A few of you have asked about how to find deals on locally grown produce. One of my favorite sites for finding local produce is a co-op called Locally Grown. Here’s how to find one in your area:
- First go HERE and look at the map to find your closest Locally Grown Co-Op. There are divisions all over the US. (CLICK HERE for the Athens, GA Locally Grown)
- Once you find yours, then click on The Market. You’ll find everything from meats, veggies, eggs, and fruits, to homemade pies, breads and more.
- From here, you place your order and pick it up at the designated time and location in your city. For the Athens area, you can pickup your orders from 4:30 until 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays at Ben’s Bikes, located at the corner of Pope & Broad Streets near downtown (670 W. Broad Street).
We’ve placed many orders through the Athens Locally Grown and have been very pleased with the goodies we receive. If you have any questions, just read the FAQ section on their site. It helps out a bunch!
