourselves, our vendors and our customers healthy by following sanitation guidelines and maintaining social distance. We’ve redesigned our order pickups in a drive-through process to minimize social contact. Please read about the detail here. You can also have your orders delivered to your home.

Enjoy lots of fresh, local, delicous vegetables like spinach, kale, collards, turnips and turnip greens, mustard greens, mushrooms, green garlic, and green onions, asparagus, strawberries, broccoli, and much, much more!

We offer a full line of fresh and delicious dairy – Milk, buttermilk, chocolate milk, cream, half and half, butter, and ice-cream from Southern Swiss Dairy. They are a family owned and operated dairy in Waynesboro that offers products with pasteurized, non-homogenized milk from their line of Brown Swiss cows.

In addition to fresh, local, delicous vegetables, we have plenty of items you need. You can buy locally grown pastured poultry and meat like beef and pork, and sustainable seafood.

There’s loaves of bread, already baked, or you can purchase locally milled flour and cornmeal and make your own.

Enjoy sustainable seafood! We have Doug’s Wild Caught Alaska salmon! Purchase from our annual winter stock while it lasts, or order Georgia Wild Caught shrimp or NC coast flounder from Prosser’s Seafood.

If you want a delicious meal made from market products, but don’t have time to cook, you can purchase a healthy prepared meal from Victory Garden, 4 & 20 Bakers, Caribbean Feast, or a soup stock from Ma’s Country Pantry.

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest News




Market News

Hi all-
I hope you and your families are doing well in these difficult days. I’m grateful for the sunshine!

An update: I’m going to suspend Fresh Harvest deliveries until the coronavirus is under better control. For myself and my family — and for others — we’re staying home.

The farmers and producers that participate with Fresh Harvest have been hit hard by the virus and the economic effects of it. Many producers had substantial sales with restaurants which have immediately dried up. Dozen Bakery is temporarily closed, but hopes to reopen April 6th. Bongo Java has closed for the time being. When I learn of alternative options for you to purchase from Fresh Harvest producers, I will do my best to let you know. Strawberry season is approaching and we’ll try to figure out how to get those to you.

I’ve always enjoyed seeing all of you on Wednesdays, and I miss it. Hope you are staying healthy.

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

Champaign, OH:  Golden


We are stardust, we are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden…
(Woodstock-Joni Mitchell)

Well, last night was our first market, with record numbers, held at the farm, and I must say, with just a few adjustments to times of vendor deliveries…it was a smashing success!!! You, the customers, made for a seamless, enjoyable, and fun market pick up!

Curbside service was a breeze, and those of you who waited on your boxes to be brought to your car, told me how much you loved standing outside, taking in the view, the spring air, and the drive that brought you out.

The prepay system was a HUGE help in getting your orders out to you, in a timely manner, while keeping the traffic to a minimum inside the shop!

So, here we are, another week available for ordering, and we are so excited to welcome you back!

Yesterday’s market orders looked amazing, and you all left with shining, smiling faces…

Much love, much golden hued happiness…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Champaign, OH:  Thank You


And so today, my world it smiles…
(Thank You-Led Zeppelin)

Well, market customers, that’s a wrap for the first market pick up held at Oakview Farm Meats!! It was a spectacular market with spectacular customers, and spectacular vendors!!

Thank you for allowing us to bring your orders to your cars, or, keeping social distance happening, inside the shop! The spirit of the evening was all about happy, and peace, and kindness.

I loved the customers who found such tranquility in the views, I loved the customers who were excited to take a drive out of town, and to get to know the new venue. We collected a whole lot of new customers, and we hope to continue the trend!

Thank you, for being patient, while waiting in your cars, and thank you for all of the kind words.

With that, I am opening the market, once again…we will continue to conduct the market, at the farm, with pick up times, 4pm-6pm.

Here we go…and, once again, from the bottom of my heart, we all thank you, kindly!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
