Senoia Locally Grown & Locally Made Market is comprised of local farms and food artisans located throughout the state of Georgia. All of our members and participants are dedicated to the enrichment of the land and continually expanding our communities knowledge of what natural food is all about.
Why Support Locally Grown
Enhance our local economy- by purchasing local produce and other products you are providing stability to your local economy through locally owned and operated businesses.
Save Natural Resources
By purchasing local products, precious valuable resources are saved. Your support reduces the use of transportation of products, reducing the carbon footprint in our environment. You as the consumer also minimize the use and waste of packaging materials.
Provide Learning Opportunities
By supporting Locally Grown, member growers are given larger opportunities to educate the public on sustainable agriculture, and natural growing techniques and practices. Most importantly we would like to provide expanded education to our youth generation. So few truly know where their food comes from. It is time to bring them back to nature’s roots!
Supporting a Lost Way of Life
Small farms have dramatically decreased as we have crossed in to the new century. Supporting Locally Grown is a small step in the right direction of preserving a lost and honest art.
In order to continually provide you with the best market possible, we ask that you pay a small annual fee of $25 per household for one calendar year. You are welcome to have a free trial of two orders before you pay the membership. On your third order the website will automatically add the membership fee to your order.
Unlike other 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 lists the products and goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
Placing An Order
Customers must place their order between 10am Sunday and 10pm Tuesday each week while the online ordering system is open. Just select The Market tab at the top of the page to shop the available items from our growers. To confirm that your order was completed, please check your email for a confirmation invoice. If you do not receive the email confirmation, you will need to place your order again. Give the system at least 30 minutes to generate a confirmation.
Growers receive their orders that same night and harvest on Thursdays.
Picking Up Orders
Orders are picked-up at The Georgia Mercantile Company located at 60 Broad Street, Senoia, GA 30276. We’re open Tuesday through Saturday 10am to 6pm and Sunday 1pm to 5pm. Pick up for the online market is Thursday after 4pm and anytime through Sunday. You are more than welcome and we encourage you to stop by anytime to see what we are about, and how our operation works! Each week some of our growers may bring extra items they harvested to sell to visitors, but the best selection and variety is on the online market. Signing up is easy, and your first two orders are free of the membership charge!
