Market News

Seems like every year about this time, the whole town suddenly realizes that summer is almost over and the new school year is almost upon us. I’ve got two girls in school, but even if I didn’t this community is based far more on the academic year than the calendar one. Even though we might have the hottest few days of the summer ahead of us, it’s time to start thinking about cool season school uniforms, waiting outside for the busses, and trying to keep packed lunches hot.

The new school year brings new people to town, and new ALG customers. Welcome, all of you! We’ve already seen quite a few new faces these past few weeks. If you ever have any questions about how our market operates, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email or talk with me during Thursday pickups. The new year also changes existing household routines, so it’s easy to forget it’s Thursday and you’ve got an order waiting for you at Ben’s Bikes. I do make phone calls to everyone who hasn’t arrived by 7:30, and every week catch at least one person who has completely forgotten. I also get a lot of home phone answering machines, though, so now’s a good time to make sure you’ve got a mobile number on your account if you have one. You can change your contact info and several other account details on the Your Account page of the website.

One nice thing about living so close to the mountains is when things get really unbearably hot down here, we can just head an hour up the road to somewhere a little bit cooler. There’s another great excuse to head up to Clayton, GA this Saturday, when the Clayton Farmers Market and the NEGA Food Bank hosts their annual garlic festival. We’re blessed here with a huge array of garlic varieties offered by our growers, and if you can catch Kim Janosik of Sundance Farm without a line at his Saturday market booth, he can talk to you about all their nuances for a wonderfully long time. There’s so much variety of flavor, color, texture, heat, and sweetness, so much more than you’d guess by looking at all the white identical heads of garlic at the grocery stores and on cooking shows. The sweetness of garlic can especially catch people by surprise. Last year, I was asked to judge the festival’s garlic pie contest, and I was excited to see how people adapted, say, a chocolate cream pie to include garlic. Well, they were all savory pies, and while tasty, not at all what I was hoping for. I’ve always believed you should be the change you want to see in the world, so this year I declined to judge and am instead entering a sweet dessert pie. The festival should be a lot of fun, and includes tastings, garlic-inspired foods, the pie contest, kid’s activities, music, and more. It runs from 9 to noon on the square in Clayton, and I’m looking forward to being there.

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 and Wednesday afternoons downtown at Creature Comforts. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is up and running, Saturdays from 9am to 1pm, and you can find out more here: The Oconee County Farms Market is open on Saturdays in Watkinsville.

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!

Market News


The dog days are here ! It is hot and humid out there- no fun to be outside unless a creek, river, or lake is involved! Hopefully we’ll get some rain and cooler temps this coming week, and that will bring some relief to the plants and the farmers!

We’ve got a great selection this week! Summers bounty is upon us! Still lots of tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, as well as a nice selection beans and peas. The berries may be over, but we’ve got those deliciously cooling fruits of high summer- watermelon!

We know you have many options this time of year- thank you for supporting Fresh Harvest!

Stay cool out there, and thanks again for your support!

See you Wednesday!
John and Tallahassee

Cumberland, TN:  Sunday July 23.2017

Cumberland Sustainable Farmers’ Market is now open for this week’s ordering cycle. Happy Shopping!!

Greener Acres Farm:  Tomatoes, Blackberries, Pickling Cukes, and More!!

Tomatoes, Blackberries, Pickling Cukes, and More!!

So much more this week is tantalize your tastebuds


Tomatoes are finally starting to develop their full color and flavor. They are in limited quantities this week but will definitely be increasing in quantity in the following weeks.

This week we have mixed cherry tomatoes, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye, Ananas Noire (Black Pineapple), Ruffled Paste, Striped Roman Paste, Pink and Yellow Beefsteak, Yellow Brandywine, Paul Robeson, and small red tomatoes. Many of the heirlooms are an astounding 1 1/2-2 pounds each.


Some many peppers… The usual EXTRA LARGE green peppers and Flavorburst we have been carrying, but now we have added the medium purple sweet peppers, sweet banana peppers, mild hot banana peppers, jalapeno and purple chili peppers.

Green Beans!!

New this week, freshly picked green beans, purple green beans and yellow wax beans.
Purple green beans are an amazingly beautiful royal purple color when picked, but magically change color to a vivid green when cooked. They also have higher levels of anti-oxidants.


This week we have wild harvested blackberries. Smaller than our cultivated blackberries (which should be ready in the next one to two weeks) but still quite tasty.

And garden huckleberries, ever heard of them?? They look similar to blueberries, but are very tart. NOT TO BE EATEN RAW! This beautiful berries must be cooked with sugar, but make amazing pies and jams.

Pickling Cucumbers

We unfortunately do not have any long slicing cucumbers this week, but do have pickling cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, and some tasty little gems known as Mexican Sour Gherkins or Cucamelons.

Independence,VA:  Market closes Monday night!

Good afternoon!

I hope everyone is able to beat the heat this weekend! The good news is, there are a lot of vegetables available on our market this week! How about ordering produce for a nice cold gazpacho!
