Champaign, OH:  Open The Door


Open the door and come on in
I’m so glad to see you, my friend
You’re like a rainbow, coming around the bend…
(Song For Judith-Judy Collins)

Happy Monday, lovely market customers! It looks like we may get a snowy farewell to the month of November, today! We are one day from jumping into December!

The song that I chose, today, seemed to be the perfect, upbeat, positive song to leave this month. Also, as the this market has become such an old friend, new friend, to all of us, I hope it always brings you that rainbow to the week. The sunshine to your soul.

On Saturday, we celebrated Shop Small/Shop Local, and you all flooded us with orders. Today is Cyber Monday…also fitting for our market. So, if you are cyber shopping, today, go ahead and throw us your cyber orders on this Monday!

Have a love filled day…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Market News

Hello again! I hope you all had a pleasant week, able to spend time with your household and having time to reflect on the things to be thankful for (even while fretting over the many things out there to fret over). Looking ahead on the calendar, I’ve realized both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve are on Thursday this year. I know we’ll be taking the week off on the 24th, and I’ll consult with the growers to see if they’ll want to deliver on New Year’s Eve. The last time that happened on a Thursday we closed, but it’s not like we have parties to go to this year…

We’ve managed to stay free of frost well past the usual dates, at least here in town proper. It was great to have fresh beans and peppers on my holiday table last week! The cold is going to catch up to us in a big way, though, this week. If you’ve got plants outside, get them ready for nighttime temps in the 20s in a couple days. Many of our growers have some greenhouses and other means of extending the season, but all the “easy” work is now behind them.

It’ll be cold and dark for order pickups on Thursday. It gets super dark out there on Tallassee, but I’ve been buying some rechargeable lights so you can more easily see us and the driveway. I hope that helps!

We are still getting new customers every week (and we love seeing new masked faces!) so for all of you here’s a quick run-down on how Thursdays go:

  • Don’t arrive at the beginning of your pickup window if you’ve got that flexibility. We fill the bags alphabetically (because it’s easier on us that way), but your arrival time or last name has no bearing on what items you get. The growers fill orders based solely on the time you placed your order, so that’s all been long decided by Thursday. Take your time getting there and that’ll naturally spread things out a bit. Flatten the curve, if you will.
  • I’m bad with faces as it is, and masks make it even harder to recognize you and even hear you when you give your name. Many of you had papers with your name written in big letters we could read through the window, and that is wonderful. If you think to do that same, it’ll make things even smoother.
  • The pickup loop does have a fair bit of room, but we don’t want you backing up into Tallassee. If you arrive faster than we can deliver orders, we may ask you to pull ahead into the loop and circle around. That may mean that some people who arrived after you may get their food before you, but as I said above, that doesn’t affect at all what items you get when things run short.
  • We’ve still got three pickup windows, and it’s totally ok if you come later than the slot you chose. If you come early, odds are high that we haven’t filled your bags yet and we may ask you to come back. Tallassee is a pretty drive, and I recommend taking it to the county line and back, just for the scenery.
  • We’re not accepting in-person payments unless absolutely necessary. We’ll have a drop box for checks or labelled envelopes of cash, but we greatly prefer Venmo payments to @athenslocallygrown or online payments through a card tied to your account. Venmo is free, and card payments have a 3% processing fee.
  • We can not accept any recycling just yet, though that may change once we get settled.
  • We cannot take your own bags or bins out of your car and fill them up
  • If you’d like to go through your items before you leave to make sure you’ve got everything, or that we didn’t mix up people’s items, feel free to pull into the lot and have a look.

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 at our brand new home on Tallassee Road!

Other Area Farmers Markets

If ALG doesn’t have everything you need, please support our growers at the other markets that are now back up and running, or at their own locations. The Comerian takes online orders for Saturday pickup at the bakery here: https://www.thecomerian.com/online-ordering. The Athens Farmers Market is holding their Saturday market once again in Bishop Park. It’s not anything like it was before, so you’ll want to read up on all the changes on their website, http://athensfarmersmarket.net. The West Broad Farmers Market is back too, holding a drive through market just like us (and using my software too, so it’ll be nice and familiar). You can join them at https://wbfm.locallygrown.net. And of course Collective Harvest is going strong over at https://www.collectiveharvestathens.com.

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!

Foothills Market:  We're Back!


After our unexpected brush with Covid last week, Foothills Market is back for your shopping convenience. The person who had closest contact with the person who had tested positive will complete quarantine on Thursday, so we feel confident that there are no lingering concerns about the safety of the market.

As we get our first really cold weather of the season, our offerings will shift into “winter” mode. We have storage crops such as sweet potatoes, turnips, and Silver Edge Squash, as well as a variety of fresh greens – arugula, collards, turnip greens, and Chinese cabbage. If you’re looking for something to sweeten these cold days, we have baked goods, honey, sorghum, and spiced tea mix,

Browse the market between now and Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. Be sure to click the button to “Place order.” We’ll have your order ready for pickup between 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Chamber of Commerce building.

Eat something fresh this week!

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful day, going into a golden sunset!

Just a note, as I said I would update you…

I am putting Cosmic Charlie and Hippie and the Farmer products back on the market!

After much consideration, with the spikes in Covid, and even with plans to drive instead of fly to Florida, I just don’t feel safe in doing so!

So, you are stuck with me!

Sending all the love vibes on this Sunday evening!
