Manchester Locally Grown market

Our pickup location is across the street from the Manchester City Schools administration building, at

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

If you don’t see a map, click on the address link.

Good morning!

Welcome to this week’s offerings from your online farmers’ market. Everything you see on our website is the “cream of the crop” from local farmers, the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! When you place an order with our farms, you know you are supporting your friends and neighbors, most located within 30 miles of Manchester, Tennessee.

Please note that the market will be open at 11 AM today (Saturday) for orders. It will close at noon on Tuesday. You may pick up your order between 4:00 and 5:30 on Wednesday, this week only, because of Thanksgiving on Thursday, our normal pickup day. Next week we will return to the normal schedule.

Please look around at various categories, since there may be some new things added to the market after I send out this message.

Please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”

We will also have pink Christmas cacti and several colors of African violets in bloom for Christmas. If you want one of these, please reserve it now so I don’t sell it elsewhere. Just drop me an email to let me know if you want one or more of the potted plants.

Important Ordering and Pickup Information

Ordering will be open until TUESDAY at NOON, and your order will be available for pickup on WEDNESDAY between 4:00 and 5:30 at the pavilion across from Manchester City Schools administration building, 215 East Fort Street, Manchester.

We offer a great variety of local farm products, and our items will be in your hands in time to plan for the weekend.

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!
