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 or call Andrew at 770.530.3287

Growing Together :  Availability for August 5th


We can’t believe it’s already August! Although the heat and humidity seem to snap us back to reality quickly enough…

We’ve got some great items up this week – shishitos, cherry tomatoes, long beans, and tons of Roselle (the hibiscus leaves), which we recommend if you haven’t tried yet! A great citrus flavored green you can eat raw in salads or cooked!

Thanks for hanging in there through the summer with us. We appreciate you!
