Fayetteville Farmers' Market:  Online Orders NOW OPEN

Orders are open from now until 6am Wed morning. Easy drive by pick up in the outdoor lot at the Fayetteville library!

The horrendously cold and snowy weather in December had a huge impact on our growers and our egg producers. There are products available—but it will take awhile for things to recover.

PICKUP TIME THURSDAY Jan 12 is 4:30-5:30. Note: if you know that you cannot make it by 5:30 pm, but you want to order this week, just reply to this email or text 479-935-5111 and we will work with you on a plan.

Vegies this week include: local garlic, chard, parsley, kale, carrots, spinach,radishes.

MUSHROOMS available!

All of our bakers have GREAT variety right now—including sweet treats, cookies, pastries, breads, granola and other goodies.

Fresh tamales (meat and vegie) are delivered hot and fresh on Thursday just before pickup. If you don’t feel like cooking on Thursday this is a great option. They can be eaten after pickup or will also keep fine in your frig until you are ready for them.

SEARCHING TIP: On large categories such as baked goods, meats or vegetables, click on the category to get a drop down of specific items in that category.

HOW TO CHECK ITEMS FROM A PARTICULAR SELLER? Scroll down on left side until you see “show specific growers”. If all the boxes are checked, you can click on “reverse all” then click the boxes on or off of those sellers you want to see. Then click “show specific growers” again.

Just in case you haven’t heard, there is a BIG college football game tomorrow night out in Los Angeles. The University of Georgia Bulldogs are taking on the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs for the National Championship. While I am usually a Georgia Tech fan (as I married a Tech man), I am cheering for the Dawgs and their chance for a repeat National Championship, and here’s why:

The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service empowers farmers, ranchers, and communities of all sizes to meet the challenges they face, adapt to changing technology, improve nutrition and food safety, prepare for and respond to emergencies, and protect our environment. UGA is the sponsor of Georgia 4-H. I, along with all of my brothers and sisters, grew up in the Pike County 4-H program. I am ever thankful for all that 4-H and Cooperative Extension invested in me during my youth. Truly my 4-H experiences shaped me into who I am today. As a grateful alumnae, I say GO DAWGS! Sic ’em! Woof, woof, woof!

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. We’ll see you at the Market.

Russellville Community Market


Dothan, Alabama:  Jan 7, 2023 M@D Newsletter - Glad to be Back!

Market at Dothan is open to accept orders. Orders close Tuesday at 5pm
We use the word “Sustainable” over “Organic”.
You can grow organic without being sustainable, but you cannot be sustainable without utilizing organic practices.
Thank you for your continued support of our local farmers. We count it a privilege to serve you!
Our Website:
Order prepayment link:



As promised we are re-opening M@D with this newsletter and are looking forward to serving both you and our growers this year. Our commitment to bring you FRESH, LOCAL, SUSTAINABLE, and YEAR ROUND food has not wavered and one of the reasons for this newsletter is to keep you informed about what’s going on with the Market, with our growers, and with healthy food info in general.

That being said, Market listings will probably be fewer for the next couple of months at least. Many of our growers, your Market Manager included, lost crops, trees, etc. because of the extreme cold snap that happened prior to Christmas.

For that reason we will be open bi-weekly starting today for the next couple of months. This will allow all our growers extra time to put into recovery in hopes of returning strong in the spring.

Here’s what the next couple of months look like:

Order TODAY, Jan. 7 – Jan 10 for pickup Friday, Jan 13
Order Jan. 21 – Jan 24 for pickup Friday, Jan 27
Order Feb 4 – Feb 7 for pickup Friday, Feb 10
Order Feb 18 – Feb 21 for pickup Friday, Feb 24

Our growers have been notified that they are welcome to trade with you at the Market Shed on the weeks M@D is not open and we will notify you if/when any of them plan to take advantage of that.

To be brutally honest, we will just have to play it by ear beyond the end of February. With any luck we’ll know by the 24th when to expect the late winter and spring crops to start coming in and will schedule accordingly. One of the wonderful things about this region is that we can pretty much grow year-round. Freezes like we experienced last month only happen about once every ten years and while they can be difficult, even dangerous to deal with, they do bring some benefit to the environment. If JD of Dothan Nurseries is right we can expect many of our spring blooming fruit trees to bust out this year and . . . LESS BUGS!


AVALON FARMS: The stress and heartache of the last year has left me feeling old and tired. (Serious medical issues with several family members. One child’s rough divorce. Other assorted craziness I won’t go into.) Many of last year’s farm plans fell to the wayside as just too much to deal with. BUT, it is the start of a new year. Time to break out those abandoned plans from last year, dust ‘em off and update for this year. I’m moving forward. No sense in wallowing in past failure. 

Currently sitting at my work table surrounded by seed catalogs, lists of lists and empty coffee cups. (This farm definitely runs on coffee!) I love reading the seed catalogs. It’s like getting the old Sears Christmas Toy catalog. I have to see it all. Several times. With highlighter and pen in hand I actually read the descriptions. Marking good or bad points of different varieties. Eventually highlighting the specific ones I want to order. Sort of like planning a vacation, all the things you want to see and do. These are all the things I want to grow, harvest and share with you.

When this is sent out this evening, I’ll be on the front porch just sitting and watching the world. There may be another “panther” in the tree or not. But there will be beauty and peace. 



HORTONS’S FARM: I’ve thought for a long time that few things hold the cycle of life and death close like a farm. Whether it’s animals or plants, the work to create and sustain life inevitably ends in death in one form or another. The Christmas freeze was another reminder of this. One thing – a severe cold snap – destroyed in some cases, things that took years to grow. In our case citrus trees. All the lights and wrappings just weren’t enough. And yet, surprisingly, there’s still life!

010723 berry plants edited

I really thought Mr. Horton had got wrong intel when he told me that strawberry crowns were good down to 10 degrees and didn’t cover them, but as you can see, he was RIGHT! I guess the plants that product this sweet delectable fruit are pretty tough! Looking forward to listing them in the spring. This field has never had chemical fertilizer on it so they will be exempt from any “dirty dozen foods” list.

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!

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!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*
