Champaign, OH: Flower Power
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair…
(San Francisco-Scott McKenzie)
We have all been loving the ability to order fresh floral bouquets, dried bouquets, wildflower bouquets, lavender, and now house plants from the girls of Flourish!!
And, now, they want to offer you the chance to step up to their outdoor bloom bar that will be available, at this Thursday’s market pick up! Build your own bouquet, get information, and help on building your own vision, and deciding on your own stems! So fun, and we are so exciting for this!!
You can grab your orders, and then park off to the side, to go over and get your own florals! You will be paying them, directly, for this so bring extra cash or card…they can hardly wait to greet you!!

Mo’ Scrubs Product Update:
Enjoy the summer bite free and burn free with new products from Mo’ Scrubs! All natural mosquito repellent spray and balm now available! Also, if you purchased the 8oz spray bottle last summer, you can purchase a refill bag for $9! All natural SPF 30 water resistant sunscreen is also now available.

COVID19: Northeast Georgia Locally Grown will continue to help bring the best selection of local and chemical-free foods to you and your family as long as our volunteers feel comfortable and safe. Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible for upcoming markets. This market system will continue to be a good alternative for our community accessing food.

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.
