Shelbyville, TN:  National Farmers Market Week


Hey everyone,

This week, Aug. 5-11, is National Farmers Market Week. Make sure you check all the market has to offer.

Here is the link to the market: www.shelbyville.locallygrown.net

Eat healthy, shop local.

Yalaha, FL:  Market is open though there is only a little available now.


Order now through 5 pm August 9th for August 11th Pickup (or contact me if you want a different day, we have some flexibility.)

Dog days of summer are here, Only a small amount of lettuce available now and a few other assorted things. Summer in Florida means only limited things grow well and most farms take summer as a down time for cleaning, re-building, and taking a vacation. We are no different.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up!

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. https://yalaha.locallygrown.net/market

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.)

Green Fork Farmers Market:  Green Fork Farmers' Market--Weekly Notification


*Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers:

Stephen V., your interim Market Manager here.
As you may know, the founder and operator of Green Fork Market, Cheri LaRue has moved to North Caroline. After 7 years under her care, this has necessitated some re-organizing. To that end, instead of a Market this Wednesday, the Growers are having a meeting tomorrow to discuss the immediate future of the Market.
Everything is on the table so to speak! So if you have any suggestions, grievances, or encouragement: send them my way.

We have appreciated your patronage over the years and look forward to continuing to serve you all.

Sincerely Yours,
Stephen Vallus

Market News

It’s back to school week for both the Athens public schools and UGA, and the town is already a madhouse. It’s easy to get caught up in the new routines and forget about the old, like picking up your ALG orders on Thursday. Please check the phone number on your account to be sure it’s one you can be reached at on a Thursday evening. I start making calls about 7:30, and every week there is someone who has forgotten completely. I know I’d forget myself sometimes if I weren’t already there, so there’s no shame in that.

Try to enjoy the back-to-school madness this week. Even if you have no little ones yourself in school, the town certainly changes this week from the sleepy small town it’s been the last few months. 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

The Athens Farmers Market has returned to Saturday mornings at Bishop Park and Wednesday afternoons at Creature Comforts downtown. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market has returned, and you can catch the details on their website here: www.athenslandtrust.org/west-broad-farmers-market/. The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check www.facebook.com/comerfm for more information. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running Saturdays from 9 to noon. You can learn all about them here: www.washingtonfarmersmkt.com. 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. The city of Monroe has a downtown market on Saturdays, 8:30 to 12:30, and you can learn more here: www.monroedowntown.com/events/monroe-farmers-market. 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!
