Buford pick up location is moving!

New pick up location is 285 E. Moreno St. Buford 30518 First pick up at new location will be May 23rd. This new location is a little over 1 mile from our current location.

I know it’s short notice but I just found out yesterday that KCO Audio will have room for us at their new warehouse location. I didn’t want to say anything until I knew for sure and was working on plan B and C if it didn’t’ work out.

So grateful we have help for the move on Saturday! Now just need prayers for a smooth transition to our new home!

Market is closing for 1 week- No Pick up May 30th

Market is closing for 1 week- May 30th

As all of you know I rarely close the market but it’s time for a quick break. The market will be shut down May 30th. Please consider doubling up on items you will need that week. For produce boxes from Natures Garden Express- Pam has graciously offered her carport next her garage apartment as a drop off location. This is for Nature’s Garden Express boxes only. This temporary location is only for the May 30th pick up. Thanks again Pam!! Her address is 5957 Shadburn Ferry Rd., Buford 30518. I’ll send out reminders and directions once we get closer.

New! AtlantaFresh Milk & Greek Yogurt

Thank you to Shelly, a fellow co-op member, that asked if we can carry AtlantaFresh milk and yogurt on the co-op market! I'm very pleased to welcome Ron Marks of AtlantaFresh Artisan Creamery to our family of growers and producers! They will offer their 100% grassfed, non-GMO, no antibiotics, low temp pasteurized milk and small batch Greek yogurt on the market starting this week. For milk, they can only sell to us in half gallons because we are not a foodservice organization. So if you order a gallon you will get 2 half gallons.
