Yalaha, FL:  Get your Christmas order ready

Order now through 5 pm Thursday December 20th for Saturday December 22nd Pickup, (or contact me if you want a different day, we do have some flexibility.)

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up!

Hi All, Just want to share that I have been getting back into fermenting again. Let me know if you are interested in getting fresh cultures for Kombucha, Milk Kefir, or Water Kefir. My Kefir grains especially have been growing fast. The Kombucha scoby is a little slower about it and my Jun scoby has been a bit resistant to the idea of replicating (which I understand is kinda common for that particular culture.)

Some LETTUCE is available.

KALE is available. I have the living green crinkly Kale on Sale this week if anyone wants to get some!
Stock up on kale now for your New Years resolution to eat healthy. Easy to wash/dry/remove stem and Freeze for adding to green smoothie drinks.

Please let me know what micro greens or shoots you are interested in and I can start growing enough to make them available (most take less than 2 weeks.)
Also, if you want me to list super foods like Purslane, let me know, I have it volunteering wild here and I will likely also have nettles come winter/spring season.

Send me a message if you are interested in Getting Channel Catfish.

If you have any particular requests, let me know I’m happy to grow to order.

Sign in to order.

You have to sign in to see the add to cart button. Then click the add to cart button on the items you want to buy. 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.)

On Thursdays: Here’s a map.

Market News

Winter officially starts this week, and so the days will start getting longer once again. There are plenty of other holidays these next few weeks, of course, and Athens Locally Grown will remain open through all of them. Some of our growers are taking time off to slow down and recharge, but we’ll be here for those who have food to offer you, and we’ll be here with our regular hours for you to get it from them. Those of you who are travelling for holidays, safe travels and we’ll see you when you return!

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 has one final Saturday 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!

NEW GROWER! Take a minute and read about Farm Girl Meats under the OUR GROWERS tab. Travis Short and his girls work really hard to produce some outstanding Chicken, Pork, and Beef at their farm in Perryville. They have 19 products listed right now. We are glad to have them join the Conway Locally Grown family!

They will be 5 for $7 in 3 flavors: Pork, Chicken, or Jalapeño & Cheese. To place an order, please add a note to your CLG order, or text me at 501-339-1039. Delicious with sides of refried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa and sour cream. They freeze very well so get some for several meals.

Do you ever wonder what smells so good at market on Fridays? I mean, besides the good looking guy at the freezers. I’m talking about down at the extra’s table. Well, it’s probably some of Tammy Sue’s Goat Milk Soap. Handmade Soap in a variety of wonderful scents for only $4. They make great gifts and ship through the mail just fine.

Now is the perfect time to plant perennial flowers that will bloom for years, starting next spring. We have plenty of old-fashioned Hellebores, Shamrock, Red, Yellow, Purple, and Cream Coneflowers, beautiful magenta-flowered rose Campion, and others. Search PLANT to see everything that’s available now.
