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

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.

The market will remain open for your orders till Tuesday at 10 pm.

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

Farm News of the Week

Frontier Family Farm has added Small Baskets of Day-neutral Strawberries to the market. “What are day-neutral strawberries?” you ask. They are modern types developed to bear continuously all summer and into the fall. They also have firmer and larger fruit than June-bearing strawberries.

Strawberries in the Hydroponic Channels, and French Green Beans.

Native Fare has added Concord Grapes to their “Hale’s Best” Cantalopes, to round out our fruit offerings this week. Get them now! Fruit won’t last long on the market.

Concord Grapes and Spaghetti Winter Squash

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added Fresh-Cut Lemon Balm to their listings of fresh-cut herbs.

(Clockwise from upper left): Lemon Balm, Lavender, Rosemary, Grapefruit Mint.

Sow’s Ear Piggery products will be in vacation mode this week, but expect to return next week.

More new farmers are considering joining our market, if they can expect enough sales to help pay their transportation costs.

And if you haven’t ordered from Manchester Locally Grown for a while, please check out our wide variety of offerings this week.

Grower Notes


This week we’re keeping it short and sweet! It’s August, it’s HOT, the summer vegetables are on their way out and the fall vegetables are coming up. Plus your Market Manager has a ton of cabinets to stain and finish today. And I’m glad to say that several years of Pinterest inspiration are paying off!

Anyone venture to guess the origin of this recycled piece?

Breathe Deep! Fall is coming Yesterday we had a pow-wow with JD at Dothan Nurseries brainstorming ideas for our upcoming Fall Farmer’s Market. We hope to have something for everybody this time around and welcome your ideas. Announcements coming soon!

New & Relisted Products

  • Tiger Sawgill Mushrooms from Grier Acres
  • BULK Ranch Dressing Mix from Richter Farms
  • Asian Pears from Grier Acres


We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

AVALON FARMS: Well our first “real” crop of garlic has sold out! Last year’s crop was very pitiful and small, but I learned some things and this year’s was great. Wish I had planted more! Have already ordered seed garlic that will be planted in September.

Onions are still storing very well. That’s the area of improvement I focused on this year. We lost so many to spoilage last year. But they won’t keep forever, so enjoy them now.

For those that attended my heat table workshop last Spring, you may recognize this setup. I removed the heating parts and moved it all inside in the a/c. I needed cooler temperatures to start cool weather crops like spinach.  Plus this way they are protected from hungry critters and all the mold and fungus spores floating around. I lost half my fall transplants last year to bugs and fungus because they were outside. More lessons learned!

BAIN HOME GARDENS: Hello Marketeers!
    How goes it? Back to school season is upon us. Have your little ones started back to school? Our youngest is in 6th grade this year and our oldest will be beginning his freshman year of college on the 20th. I really wonder just where the time went?! Before Jarod, gets all tied up with the rollercoaster of college life, our goal is to finalize our early fall plantings. We had a very productive fall season last year and this year we want to kick it up a notch! Planning, planning, and more planning coupled with lots of hard work – ah that should get us off to a good start.

So far we have cleared and tilled only one of our smaller beds. There are yet two larger areas not to mention the growing boxes that currently are demanding attention. We have not a moment to waste! Till next week!

DANNY’S GREENS: Danny’s commitment to utmost quality has forced the tough decision to suspend sales for a few weeks till the current weather conditions ease up. His greens are tender and most vulnerable so he’s papmering them till they’re ready to take off again.

GRIER ACRES: We are excited to offer you all some of our baking pears. Jeannie and her mom have put up some canned pears and Jeannie has also made some cobblers with the pears. We have also enjoyed our hot banana peppers and will be offering these to you all as well. They are great in salad or to cook with to add some heat and texture to foods. We also have been getting a lot of the yellow pear tomatoes, we enjoy cutting these in half to add to a salad. We also have a tabasco plant with peppers that are starting to turn.

Jeannie was so excited as she got a new composter. She loves the box kind and moves it around as she fills it with green and brown compost in a layered fashion in our garden. We have one on our field where we have okra growing-we have clemson spineless and emerald okra growing. Hopefully we can list some okra. We eat it roasted in the oven or grill. When Harry has time he likes to make a gumbo with the okra. c It really is the secret to gumbo. As you get ready for cooler weather and smoking meats, we will have a variety of smoking woods.

HAWKINS HOMESTEAD: Hello Market Friends! I really enjoyed meeting a lot of you yesterday at the Market pick up.Since I work Full-time it’s not often that I get a day off on Friday, but yesterday was a good day to be off. It was very nice putting faces with the names I see from week to week. We even got to hear some customer feedback which we welcome. We hope you guys know that you can always reach out to us. Either through messenger on Facebook, phone, or even email. Our email address is We would love to hear from you!

This week on the Market enjoy our bone broth kit, basil pesto, fresh basil varieties, salsa fresh, and pear jams. As always we thank you and hope you have a good week.

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.

Fried Green Tomatoes

4 large green tomatoes
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 quart vegetable oil for frying


Slice tomatoes 1/2 inch thick. Discard the ends.
Whisk eggs and milk together in a medium-size bowl. Scoop flour onto a plate. Mix cornmeal, bread crumbs and salt and pepper on another plate. Dip tomatoes into flour to coat. Then dip the tomatoes into milk and egg mixture. Dredge in breadcrumbs to completely coat.
In a large skillet, pour vegetable oil (enough so that there is 1/2 inch of oil in the pan) and heat over a medium heat. Place tomatoes into the frying pan in batches of 4 or 5, depending on the size of your skillet. Do not crowd the tomatoes, they should not touch each other. When the tomatoes are browned, flip and fry them on the other side. Drain them on paper towels.
