See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

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!*

McColloms Market:  January Market Open


Hi All:

I apologize if this is a duplication but I want to make sure you get it. I didn’t get my usual copy so I’m sending it again.

I have opened the Market for January. Pick up will be at my house at 112 Shepard Ave. next Friday, January 20th starting at 4:30 pm.

I also want to acknowledge the passing of Nancy Moriarty whose baked goods have been a mainstay of this Market for years. She had a wonderful heart and cared deeply for our community, her family, including her beloved cats, and about providing high quality baked goods for her customers. And yes, she was a character.

I miss her greatly and suspect that many of you do as well.

Until next Friday. Take care in the meantime.

Thanks.

Champaign, OH:  Crazy Train


Hello, and welcome back to the little local online market!!

This evening was the first market pick up of the year, and I think crazy train sums it all up!!

We had high winds, sheets of rain, a washed out greenhouse that washed away customer names, making it a guessing game of sorts, no lettuce, and your manager who just blew in from vacation just in time to jump on the crazy train with the rest of you.

So….fingers crossed for a more relaxed pick up, next week!

I am opening the market, and hoping that you all have a lovely evening!

XOXO,
Pam

Connie's Cornucopia:  We have Buffalo & Lamb


We have added Carrell Farms, Inc. – Monroe, GA – David & Shalley Carrell. They will be providing our family and friends with honest, nutrient dense food. They are not afraid to venture outside of the commodity structure of agriculture to produce a product free of antibiotics, drugs, and GMO’s. Their unique meats are raised right; living a species appropriate lifestyle, eating a species appropriate diet, and harvested humanely. They have water buffalo, alpaca, and lamb are 100% grassfed and finished. Carrell Farms grazes its animals on a forage chain of warm and cool season grasses, legumes, and forbs.

We are starting out with a few items but in 2-3 weeks we should have the rest of their items in stock. I do plan on getting with them and post some videos or information educating us on how best to cook their meats.

Thanks
Connie

Wedge Oak Farm:  Weblog Entry


Hello WOF shopper,
We are offering online preorders as requested by many.

Please take a look and see if there is something you want to have on your home menu to start the year . We have cuts, whole ducks and chicken, beef cut, and pork available too.
The layer ducks are still on hiatus as they have not liked the lack of items to forage in their daily wanderings around the farm. The cold took care of many of the favorite treats they find in the pastures. We will get them listed online when the duck hens pick back up.
The chickens are still laying relatively well. Don’t forget to get your* chicken eggs*…

Sausages- all the breakfast sausage you like. Poultry, medium pork, extra sage pork and hot pork breakfast.
Sausage Links abound as well, and our bacon cheddar is available again!

We have sliced our delicious smoked bacon, and added another batch of ground pork.

We are also excited to announce that our retail store at the farm will be open for business starting Monday, January 16th from 10-2 and then again on Friday from 10-6!

Check out the online market.
We will close it Friday morning at 10 AM. Take a look and see if there is something that you would like awaiting you Saturday at Richland Park.
See you there!
New Market HRS- 10-12
See you there.
