It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like OPEN HOUSE! We are excited to announce that Parlita’s Heritage Herbals will be joining us at Open House on Dec. 3. Parlita’s is a fairly new business started by an old friend, foraging partner and fellow old soul, Sonja Goldsmith of Ozark. Her interest in and amazing knowledge of using nature’s gifts medicinally has expanded into a growing business as more and more people opt for nature before pharmaceuticals. All products originate from responsibly foraged wild plants. I’ve caught Sonja foraging at Landmark Park, (with permission of course!) we’ve foraged at my farm and even did an expedition when I found a thymol rich plant last year.

All Parlita’s products are hand crafted from hand picked wild botanical sources. Shown are various tinctures in the making. They also make specialty teas that include commercially sourced ingredients.

While Market at Dothan is still probably as small as when started in 2010, we are, to our knowledge, the OLDEST business in the Wiregrass to offer locally sourced sustainable foods and products. And we’re still the BEST. Our grower list looks like a living library of wisdom about many topics related to food, farming and natural living, and our Friday morning pickups are a delightful time of learning, sharing and growing with anyone willing to sit a spell. It’s one of the reasons we love Open House, because there are more of us gathered to interact with more of you! We are super excited to include great local businesses like Parlita’s in our special events.


MT MORIAH FARMS: I can’t believe it is already November! Most of our pregnant does are starting to show and it is a very happy sight to see. It won’t be too long before they start waddling around. Growing up on the old farm we had 11 rotational paddocks for the animals to graze. Our current farm is much smaller so Angus has over seeded the pastures with rye. It has come up so well and is extremely soft. I can’t wait to put the goats out on it! They are currently just on hay. This weather has been wonderful for working outdoors.


I’m very excited to share that we have a new bar of soap to add to our collection! It has been in the works for quite some time and it is finally on the curing racks. I loved the way it turned out. We are calling it “Restoration Rosemary’’. The highlights that make this bar so special is Beeswax, french green clay, and of course rosemary essential oil. It will be added online in two weeks! Stay tuned and in the meantime have a wonderful Fall season.

Order TODAY, Nov 5 – Nov 8 for pickup Nov 11
Order Nov 12 – Nov 15 for pickup Nov 18
More info to come!
Order Dec 3 – Dec 6 for pickup Dec 9
Order Dec 10 – Dec 13 for pickup Dec 16



We are happy to have completed planting 2000 strawberries this week in the “big garden” that has not had chemical fertilizers on it for . . . as long as we can remember! That piece of ground has enjoyed an extended sabbatical and scruffy as it is, we’re excited to have it back in service. Spring will be sweet up here next year!

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

Martin's Farmstand:  Winter Hours

We plan to be open over the winter with the following schedule
Now till Nov 23, we are open normal summer hours. Closed Thanksgiving day. From Dec 1st till Dec 23 we are open Thursday- Saturday 12:30- 5 PM. After New Year till spring we plan to be open Saturday afternoons 12:30- 5 PM (Call ahead if weather is severe)
We finished the carrot harvest this week and are finishing the last row of beets today. We have an abundant crop of both carrots and beets. I am also stockpiling leaves to mulch the strawberries. There is still the turnips, daikon and horse radish to pull along with lots of brussel sprouts, leeks, scallions and various greens left that will remain in the field till the weather gets threatening. Come and get it, the stand is still well stocked with all of the above and much more such as Dad’s organic apples, onions, garlic, potatoes, vinegar, honey and bulk foods. Fill your body with lots of greens and hearty fall foods so that it is strong and healthy as we move into winter. Daniel

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*
