Siloam Springs, AR:  Online Market is Open!

There are so many great holiday baked goods available right now! Be sure to check them all out.

Seasonal produce, beef, pork, and poultry are all available as well as eggs, pecans, jams, and more.

A gift certificate to the Farmers Market would make a great gift, especially if you want to introduce a friend to the convenience of shopping online for locally grown and made foods and handcrafted items.

Have a great week and see you Saturday!

McColloms Market:  Reminder - Market Open Until Tomorrow Morning

Hi All:

Just a reminder to place your order today if you want to participate in this month’s market. I’ll be closing the market first thing tomorrow. Pick up will be Friday afternoon from 4:30 onward.

Thanks so much.


Champaign, OH:  A Very Merry Local Christmas!

Have you ever thought about baked goods as Christmas gifts, hostess gifts, or just a general happy holiday item to have on hand?

I’m not just self promoting my own baking of artisan breads and rolls, but this market has amazing bakers, and all doing something a bit different!

For Cosmic Charlie, my breads all freeze beautifully, so you can feel good about maybe pairing one of my breads, with say, Champaign Berry Farm, or The Shire Farm, or S&S Naturals jam varieties, for a fun gift, and just let the person know they can even freeze the bread for enjoying later!

We have also added a new baker, McClain’s Munchies, to fill a niche that I felt would fit nicely with the market!

And…what about pies from Ruthie, or baked goods from Cabin Creek, holiday scones from S & S, Baklava from ChrisMis Farm, and of course, the holiday line up would not be complete without treats from GaGa’s! Also, something to look forward to in February…the return of The One-Eyed Cookie Lab…

Gluten free? No problem…we have Madison’s Gluten Free Baking!

You could also pair breads and treats with one of Ehlre Bird’s lovely wooden boards, for a serving idea gift!

Market News

Holiday markets are starting to pop up around town, and Flagpole has released their market roundup here: You’ve already demonstrated your commitment to buy some of your food from local farmers. Giving gifts made from local artisans is just as important, and can be even more rewarding!

If you missed my big announcement that ALG is closing down for good on December 23, you can read all about it here: I really appreciate all the kind words y’all have said in emails and in person. It’s been an amazing twenty years, and I’ll miss you all after these three weeks!

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 market’s home on Tallassee Road!

We are still getting new customers every week (and we love seeing new faces!) so for all of you you can find a detailed run-down of how Thursdays go on our website here:

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: The Athens Farmers Market is holding their Saturday market once again in Bishop Park and Wednesdays at Creature Comforts.They’re still operating under pandemic rules, so you’ll want to read up on all the changes on their website, The West Broad Farmers Market is back, holding a drive through market just like us (and using my software too, so it’ll be nice and familiar). You can join them at The Saturday market in Comer has also returned. They’re small, but sometimes an early Saturday drive to Comer is just what the soul needs. And of course Collective Harvest is going strong over at

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!
