Are there membership fees?
No. We will gladly accept donations to cover administrative costs, but we are doing this to not only serve you but to have a winter market for our goods.
How do I order?
Sign in for an account, under “Your Account”.
We will email you when the market is open for ordering, and you can look at what is available and choose what you would like. Customers must place their order for the week no later than 8 pm Monday.
To order, go to “The Market”. Select how many of what you want. Be sure to click the “Place Order” button when your order is complete. 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?
We have now made the move to an online payment system! You can pay directly online with your credit card.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
From Wednesdays from 3 to 6, customers can pick-up their produce at the Lake Placid Skate Shop
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 ‘Join this Market’. This will add you to our system and our market managers will contact you with the next step. We deduct 13% from your sales to cover expenses. Like at a traditional farmers’ market, you do get to set your own prices and list your items as you wish.
