The big ALG news this week is Doug was finally able to return home from Alaska, and Friday he brought a load of fish over to the freezer he keeps at my house. It’s just a partial first delivery, so it’s likely we’ll sell out of the current stock very quickly. He will be returning soon with more, so if you miss out on this first batch, more is on the way!
We’re still working out the details of our holiday market schedule, but right now it looks like we’ll be closed the week of Christmas and open again on the week of New Year’s. Both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve fall on Thursdays this year. I’ll let you know for certain soon, but right now that’s how things look.
It’ll be cold and dark again for order pickups on Thursday. It gets super dark out there on Tallassee, but I’ve been buying some rechargeable lights so you can more easily see us and the driveway. Each week I’ve been bringing more, and I have another shipment arriving tomorrow. Just a few weeks more, and the days will start getting longer again!
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: https://athens.locallygrown.net/faq#7
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 brand new home on Tallassee Road!
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: https://www.thecomerian.com/online-ordering. The Athens Farmers Market is holding their Saturday market once again in Bishop Park. It’s not anything like it was before, so you’ll want to read up on all the changes on their website, http://athensfarmersmarket.net. The West Broad Farmers Market is back too, 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 https://wbfm.locallygrown.net. And of course Collective Harvest is going strong over at https://www.collectiveharvestathens.com.
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!
