At Conway Locally Grown, we are so very thankful for our market community.
We say thank you to:

  • the farmers and producers, who work extremely hard every day and through every kind of weather to bring us the best locally grown and produced foods and products!!!
  • the volunteers who help us run the market each week!!! We could not do it without you!
  • Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church for letting us use their facility every week!!! You have been so kind!
  • our customers, most of all, who value the food and this work!!! Thank you for your continued loyalty and friendships!

Make sure to tell your family and friends how thankful you are to have them in your life!!!

We hope each and everyone of you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Tuesday Reminder - LAST MARKET B4 T-GIVING!: Market Closes Tonight at 10pm.


Hello friends,
Weather alert: Be ready for lots of items on the EXTRAS tables. Temps forecast for 30 degrees Saturday night means it’s the end for some crops like green beans, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, basil, etc. Most produce will last several weeks in the fridge so stock up now!

From Strack Farm: I will bring the last of my green beans to market on Friday. Get them, freeze them, enjoy them all winter.

There’s still time to place your order for pickup this Friday, November 18th. The market closes TONIGHT after 10pm. Come early on Friday for the best selection from the Extras table. See you Friday!

Opening Bell: NEW GROWER, Salsa, Cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower!


Good evening!
We have a new Grower! Funny Farm is located in Wooster and is managed by Nathaniel Ziegler. He has many kinds of animals on his 40 acre spread just outside Conway. It was by strange coincidence that our paths crossed, but we are very glad they did! Nathaniel stays busy making the final preparations to make sure his animals all have food and safe housing for the coming winter. Funny Farm will have duck eggs listed, and occasionally will have chicken and turkey eggs. Welcome, Nathaniel!

Maria’s Homemade Country Fare will be set up at this weeks market with all of your holiday favorite jams, chocolate covered cherries, pickles, snacks and more. She will have samples of Spinach dip and Caramel dip to taste…mmmmm!

This is the LAST market before Thanksgiving! We will NOT have a market the Friday after Thanksgiving, Nov 25th. Be sure to get all your holiday favorites before they sell out. Get some salsa and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, or some football games. You’ll also need some Cheese, Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli, Green Beans, Potatoes, Cauliflower, etc. There’s an abundance of fall produce on our market right now! If you haven’t done it before, this year try using fresh, local herbs in your dressing and gravy. Sage is most commonly used, but also rosemary, oregano, etc. Browse the market categories. Find your favorite items, or try something new.

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 550 wonderful items listed right now. See you on Friday!

Come early on Friday for the best selection from the EXTRAS table. And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
