Athens Locally Grown Closed This Week!
Hello! This is just a reminder that Athens Locally Grown is taking the week off so our growers and you can enjoy our Independence Day with family and community.
You don’t need to go without locally grown food, though! Assert your independence from the industrial food system by shopping at our area’s other farmers markets.The Athens Farmers Market is open on Saturdays at Bishop Park, and Wednesday evenings downtown at Creature Comforts. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is back as well, Saturdays from 9 to 1, and you can watch for weekly news here: http://www.athenslandtrust.org/west-broad-farmers-market/. The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check www.facebook.com/comerfm for more information. The Oconee County farmers market is held every Saturday 8 to noon in downtown Watkinsville. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running on Saturdays from 9 to 2pm. You can learn all about them here: www.washingtonfarmersmkt.com Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from 11 to 3pm.
Many of the ALG vendors sell at multiple markets, so you can find plenty of good food at these and other area markets while we take the week off. Have a happy Fourth!
