New opening date for MLG

Hi everyone!
I had to make a change for our opening date due to the Christmas Parade in Monroe. After I announced the opening date, I found out that the parade will be staged right in front of our pick up location and there will be no access to it.
So, I am changing the first ordering window to open on Saturday, 12/4 at 12 pm and will close on Tuesday, 12/7 at 5pm. The first pick up date will be Thursday, 12/9 from 4pm-6pm at
The Old Memorial Libaray
201 Bold Springs Avenue
Monroe GA 30655.

Keep an eye out for the ordering email that will go out on Saturday to let you know that the market is open and ready for your orders.

Monroe Locally Grown is Open!

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Monroe Locally Grown is open and ready for your orders! After a 3 week break, we hope you are ready for some fresh, local items again!

Some new items:

Milk, cheese, and ice cream from Rock House Creamery. These items were only available for 1 market before we closed. I tried some of each and they were all delicious. Let me just say Butter Walnut ice cream!!! My family was not happy when the milk was gone and the market was not open to purchase more.

CSA Boxes-This item also only had a 1 market appearance. The boxes were filled with beautiful, fresh offerings and a lot of them! The items offered for this week has been updated on the market, so check it out.

New Grow Your Own Microgreen kits are available this week.

Keep your eye on the baked goods section. There will be new items being added.

Our Pie and Ice Cream giveaway is still going until Wednesday at 1:00. We will announce the winner on Instagram Wednesday afternoon at pick up. Hop on Instagram @monroelocallygrown and keep tagging your friends for more entries.

Have a great weekend! Hope to see you at pick up Wednesday.

Monroe Locally Grown Updates

Hi Everyone!

It has been a while since I sent out one of these emails. We have been closed for 2 weeks now and I am going to close for this week also. We had a possible Covid-19 exposure recently so my whole family and extended family were self quarantining. Everything was fine, all negative test results. The risk for us was low, but just knowing that there was a possible exposure, we wanted to be extra careful. So, while quarantining, I needed to cancel appointments that I will be making up this week.

One of the appointments I am very excited about, I am finally getting my Cottage Foods License inspection done this week! Once the license is approved, I will be able to bring some freshly milled whole wheat products to the market. I LOVE baked goods,so I am changing up some of my favorite recipes to incorporate healthy whole grains. Hopefully I will be sharing these with you soon!

We will also be doing a Giveaway on Instagram. For every friend that you tag you will receive an entry for a “Pie and Ice Cream” Giveaway. The pie will be baked by our fabulous Deer Creek Farm and the ice cream will be from Rock House Creamery. The ice cream is delicious! So jump on Instagram and start tagging! It should be up this evening.

I look forward to opening for orders Saturday, July 25 and pick up on Wednesday, July 29. I will be posting product updates on Instagram and Facebook.
See you next week! Have a great one!

Monroe Locally Grown will be closed for July 8 pick up

Hi everyone!

I have decided to close the market for this upcoming week, July 8, due to the higher Covid-19 cases.

If all settles down, we will reopen for orders and pick up on July 15.

During the next week or so, you can help support our farmers and producers by sharing our social media posts and our website with your friends and contacts so we can build our following. To keep our market going, so we can bring fresh, local products to Walton County throughout the year, we need to get the word out that we are open and increase customer interest in our market. Your shares are very much appreciated!

Wishing everyone a wonderful, healthy, and safe holiday weekend! See you on the 15th!
