Tullahoma Locally Grown:  Ezekiel Bread :)


Hi All,
I just noticed that Ezekiel bread was “sold out” on the market, but it really isn’t, I just forgot to update the quantity on it. So it’s available if anyone would like some. Thank you!

HAPPY OLD YEAR!

Let me express our gratitude to all of you: farmers, eaters, volunteers, non-volunteers, lurkers, plants, animals (even the mice), fairies, elves, etc. for all the ways you have contributed to a successful 2012 CAFÉ year!

We look forward to all the adventures that 2013 will bring us and invite you to continue to find ways to participate with us in adding more farms, more mouths, and more services.

Remember that we are slightly off our weekly schedule with tomorrow being a holiday. Let me repeat the following market logistics:

Market ordering window will close today, Monday, at noon.

No pickups tomorrow, Tuesday, at any location.

Pickups Wednesday at TAC (3:30-6:00) and OMC (4:30-6:30). No Liberty pickup.

Party well and eat well. Lance

Market News

Hello, and happy new year! 2013 marks the start of Athens Locally Grown’s twelfth year in operation. What began as the very first internet farmers market anywhere has moved beyond Athens to hundreds of communities across the continent, and continues to spread. I’m so very pleased to be a part of it, and to have you here along with me!

I’m still in holiday mode here. I’m not in academia myself anymore, but so many people I know are, so it seems like winter break to me. Several of our growers are still away from home or otherwise taking a break from selling, but we still have nearly 900 products to choose from this week. Happy eating!

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!

Northeast GA Locally Grown:  Locally Grown - Availability for January 2nd, 2013


Hey Local Food Lovers,

We’re back this week! Hope you enjoyed the break, but you’re probably like me and ready to get back into your local food eating habits after the holidays. It’s hard to believe that come Wednesday it’ll be a new year. A New Year always brings with it new opportunities and we are eager to dive into 2013 with gusto. As the farmers and other food producers that participate in Locally Grown prepare for next years bounty of food one thing that is incredibly useful to us all is your feedback.

One thing that would be incredibly useful is knowing which foods you’d like to see more of here at Locally Grown. We’ve created a survey that should take no more than a minute or two that will help farmers determine what crops they should plant this coming year, and it may just insure that you get to see more of the foods that you like as well.

We’re trying to get in all the results by Sunday, January 20th. That way folks will have time to get their seed orders in for spring planting. It’ll be here before you know it.

That’s it for tonight. I think Brooks Franklin of Leah Lake Farms will back at the Clarkesville pick up on Wednesday so you can look forward to meeting your farmer this week!

Thanks again to all of you who supported us in 2012! It was a fantastic year and we appreciate your passion to…..

EAT WELL!

Atlanta Locally Grown:  Available for Saturday January 5


I hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas. I sure hope you also start off with a Very Happy New Year as well.

The market is open and the gardens are still growing. We have gotten plenty of moisture. We just need a bit more light. That is coming along but the cold weather is rearing it head. We will have plenty of veggies to go with a few mushrooms.

We plan to deliver a few pigs to the market soon so look for some new supplies.

We will be making our regular milk run up this week so make sure you order up.

Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.

Thank you for all your support. Please remember to have your orders placed by 8PM on Wednesday. Pick ups are on Saturday from 9 to 10 at the Piedmont Green Market (Double B Farm booth), Sandy Springs Green Market (Taylorganic booth)(We will be here from 9-10 for pick ups only). We will try to make a run to Brookhaven if we have enough orders, otherwise we will need you to p/u at Piedmont

Thank you,
Brady Bala
Market Manager
