Siloam Springs, AR:  Online Market Closed this Week

Good morning everyone!

Due to the inclement weather and forecast of additional snow this week we have decided not to open the market this week. Our first concern is the safety of our customers, farmers, and vendors. Stay warm and safe this week and we’ll see you when things thaw out next week.

Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  Rainy Weeks

I hope you are all staying dry while we endure more cold and wet weather! I am working in the garden to prepare beds and get early spring planting done between the rains. I put a hundred onion starts in the ground and have carrots and peas up next to go in. Seed trays are looking lush under the grow lights. I’ve also loaded the incubator with chicken and duck eggs so we have lots going on behind the scenes!
Don’t forget to check out Clean Mountain Mama’s wonderful cleaning products. I’ve used the clothes detergent, softener, dryer ball spray, and detergent pods – they are all Farmher Chef Amy recommended!
Have a great week!

Champaign, OH:  Market Update From The Weather Desk

So, I told you I would update all customers as to this week’s incoming weather, and market pick up.

With the amount of snow that is coming in, today through tomorrow, the second wave coming in on Thursday, and the cold temps, with high winds, your market managers have decided that we are not running a market pick up, this week!

We want to keep vendors, and customers safe, and not ask vendors to be on unsafe roads to deliver products, and we don’t want customers out, trying to get through roads for pick up, AND, I don’t want to try the roads to deliver all orders!

Here is what I would like to see…I am not closing out the market, so the orders that you did place, just keep them on! And, if you want to place orders, please do so! I am going to just keep the market open, all week, into next Tuesday morning, closing it, then, with a market pick up on Thursday, February 25th, as usual!!

I was going to wait, but then we decided that in case you do still need to get to the grocery to stock up, we are giving you that chance, this morning!!

Maybe this is a bit too proactive in some eyes, but in my heart, it is not.

Also…I had two answers, at the same time, for the trivia answer!!

The song was…Laughter In The Rain by Neil Sedaka!

The winners are:

Linda Locke
William OHair

Thank you!!! I will miss your smiling faces, this week, but keep up with your orders, and I will see you, next week!!

Champaign, OH:  And, Then, The Snow...

Happy Monday, and welcome to the incoming snowy day!!

Again…we are monitoring the weather for the next couple of days, as well as the rumored second round coming our way on Thursday (please, no….) So, stay tuned for updates on how we feel the best way to handle this week’s market pick up. I won’t leave you hanging, and will have an update, later…

In the meantime…what about that trivia question, yesterday?? So many attempts at the answer but no winning song, yet.

So, while you are staring out your windows, I’m throwing a clue…

One of the lyrics is…After a while we run under a tree…

There you go. The song that my 6th grade crush sang at the talent show.

Remember…to win the Cosmic trivia, you must be an ordering market customer!!

Stay tuned for news from the market weather desk…

Market News

It’s shaping up to be another cold, wet week it looks like. I know we need to get the rain in the ground, and I’ve got plenty of inside work to get done, so that’s all ok. I’ll just have to wait a while to get out in my garden. Could be worse, though… I have friends across the country who have lots of ice on things (and no power for the next few days) or feet of snow. Their gardens are going to have to sit dormant for a lot longer than mine.

I might be working inside, but our growers are out in the much, tending to spring crops, starting seeds for summer crops, and harvesting what they can for our markets. I’ve been in their shoes (mud boots?) and I can tell you, it’s no fun. I’m so grateful for their efforts!

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 market’s home on Tallassee Road!

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

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: The Athens Farmers Market aims both taking a few weeks off, but they’ll return soon. The West Broad Farmers Market is back, 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 The Culinary Kitchen of Athens has started a socially distanced winter market, Saturdays from 11am to 2pm at Hendershots on Prince. And of course Collective Harvest is going strong over at

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:  No Market This Week

Because of the inclement weather and frigid temperatures, we’ve decided to close the market for this week. We do have some vendors with items such as eggs, so if you want something, contact the individual grower to see if you can set up a time and place to meet.

Thank you for your business and we hope we’ll be able to be back next week.
