Are there membership fees?
There are no membership fees for customers.
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 lists the produce, milled products, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
How do I order?
Each Sunday evening, a list of available products is sent to all of our registered customers by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week no later than Tuesday at 5:00 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?
You can pay with cash, check, or credit/debit card when you pick up your order. You can also pay online prior to pick up.
We will pay the growers for you on your behalf. If you fail to come pick up your items, you will still be expected to pay the amount due. There will be one total for all items ordered. This also allows you to make only one payment, even if you are ordering from multiple growers.
*The growers harvest items for you, so if you fail to come pick up your items, you will still be expected to pay for your order. We can not hold or deliver your items.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
From 10:00 am through 12:00 pm on the Saturday following your order, customers can pick-up their produce on Court Street in downtown Monroe (where the farmers market is usually set 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, please 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 one-time-only fee of $35 once approved as a vendor. 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.
