Welcome to Northeast Georgia Locally Grown’s weblog. Mainly this is a collection of e-mails that we send out each week to kick off the market, but also tells the tale of our little market. The market was officially OPENED and our first orders taken on Monday, April 26th, 2010 with our pick-up on Wednesday, April 28th, 2010. Though small at the beginning our market has grown pretty well, Selling $25,000 by December 31, 2010, and nearly $40,000 by our anniversary on April 28th, 2011. The site will be opened for shopping Friday evening at 9:00pm and remain open for shopping until 9:00pm Monday evening.

All you Sweet Corn lovers out there, note: LoganBerry Heritage Farm is doing a final call for their late season Sweet Corn. Both Yellow and White Ears, with some bicolor ears strewn it, this is the sweetest corn we’ve grown! Because it grew so well later in the season and there are such large quantities, this is your opportunity to take advantage of quantity pricing! If you want to freeze some, pressure can some, or make soup or whatever, this is your time! By the dozens in the shucks or by the DOZEN unshucked, this is the LAST time this year it is available. Add it to their OKRA and PEAS for a flavorful and nutritious Soup Base for Winter use – Organic Rose with LoganBerry Heritage Farm
PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30pm!
Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!
