Welcome to the Market
EAST GEORGIA PRODUCE LOCALLY GROWN
locally grown consists of a group of family owned farms in and around Emanuel County. Each farmer or grower provides all natural, locally grown and fresh foods for sale, to the Swainsboro area.
HOW IT WORKS
Each week, our farmers and growers list their products available on our website.
Depending on whats in season, the list will include a variety of vegetables, fruits, meats, legumes, bread, dairy, fresh flowers, eggs, herbs, honey, and artisan goods.
Everything is fresh, local and naturally-grown.
Unlike co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff, with Locally Grown you order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from growers and farmers you’ll come to know as neighbors and friends.
Locally Grown is based on a nationally-recognized model program in Athens, GA. The Locally Grown network strives to find new and innovative ways to preserve greenspace, protect natural resources, support local economies, provide meaningful work and return to a more self-sufficient way of life.
We are open every week throughout the year. We take orders from noon on Sundays until 8:00pm on Wednesdays. Pick up is on Fridays from 4:00 to 5:00pm.
Enjoy browsing through the wonders that our growers provide!
Be sure you understand who we are and how we work before you create an account and place an order! For more information, contact Matthew DeMatteo at 706-410-4570.
PICKING UP ORDERS
Pick up and pay for your order in Swainsboro on Fridays, anytime between 4:00pm until 5:00pm, at Crossroads Cafe, located at Main and Main in downtown Swainsboro.
BECOME ONE OF OUR GROWERS
Swainsboro Locally Grown is committed to the idea that a community is healthiest when it feeds itself.
Rather than relying on highly-processed, corn-based boxed foods or veggies shipped from overseas, we are dedicated to supporting our neighboring farmers and growers.
We also encourage local, backyard gardeners to sell their surplus of veggies and fruits through our market. If you follow sustainable, all-natural practices in your home garden, please consider joining us!
