Welcome to Duluth Locally Grown, a website dedicated to supporting local growers and producers, and to providing you better access to the many sources of fresh, naturally grown produce and farm products available from your area. Through this website, you can order items directly from a local farmer or food producer, and pick them up conveniently at the Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church on Wednesdays, from 4 pm to 7:00 pm. By creating an account and placing an order, you are helping to support a growing community of small family-run farms and specialty food producers in the Northeast Georgia area, while getting access to a wide range of fresh and wholesome produce, fruit and specialty food items, each grown or made within 60 miles of Duluth, and using natural or organic methods. Take some time to see what’s in the market this week. You might be surprised at what is available.
To place an order, go to the market and shop online in the market, which is updated each week. The site is available to take orders from 12:00 am Friday until 9 pm on Monday and your orders are delivered on Wednesday evening, in the parking lot of the Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church on Pleasant Hill Road. The site is hosted by Paradise Found Farm, with thanks to the Church for the use of its parking lot so we can have a spot to deliver your orders. We hope this website will encourage you to eat healthfully, and to enjoy the goodness grown in your area.
The Market Rules
Payment is expected at the time of pickup. Paradise Found Farm is acting only as an agent of delivery and does not legally take possession of your orders in the sense of buying and reselling the market items to you. Your order is directly with the farmer and/or producer, and unless other arrangements are made with them, payment is expected at pickup so we can deliver their sales monies directly back to them on the return trip. Only Cash or Personal Checks are accepted at the present time.
The Market is open between 12 am Friday and 9 pm on Sunday. Orders placed before the market opens and/or after the market closes are subject to cancellation. The time the market is closed is used by the Growers and Producers to fulfill orders, deliver their products, and to update their online inventory. Since this is an internet-based operation, we do not offer any items for sale to the public at our pickup location. All items must be ordered online while the market is open.
If you need to cancel an order, please do so prior to noon on Wednesday, so we have time to get the word to the provider. You can cancel all or parts of your order online, or by calling Paradise Found Farm before the cutoff time. If you fail to cancel by the cutoff time, or you don’t pickup your order by market close, you are still responsible for the charges, and they will be added to your next order. The ownership of the order items then passes to the Market and they will dispose of them as they see fit. The fresh items are usually donated to the Church’s Food Ministry, and the durable goods are returned their suppliers. If you need to cancel your order, please let us know in time to prevent all the hassle of fulfilling your order and having to take it back.
