Availability for May 22
The availability list is really filling out nicely this week. There are several new items, as well as the return of old favorites such as new potatoes, bunched leeks, and early summer onions. It’s also the week we head over to Split Creek and Milky Way dairies, so all told there’re close to 500 items available.
The growers would like to thank everyone who came out to see them at the Saturday market at Bishop Park. The official count is 2600 shoppers, and many of them arrived only to find that everything had been sold out hours earlier (by 10am most everything was gone). They never saw a day like that at their old location, so it came as a bit of a surprise. They’ll be making adjustments as they move forward, but that’s only to be expected. We’re still adjusting to our growth here at Athens Locally Grown, and we’re into our seventh year.
One last thing – don’t forget our first “Farmer for a Day” event coming up on Saturday May 31st. The event is free, but we request that you make reservations due to limited space. You’ll be able to make reservations with your order – take a look in the “Event Reservations” category.
Thanks again for all of your support! We’ll see you on Thursday from 4:30 to 8pm at Gosford Wine.
