Market News

This week marks the equinox and the first official day of Summer. And right on cue, we’ve got a week full of sunny skies with temps up in the 90s. Should be a wonderful weekend for AthFest, even if it’s so, so hot. I got my first quart of blueberries this week, and promptly turned them into a pie, mixed with some ALG rhubarb I still had in my fridge from a few weeks ago. Turned out tasty enough that I just had pie for dinner last night. I just might finish it off before bed.

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 has returned to Saturday mornings at Bishop Park and Wednesday afternoons at Creature Comforts downtown. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market has returned, and you can catch the details on their website here: The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check for more information. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running Saturdays from 9 to noon. You can learn all about them here: Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from noon to 4pm. The city of Monroe has a downtown market on Saturdays, 8:30 to 12:30, and you can learn more here: If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

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!

Love this time of year with all the delicious Squash! And it’s time to make Dill Pickles with all the Cucumbers available now. Last year I made some of my world famous Wickles (wicked hot Pickles) using Zucchini instead of Cucumbers. I couldn’t tell any difference at all. Try it!

They will be 5 for $7 in 3 flavors: Pork, Chicken, and Jalapeño & Cheese. To get an idea of how many she should prepare, please add a note to your order, or text me at 501-339-1039. If you do that, she will have your Tamales labeled for you. She will bring extras too. They freeze well so get some for several meals.
