ALG Market Open for December 19
Winter officially starts this week, and so the days will start getting longer once again. There are plenty of holidays these next few weeks, and I hope whichever ones you celebrate at as joyful as they can be. We are giving the growers a bit of a holiday and will be closed next week so if there’s anything you need for your holiday meals next week, be sure to order it for pickup this Thursday.
We will be back the following week for our first pickup of 2020 on January 2. Those of you who are travelling for holidays, safe travels and we’ll see you when you return!
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 on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
Other Area Farmers Markets
The Athens Farmers Market is open on Saturdays at Bishop Park. 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/.

If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.
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!
