Auburn Locally Grown:  At Auburn Locally Grown this week

The Auburn Locally Grown online market at has quite a diversity of products for you this week, including milk, cheese, and butter from Working Cows Dairy, goat milk and cheese from Bulger Creek Farm, farm fresh eggs, granola, blueberries, honey, assorted vegetables, and all natural bath and beauty products (great for gifts), and blueberry and strawberry plants for your garden.

You still have a little time to stock up your freezer with blueberries for year round healthful smoothies or for making blueberry wine! Remember that the blueberry farms offer pick your own at reduced prices. Have someone that you need to catch up with? Bring that friend to the blueberry patch and chat over the blueberry bushes. It makes the picking very enjoyable.

Thank you for your support.

It’s time to place your order for fresh local produce to be delivered on Thursday. Some of the highlights of our market this week include:

  • lots of eggs, both chicken and duck
  • dried herbs and spices, as well as fresh herb plants
  • bath and beauty products and insect repellent
  • a good variety of flowering perennial plants for sun or shade, as well as several foliage hanging baskets
  • several cuts of beef and lamb
  • lettuce, garlic, and popcorn

The market is growing, and we hope you can help it to grow by suggesting ideas for gaining more customers and more growers. Everyone wins when there is more variety and quantity. We won’t always be able to implement your suggestions; but we will certainly listen and discuss them.

Dothan, Alabama:  Welcome Gaucho, Deals & Dog Days of Summer...

Welcome Gaucho Farms and Deal Farms to Market At Dothan ONLINE! We are thrilled (or as some might say, happier than a pig in mud!)to have these two farming families join us online. Check out their products!
These are the “Dog Days” of Summer…the sultry part of summer (July 3 – August 11)…a period of stagnation marked by lethargy, inactivity or indolence. “Dog Days” affects plants & produce just like people & pets. That makes us very grateful for our growers who work so hard to bring the seasons best produce to us. So, lets give thanks and enjoy the fruits of the farmers’ labor!
Stay Cool,
Susan & Amanda

Market News

Hi, Everyone! While we are in transition, I can guarantee it will take the three of us a little while to keep up with things. For now I figure if we can open and close the market we are doing OK! And that brings to mind a new take on an old joke:

How many people does it take to replace Jess in the market?

The answer, of course, is at least three! And even then we are running to catch up. Linda, Eva, and I really appreciate your patience with us over the next few months – the busiest time for the market.

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” ? Eckhart Tolle

We hope you embrace Eckhart’s take on things. The market is growing, and we hope to help it grow even more. We also hope you will join us in this by suggesting ideas for growth, both for gaining more customers and more growers. Everyone wins when there is more variety and quantity. We won’t always be able to implement your suggestions; but we will listen to them, discuss them, and take them to the Board if necessary. One thing I intend to do is contact other markets to see how they have met their growth challenges. Look for further information on this in the future.

Thank you all for your support!
