Gwinnett Locally Grown Market Status


Dear Market Customer,

Thank you so much for your support. We know the market has been sporadic this year. Due to low orders and our other commitments at Rancho Alegre Farm the market will be closed until further notice. We feel this is the best step until we can give it the focus it needs and the community would be able to support it.

We are focusing first on some amazing workshops that will include topics such as homesteading, cooking, gardening and more with the hopes of building relationships with workshop attendees that will support the market.

If you would like to be notified about our workshops please sign up for our weekly newsletter here – http://ranchoalegrefarm.com/learn/workshops/

If you feel you have a great topic you and are interested in teaching a workshop feel free to fill out our wokshop instructor form here – http://ranchoalegrefarm.com/learn/workshops/workshop-instructor-form/

As always thank you for your support.

Important GLG Market Announcement


Happy Holidays to our Market Customers,

We appreciate your recent orders from the GLG Marketplace. We were very excited to reopen our market in November due to interest from many previous buyers and new visitors to the farm.

We know it’s a crazy busy time for everyone and our orders have been very low since we reopened. This means it is not financially viable for our farmers or ourselves to keep the market open at this time so we think it would be best to close and reopen in the new year and will let you know when we do!

We are looking for an employee to help us with running the market when we reopen and help market the launch for it. If you or someone you know would be interested we’d love to hear from you. Please email us at grow@ranchoalegrefarm.com

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Ranch Alegre Farm Family and The Gwinnett Locally Grown Farmers and Staff

Market is Open for Orders thru Monday


We truly wish everyone a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

Due to the holidays, we will keep the market open until Monday, November 28th to give you extra time to get your orders in.
Any orders placed will not be able to include produce boxes for pick up on the 1st. If you would like to order a produce box at this time it will be available for pick up on December 8th’s pickup.

Have a safe and happy Holiday,

The Rancho Alegre Market Staff

Market Is Open for Orders for Pick up Wed b4 Thxgiving


The market is open for orders.
h2. p=. Please be aware that pick up this week is Wednesday from 4-7 due to the Thanksgiving Holiday!

We are very excited for the changes in the market. Last week we announced the new produce box service but need a minimum of 30 boxes to be able to deliver and we promise you’ll be sorry if you miss out on this amazing organic produce. Order one today and try it out! If we don’t reach our minimum we’ll notify you before charging your order so don’t worry about that.

We’ve also added some new staff to our team and we are in the process of adding some new vendors to bring you more products to choose from.

We hope you are as excited as we are and please feel free to email us with items you’d like us to try and source for the market to make it better for you and everyone else.

Thanks so much,
The Rancho Alegre Market Team

MARKET CLOSES AT NOON AND WON'T BE OPEN NEXT WEEK!


Good morning everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Just a quick reminder/announcement, the market will close today at fpm so make sure you get your orders in NOW! Also, the market will be closed next week (8/16) so be sure to order enough goodies to get you by until we get back!

Bill just informed me he had his chicken processed recently, which means that his inventory is super fresh so make sure to check that out.

I will see you all tomorrow between 4-pm for pick up, and if for whatever reason you can't make it within that window please e-mail me at grow@ranchoalegrefarm.com I may be able to accommodate the situation.

Thanks everyone, and have a great week!

Good morning everyone!

Hope your week is going well thus far. 

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN, CLICK HERE TO PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW!

 A few weeks ago, Andrea from Rapid Gourmet came to the market and gifted me a couple of her homemade goodies. I was able to try her Couscous Cranberry Almond Mix, it was DELICIOUS to say the least and truly lived up to the company's name.. very fast and truly gourmet! As a vegetarian, I ate mine as a meal all on its own but it will go very well with any type of protein! I also tried her Jambalaya Mix, super hearty and so fast! Both of these products have a little kick, so if you like a little spice I really recommend you give it a try! Her Pumpkin Orange Spice jam is like Autumn in your mouth! Haha if like me you can't wait until fall season gets here… give this jam a go!

As always, tons of fresh veggies, milk (cheese making anyone?!), pastured chicken and pork (bacon!) along with tons of other goodies so come by the market and check it out!

Remember, I'll see you all on Tuesday at Rancho Alegre Farm for pick up (4-7pm). Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments, I'll be happy to help!

 

SEE YOU ALL ON TUESDAY!
