Martin's Farmstand:  Fresh Greens


The farmstand is open this afternoon from noon till 5 pm. We just harvested a tub each of fresh garlic scallions, turnip greens from the young turnips that over wintered, and wildcrafted dandelion greens. Garrison is bringing some micro greens that he grew. Also there is the normal selection of potatoes, carrots, beets, cabbage, etc. Before you laugh at someone selling dandelion greens remember that not everyone has a good spot to harvest them or maybe one is just not able or inclined to harvest there own. I personally eat quite a few dandelion greens in salads or sandwiches. It is a good spring tonic and I like them better than turnip greens. Lettuce is better but it is not ready for harvest yet.

Pastured Eggs
Naturally Fermented Foods
Baked Goods with Organic Ingredients
See All Products

Market is open Fridays at 9 p.m. through 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. in Clayton, Clarkesville, or Gainesville.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION after you finish the checkout process, then your order is NOT complete. Head back to the market page, 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.

Once you place an order, be on the lookout for the order reminder email on Wednesday with further pickup and payment notes. Thanks for your support!
