This week at GLG


The Market is now OPEN until Monday at noon!! Click here to order now!

Hello Everyone!!

HUGE thank you to everyone who came out this week to pick up your fresh, locally grown goodies. Your support is extremely appreciated not only by us here at Rancho Alegre Farm but by our local vendors as well. So thank you for choosing Gwinnett Locally Grown, and thank you for allowing us to become part of your table.

 I was so happy to finally meet some of you in person! I am new to this area so meeting new, and like-minded people is always a pleasure for me. I am very eager to dive deeper and start building a closer bond with you guys and maybe forming and growing a strong community driven by the love of good food that's grown and produced the way our ancestors used to do it, the way it's supposed to be done!

 

I am a huge fan of greens, they are a  powerhouse when it comes to nutrition. Dark leafy greens are a great source of vitamin A, C, E, and K, as well as a great souce of calcium and antioxidants such as carotinoids-which help protect cells and play roles in blocking the early stages of cancer. Getting your fill of greens every day is a lot easier than you think. They are great in sandwiches, salads, sauteed as side dishes, and even blended in smoothies or juiced.

Check out our available produce, you'll find a great variety of greens. GET YOUR VITAMINS ON!

Hello everyone! Welcome to Gwinnett Locally Grown! We have been absent for a little while, but now we are back and very excited to be able to provide you with some delicious and locally grown food.

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Luisa Martinez and I am the new market manager here at GLG. I am a new Georgia resident, I moved here from New Jersey about 8 months ago. I came across the Rancho Alegre Farm website way before I even moved to Gwinnett, while researching the area and hoping to find a farmer's market near my soon to be neighborhood. Fast forwad to now, not only did a find a market but I am now also the manager! This is quite a change for me, and I am very excited to be able to share my passion for good food via this platform with you all.

Eating local means eating seasonal, and eating seasonal is great for a few reasons. First, it is cheaper to buy foods that are in season, they will also taste better and will be more nutrient dense.

Please browse through the market, see the great variety of fruits and vegetables being offered this week!

Warm up with some fresh coffee from the market!

JavaGenesis Coffee Roasting is a small batch craft roaster of specialty coffee. bags of whole bean and ground coffee. We source our coffee from the major growing regions around the world. All of our coffee will be roasted within 24-48 hours of the market to ensure our product is at peak freshness when it is delivered to you. Choose the 2 ounce sample size or a full pound bag and ‘Discover the Fresh Roast Difference’.

In addition to producing awesome coffee, promoting responsible environmental and/or social stewardship is important to us. Because Georgia does not have the climate needed to grow coffee, we use 3 importers to source our green coffee. We select coffee from our importers that have been farmed using sustainable practices and when possible we buy shade grown and/or fair trade organic coffees. We roast on a Diedrich IR2.5 roaster which uses infrared burners, not open flame, atmospheric burners. IR burners produce substantially lower emissions than atmospheric burners. We are proud to roast our coffee on a ‘greener’ roaster. In addition we give all of our organic waste material (coffee chaff, coffee grounds, etc) to a local gardener to use in her garden.

The Market is open Thursday at 9am – Monday at noon.
After Monday at noon, ordering is disabled until Thursday morning.
