Opening Bell: Beef, Eggs, Pork, Mushrooms!


Happy New Year!
Thanks to all the dedicated Members and Growers who safely made it to the market Friday! I was encouraged that over half of those picking up on Friday said how much they appreciated that we didn’t cancel. And a few even said that when they saw the snow that morning, their first thought was, “Will CLG be open?” Well, that was my first thought too!

Reminder: We will NOT have market pickup on Friday, January 27th.

You may have noticed a NEW ITEM: Goat Cheese from White River Creamery. It’s not available just yet, but soon. Stay tuned for the official announcement in a few weeks.

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

Check out 440 wonderful items listed right now. See you on Friday!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

The market is now OPEN for orders. Click here to start shopping:

Opening Bell: NEW GROWER! Greens, Purple Hull Peas, Bratwurst!


Happy New Year!
We are starting 2017 off with a NEW GROWER! Many of you were lucky enough to meet Elizabeth Calvert from Arkavalley Farm as she was sampling out her delicious Sourdough Bread at Friday’s market. Each week she will be baking about a dozen loaves for CLG. Enjoy!

Several of you asked about spinach. Eddie at Kellogg Valley Farm told me he will have some in a couple of weeks. He had plenty but the protective covering blew off on one of those 14 degree nights. :-(

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

Good evening.
Market is OPEN! By now all the presents have been opened and all the tummies filled. The holidays offer a great time to reflect on the past year, and look forward to the coming year. I think we can all agree that 2016 has brought some unexpected events, and 2017 will no doubt be filled with more. One thing that won’t change, though, is that Conway Locally Grown will continue to provide the best local food in Central Arkansas every week.

We’re having our last T-shirt giveaway starting tonight! Each item ordered from Ratchford Farms this week will earn you one entry into the giveaway for a stylish large T-shirt featuring Ratchford Farms Buffalo Ranch. For example: Buy 4 packs of ground beef and get 4 entries. A winner will be drawn Friday morning and the winner announced in the Friday Pick-Up Reminder email.

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

Check out over 525 wonderful items listed right now. See you on Friday!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
