Northeast Georgia Locally Grown:  Market is open for orders!


Good evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!

Go to the market >>
Fresh Produce
Baked Goods with Organic ingredients
Pastured Meats*
Cultured/fermented foods
Pastured Eggs
See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

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!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*

Champaign, OH:  Love...Designed By Flourish!


Love is in the air, market customers, and to make it all come alive, for your Valentine’s/Galentine’s/Celebration of Self Love/however you want to celebrate, we have got the florals for you!!

I am going to copy a note from the girls of Flourish, their market offerings are listed in the flower category, and, you will have market opening, this evening, until the usual market closing time of Tuesday, 8am!

BUT…you will not pick these flowers up at next Thursday’s pick up. You will pick these up, at a special time, Tuesday morning, on February 14th!! Just in time to shine the love wherever you want!!

I love that we are able to build another local bridge…to Hawaii!! I love this little market network! Please email me with any questions about the pick up!!

Just to recap…order as usual, with your market weekly orders. You will still pick up your orders, next Thursday, but will need to swing by the greenhouse, the following Tuesday, to pick up your florals!!

Here is a note from Flourish…

Floral by Flourish is busting through the frozen winter ground with bright roses and tropical flair for your Valentine’s Day!

You heard that right, we are kicking off our season starting Tuesday, February 14th! Rebekah makes up 1/2 of our Flourish team and has spent the last two years living in Hawaii, immersing herself in their culture and floral design techniques!

Freshly harvested from Hawaii, Rebekah is shipping over the most beautiful protea over-night to have fresh blooms for your tropical babe.

However, if your Valentine is a bit more classic, we of course have the simple roses!

We will be back with locally grown blooms for the spring into late summer but for now, we celebrate love, and hope you’ll join us! Pre-order your Valentine’s Day blooms for pick-up on Tuesday, 2/14!

And, with that, I am now opening the market for the week!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

The weather this week has definitely been lousy!

Everyone at RCM really appreciates your commitment to providing for and supporting local food markets! We love helping these amazing local products be available! The weather looks more promising for the upcoming week, so there should be no worries about picking up next Tuesday!

There are over 50 tasty choices available and they all go great with fresh breads from our bakers! Keep your freezer stocked with local cuts of meat in case of more yukky weather, get a great deal with a discounted squash box, and don’t forget to try some amazing aged cheese! Check RCM out every week to see what unique new products are available!

Champaign, OH:  Market Order Reminder AND Good News!!


Hello, I love you
Won’t you tell me your name?
(The Doors)

What a great song to kick off the month of February!!

And, a song to first remind you that if you ordered, this week, tonight is your pick up!! 4pm-6pm! If you need a pick up for tomorrow, 10am-12pm, or Saturday, 10am-4pm, please let me know!

Also…for the good news…Old Souls IS going to work with us, and allow us to still offer their Spring Mix, to the market!! Of course, we love all of the varieties that we have been so lucky to have, but are so very thankful that we will still have Spring Mix to offer. It may be in limited quantities, but we will see how things progress!! Also, it will no longer be delivered to the market, so your managers are figuring out the pick up time frames, but I am just so happy to announce this, and sending them a huge dose of love to agree to work with us!!

Ok…now, I will see each of you, who ordered, this evening!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
