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:  The 59th Street Bridge Song


…lookin’ for fun, and feelin’ groovy…
(Simon & Garfunkel)

Happy Thursday evening, lovely little local market customers!!

If you ordered, this past week, and picked up, tonight, thank you for braving those crazy winds and rain!! Once again, just brutal weather!! But, it was fun to see everyone, have a quick chat, and get you on the road to your destinations!

Such a groovy feeling, each week. Greeting you all before you head home, or out, or wherever life takes you. I just love being a part of your day.

You know what else is groovy? Did you notice that I picked a tune, this evening, using the word bridge? Well, plus, I LOVE this song…but, anyway, groovy, bridge…I’m leading up to announcing a brand new collab for the market, with a new vendor, and new product.

This market is long standing in our little community, has built an excellent reputation, and boast a huge, steady, loyal customer base. Groovy!

You know that I am constantly keen to new ideas, new vendors, and even branching out, when needed, to bridge another local community to our little local market, if I feel strongly about the product, vendor, their practices, and if we have a void to fill in the market. A Groovy Bridge!

So, in a new collab with a new community, I reached out to a former customer, who lived in our area for a short time, during the pandemic. Your managers got to know her, her background, and even caught an old documentary about her…she just really stuck with me, even after she moved down to the Athens area. She knew local, and she knew and appreciated what this little market is all about.

So, right before Christmas, I took a chance and reached out to her to see if she was still down in the Athens/Pomeroy area, and she is!! And, she is still with the connection I was trying to connect with. She paired me up with another girl, within their farm/company, and they were SUPER excited to become part of our market!! SUPER GROOVY BRIDGE!

This market needs cheese. Good cheese. Cheese that I trust the farm, the practices, and while they are a bit away from us, we set up a great shipping gig with them. And, if you know the Athens area, you know they are just the coolest when it comes to local, food, and helping to fuel others with the same interests and visions.

So…in this long blog, I am announcing my excitement at adding, Snowville Creamery to the market for their white cheddar cheese, and their white cheddar cheese crisps!! (I am still trying to decide how to get their yogurt on the market) but for now…CHEESE!! And, it is soooo good!!!

Also, Snowville will be doing a write up for you, soon, but just so you know…all of their cheeses are made with only the A2 milk from their cows. That means, it is easier on your digestive system!!

And, your other market manager will also have their cheese and cheese crisps in the retail shop, so you can stop in to purchase if you forget to order from the market!

SO…see, it’s groovy, and it’s bridging local with another local!!! With amazing products!! You can also go to their website to read all about them!!

Local helping local…it’s a groovy thing…

Just give me a bit to get their products listed on the market page, and then begin your ordering!!!

XOXO,
Pam
