What can I buy?
With Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms and artisans that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, milled products, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
Why Support Locally Grown?
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.
Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
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.
What happens if I order after the cut off date?
As a general guideline if you miss the cutoff date and order you have the following options.
1. your order will be held over to the next week delivery date.
2. your order MAY be able to be packed for a different pickup location.
3. we can arrange for you to come pick it up at our main locally grown location.
4. we can deliver your order to you for an additional fee.
5. you can cancel your order and have the credit applied to a future order.
I want to to copy from one category to another within this market.
Each product now has a “Copy Code” displayed over on the right hand side (only the product’s grower and the managers can see it). To duplicate a product, copy that code and then go to the category you want to paste it into, click on the “New Product” icon to get the New Product form, and enter that code into the new blank right at the top of the form.For example, to copy a tomato listing into our live plants category, so they can sell transplants of the varieties they grow for themselves.
