Here are some frequently asked questions:
And here are some answers:
How do I order?
Sign up as a customer. You will receive a weekly email reminding you that the market is “open for ordering” Sunday through 6 p.m. Tuesday. When you place your order, please be sure to click the “Place This Order” button, or we won’t get your order.
BTW, though I expect you will love ordering through us, there are simple links at the bottom of the My Account page to remove yourself from the email list or from the market. You are not stuck with a lot of endless emails just for exploring the market.
When do I pay?
We accept cash or checks when you pick up your order. Because we may have to adjust your total then (to account for unnanounced items you decide to purchase or items that were unexpectedly unavailable), we suggest you wait until pickup to write the check. You may also pay from your smartphone using Square Cash ($bspa). And you may put funds “on account”, putting down $100 or more and drawing against it.
When and where do I pick up my order?
We deliver within the City of Plattsburgh, the base, up Route 9 from Peru.
You may also pick up your orders over the weekend at Rehoboth Homestead in Peru, by ordering from our “sister” online site – peru.locallygrown.net. If you are picking up Sunday or Monday, please tell us in the comment box so we can keep your things in our cooler or freezer until the day you pick up.
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.
