There are banana, jalapeño, Serrano, and bell peppers, a variety of cherry tomatoes and some larger slicing tomatoes, basil, edemame beans, garlic, jams.. I’m probably forgetting something but you get the idea. Feel free to stop in and thank you in advance!

Martin's Farmstand:  Melons and sweet corn

We are all back home and in full swing at the farmstand. Last week most of the family was gone to a camp over at Mooers, New York that we are involved in. Mendy and I were part of the kitchen team cooking 400-500 meals each day. It was fun and refreshing in a healthy way but also a lot of work with about 12 hours a day in the kitchen. I came home needing to rest from my vacation. Today the stand is so packed with good food that it is a challenge to fit everything into the display space. Fall spinach is available by the bushel. The first celery is ready. We have a huge selection of watermelons including yellow, crimsom sweet, and seedless. I also have a bin of big watermelon from Henry. His stand out head and shoulders above the other excellant melons we have. last evening I cut a big cantaloupe that was perfect in its texture, flavor and sweetness. The later cantaloupes, which is now, tend to be better than early melons. Now is the time to enjoy one as seasons move on fast. All our melons are gauranteed- if you ever get a disappointing melon throw it out (or bring it back) and tell us. You can get another melon or your money back or any other produce of simular value. The onion crop is excellant this year. Thursday we pulled about 100 crates of sweet onions off of three rows. There are 28 beds of onions total in my patch. The later storage onions are not ready yet. Field tomatoes are starting to ripen so supply is a lot better. Canning tomatoes should be abundant in about 2 weeks with the peak in early- mid September. We have lots of corn today including by the bag. Daniel

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 after you finish the checkout process, then your order is NOT complete. Head back to the market page, 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.

Once you place an order, be on the lookout for the order reminder email on Wednesday with further pickup and payment notes. Thanks for your support!
