Market News

Good morning!
We are open and ready for your weekly orders!

Ferris Family Farm and Sweet Pea will be away this week but we look forward to their return!

Rocky Glade Farm will be on an every-other-week schedule until sometime in March. This week is an off week.

E & B Coffee has delicious, organic coffees to help keep you warm this winter!

Botanical Harmony Farm has soaps and skin care to protect and help aid in healing winter skin.

Keep your gut healthy with kraut, kimchi and more from Short Mountain Cultures and Valentine Family Farm

Due to learning to grow in colder temps and less sun, Benjamin’s Organic Sprouts is taking one more week to have all the sprouts ready! So sorry for the delay and inconvenience!

There is still plenty of wonderful produce to be had from Frontier Family Farm. Michael has Brussels sprouts, lettuce, and incredible spincach!

Please be sure to check out all that our market has to offer! Some of the BEST locally grown, made or sourced goods around! I am constantly amazed at how much our vendors care about health and living a more sustainable lifestyle while trying to earn a living from selling the very things that help aid that. It can be a difficult balance and I hope it shows in the quality and care that our vendors provide. Thank you for supporting the market and small businesses!

Don’t forget that we can deliver to your door! Select delivery and add to your cart just as you would any product check that your address is correct in the system, set a cooler out and we will deliver during the normal pickup hours on Wednesday.

See you Wednesday!

Three Sisters Farm:  This market is preparing to open!


This market was added to the LocallyGrown.net system on Sunday January 08, 2017 09:10 AM. It should be open for business soon!

Dothan,Alabama:  Growing and Going . . .


Special Announcement


Friday is a special day for us at Market at Dothan. For a number of weeks we have been in contact with the Daleville Chamber of Commerce ironing out an idea from one of our brilliant vendors: A Daleville Pickup Location!

This Friday at 11:30, Daleville is hosting a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for our new pickup location at the corner of 134 and Daleville Avenue. Wendy Robbins will be delivering Market orders to that location on Fridays between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.

We realize that coming to our regular (perfect!) Market location at Dothan Nurseries doesn’t work for everybody and there are many in the Wiregrass who would LOVE to be able to participate more but can’t because of work, distance, etc. This is one way to make the Market more accessible to our friends and colleagues in Daleville, Level Plains, Ft. Rucker and Enterprise. Many of you have been making the drive to Dothan as you are able and this is one thing we can do to make things easier for YOU.

So thank you, all of you who have been loyal supporters of the Market. A huge thank you to Nancy at the Daleville Chamber of Commerce who has had such a huge part in making this happen, and a huge thank you to Wendy Robbins (picture below) who thought of this and is making it possible. You’re all the BEST!


If you are picking up at Dothan Nurseries there is nothing special you need to do. Your order will be bagged and ready for your arrival as usual.

If you need to pick up your order in Daleville, use the words, “DALEVILLE PLEASE” in the comments section of your order. That will alert us that your completed order needs to travel to meet you.

And that’s all there is to it!

Meat
See all products

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30pm!

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!

NEWS AND NOTES

Whew! What a cold market day we had last week! Thank you to all our farmers and customers who arrived so promptly! Michael and I were able to wrap up market and leave premises before 5 pm, much to our great relief. We will look forward to spending time with everyone and chatting about new products, etc, on a warmer day! Hopefully this week will be a lot different, weather-wise.



Weaver Farms hamburger is normally $6.50 a pound, but this week they will do a special: 5 pounds for $30!



Catherine from Flying S Farms writes:
We will have farm fresh eggs, sour dough plain, 7-grain and wheat breads available in full or half loaf size as well as rolls, great for grilled cheese sandwiches or peanut butter jelly sandwiches. Rolls make great sliders or mini buns. Your toast deserves the best with some of our award winning jams. Enjoy a treat with our Friendship breads, slice for a cake type dessert or top with fruit topping or your favorite ice cream. Dip in egg mix for French type toast.



If the weather is as nice as the forecast now says, Dogwood Valley Greenhouse will have some beautiful hanging basket houseplants, Aloe vera and Rex begonias at market on Thursday. And maybe even some flowering Christmas cacti. Pick up a couple of plants to beautify your home and to help raise the inside humidity this winter.



We will be glad to deliver your order to you, at home or a location of your choice, on Friday afternoons for a small fee. Order delivery just like any other product.





(L to R) Several scents of Goat Milk Soap and Deodorant from Solace Farm, 1 lb Butter from the Altamont Mennonites, Brussels Sprouts from Frontier Family Farm, Eco-Soy Candle from Botanical Harmony.
