Are there membership fees?
To help us with our overhead costs, we ask that you pay an annual fee of $25 per household for one calendar year. You are welcome to try us for two orders before officially becoming a member.
How do I order?
By each Friday evening, a list of available products is sent to all of our registered customers by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week no later than Monday at midnight. Orders can be placed here on our website. Ordering through this web site is our preferred method as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes us to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products.
When do I pay?
We accept cash or checks when you pick up your order. Because we may have to adjust your total then (to account for unnanounced items you decide to purchase or items that were unexpectedly unavailable), we do not accept advance payment on the website.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
Fridays at 1:00 pm:
Zion Hill Baptist Church
Flowery Branch, GA
Fridays at 5:30pm:
Grace Episcopal Church
Why Support Locally Grown?
The best answer to this question is found by watching the short Story of Stuff video at www.storyofstuff.org.
But we’ll list a few reasons here also:
Enhance your local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Support the health and safety of your family: Our growers are all committed to chemical-free farming, meaning you can be sure you are not ingesting the harmful chemicals and additives in conventional foods and products.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
How can I sell through this market?
If you’ve already created a customer account here, simply go to Our Growers and click on ‘Join this Market’. This will add you to our system and our market managers will contact you with the next step. We do charge a one-time-only fee of $40 (which we can deduct from your sales) as well as 10% of your overall sales. Like at a traditional farmers’ market, you do get to set your own prices and list your items as you wish. Contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-906-3556 if you want more information.
