Caldwell County Farmers Market:  Week 19-CCFM Online Ordering


Good morning!

Online ordering is now open. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Locally Grown STT:  Customer Survey before re-start!


Dear STT Locally Grown customer,

Thank you so much for joining us for our first season. We were happy that us growers and producers were able to connect with you through this new platform.

We are getting ready to re-open again and are working to improve your overall market experience.

This season we are looking to move to a more central location. I know many really enjoyed the pick up spot but many also did not. We are aiming to grow the market and make it more accessible to the whole island this season. We’ll keep you posted on that new location once all the logistics are confirmed. But so far I can tell you what we are looking for in a new pick up spot:
- more central (mid-island) for customers
- not a crowded location to maintain social distancing
- a clear easy path for a drive-thru style pick up for you where you can easily drive in and out without having to turn around or get stuck in traffic or a parking lot
- a safe place where we can store our coolers so the market coordinators don’t have to transport all the market gear every week
- and yes Shade!

Where ever we pick, I ask you be gentle on us for the move as we aim to reach more people this season.

Please take a moment to fill out our customer survey. Your feedback is important to us as we aim to provide you with another great market season!

Athens Locally Grown:  ALG Market Open for September 10

Market News

Happy Labor Day, everyone! I’ve known many hard working laborers in my day, but probably none that work harder than our farmers. Please send a few extra thanks their way next time you’re able.

I only have one announcement for you this week before I let you get right to ordering: The Veggie Patch let me know last week that the farm has closed, and last week was their last week at market. The farm’s owner recently retired from his long-time medical career and decided a second career as a fun-time farmer wasn’t what he wanted. We’ll miss them!

We are also still getting new customers every week (and we love seeing new masked faces!) so 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!
