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!

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. Lastly, it is imperative that you understand our policy on Unclaimed Orders found on our Q&A page. When you make a purchase you are agreeing to abide by this policy.
