Market News

Hello, there! I’m taking some time off from wrapping presents and baking cookies to let you know that we are indeed open as usual this week. We’ll be at Ben’s Bikes on Thursday from 4:30 to 8pm as usual, and we’ll be taking orders all day Monday and Tuesday as usual. A few of our growers are taking the week off, but there are still nearly 900 products listed. I know many of you are out of town this week as well, so maybe the rest of us will have less competition over the eggs.

Usually the growers stop listing things for the week before I open the market to you all for orders. Some of them may have been distracted with family things this weekend, however, so I’m keeping their side of the market open in case they didn’t yet make it to their computers today. So, place your orders now like you do, but you may also want to check back later on Monday or even on Tuesday to see if any growers have been late to list products. We’ll combine your orders for you, no matter how many you place.

If you’re celebrating holidays this week, I hope you have very happy ones. If you celebrated yours last week, I hope they were the very best. Myself, I try to celebrate early and often. There are so many reasons to celebrate, I figure.

Thanks so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, and local food in general. 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!

Message from Market Manager

We are required to place our order with GCF early Wednesday morning so PLEASE ORDER your produce from Geraldson Community Farm by Tuesday, 6:00 PM at which time their produce will be taken off the Market for the week. If you don’t want to place your entire order right away, you can always come back and place a separate order with other Growers before Wednesday noon when the Market closes. Thank you for working with us on this requirement.

WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST CUSTOMERS! Once you have submitted your order, if in doubt about what you owe, you can always confirm what you have been charged for by checking your account history and viewing your most current invoice. Instructions on how to do that are on our Q&A page under the question entitled Since you don’t provide an invoice with delivery, how do I know what I owe? . Also, since your vegetables are picked fresh within 24 hours of delivery, they should be lasting for WEEKS in your refrigerator. When you accept delivery, please take a few minutes to inspect your order to protect your vegetables from unnecessary spoilage.

Champaign, OH:  Merry Christmas!

Hello friends!

As we won’t talk much between here and Thursday, please know we wish you the very best holiday yet! We are thankful for you!

Conway, AR:  Opening Bell & Season Greeting

Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,

Merry Christmas! The market will be open this week, so take a break from your holiday celebrations to order some local food! Perhaps your friends and relatives with whom you are visiting would like to see where you get your great food from – take the opportunity to show them the market website! There are still plenty of veggies available, despite the recent onslaught of winter weather. Don’t forget a fresh loaf of bread, or stock up on a bag of apples or potatoes. I know Christmas might be your first priority, but don’t forget to prepare for your New Year’s party – make sure you have something healthy to eat to make up for all the cookies you’re going to devour over the next few days!

Go to to place your order. Remember to hit the checkout button when you’re finished and you will receive a confirmation email once your order has been placed.

Enjoy the holidays!
