Are there membership fees?
To help us provide educational programs, and to help us with our overhead costs, we ask that you pay an annual fee of $25 per household per year. You are welcome to try us for two orders before officially becoming members.
Membership fee will be charged automatically with your third order and then annually thereafter.
Will I have to buy vegetables I don't want?
Unlike some co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email reminds you to come browse the items on this website before you place your order.
How do I order?
Each Monday evening, a list of available products is sent to all of our registered customers by e-mail. Customers must sign in and place their order for the week no later than Thursday at 8:00 p.m. Orders can be placed here on our website. Ordering through this web site is our preferred method as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes us to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products.
When do I pay?
We accept cash or checks when you pick up your order. Because we may have to adjust your total then (to account for unnanounced items you decide to purchase or items that were unexpectedly unavailable), we do not currently accept advance payment on the website.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
Saturday, by appointment (please indicate when you would like to pick up when you place your order) customers can pick-up their produce at *8748 Guava St, Yalaha, FL 34797
Payment is still expected for produce that is ordered but not picked up.
Why Support Locally Grown?
Enhance your local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
How can I sell through this market?
If you’ve already created a customer account here, simply go to Our Growers and click on ‘If you would like to sell through this market, pleas tell us about yourself and a market manager will contact you.’. This will add you to our system and our market managers will contact you with the next step. We do charge a fee of 10% of your overall sales. Like at a traditional farmers’ market, you do get to set your own prices and list your items as you wish. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more information.
