Northeast Georgia Locally Grown:  Weblog Entry


Good evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!

Go to the market >>
Fresh Vegetables
Clean Meats
Baked Goods with Organic ingredients
Gluten Free goodies
Pastured Eggs
See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

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!*

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE:
Last market of the year: December 22nd

Champaign, OH:  Wonderful Christmastime


The moon is right
The spirit’s up
We’re here tonight
And that’s enough
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
(Paul McCartney)

Happy Thursday, and happy month of December, and happy celebration time as we head into the fun of the holiday season!

As the Christmas spirit grows, so does my love of Christmas tunes! And, I hope that you all loved your Christmas playlists that I tucked into your orders, as well as your candy canes!

It was just so wonderful to see all of you, this evening, and being able to spend time with each of you, chatting the pick up time away. I love catching up with you, sharing a laugh, and sending you on your way.

It was simply a wonderful evening…

And, just a note to remember…the market will be closing, as usual, the two weeks of Christmas and New Year.

So, your last market pick up of December will be on Thursday, December 16! We will have the first market pick up of 2022 on January 6!

Get those orders and gift selections in, these next two markets!!

As always, I love giving the vendors those two weeks to regroup, and enjoy the holiday time, I like to give customers a bit of time off, and your market manager is looking forward to having a lovely holiday break!

So, the market reopens, this evening, and we are so excited to take your orders!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Martin's Farmstand:  The farmstand is open today!


The farm stand is open today (Thursday December 2nd) from noon till 5 pm. From now till December 23rd we will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from noon till 5 pm. After the new year we plan to be open Saturday afternoons from noon till 5 pm through out the rest of the winter.
There are still leeks, brussel sprouts, onions, garlic, carrots, beets, kale and lots more. A new item is peeled garlic. It is available both freshly peeled (intermittent) and also in the freezer. We also have lots of our homegrown frozen blueberries, strawberries and black raspberries.
A number of years ago I bought a little garlic peeler from China. It is very slow and does a poor job most of the time with only about half of the cloves actually peeled. The other day I was looking at that somewhat frustrating machine and a brainstorm came for a way to make another peeler that would much simpler and hopefully work better. My son Phillip has some metal working skills and he built what I had in mind and we tried it out. The result is a very simple machine that is much faster with close to a 100% peel rate. The product is clean and nice. Yesterday afternoon I peeled a blue crate full (about 50 lbs. of garlic) in one hour. If you buy the frozen peeled garlic it keeps for long time. The unfrozen peeled garlic has a fairly short storage time of perhaps a few days or a week. To use just reach in the bag and get out as many cloves as desired and place of a plate on the countertop for a few minutes to soften (do not finish defrosting) and then it can be crushed or cut as you wish and used.
