Market News

We’re back for our final market pick-up for 2020! Some of our producers are still on holiday so the listings are a bit lighter than usual, but we’ll be back to normal in no time.

Looking ahead to this Thursday, it’s going to be gross. We’ve done pick-ups in the rain, in total darkness, and in the cold, but we’ve never done all three at once. Be patient with us as we’re going to have to keep everything inside and bring them out one car at a time. It’s been nice to have everything out with me on the shelves, but that just can’t happen in the rain.

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 and the West Broad Farmers Market are both taking a few weeks off, but they’ll return soon. 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!

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!
