Winfield Market Locally Grown is part of the Locally Grown network that began several years ago in Athens, GA, and now has chapters across the country.
Our mission is to bring more organically grown food and household options to Appling, Ga. and the surrounding communities. Each grower in our market uses strict standards to ensure that everything produced is chemical-free. All member farms are dedicated to supplying their customers with the freshest and highest quality vegetables, herbs, mill products, dairy, eggs, meats, fruits, flowers, and transplants. Participating farms vary in size and specialty, but all carry the common thread of dedication to community, environment, health and education.
While not a true cooperative, Winfield Market Locally Grown uses cooperative efforts to achieve steady and dependable means of supplying the highest quality produce and other products. Locally Grown works to find new and innovative methods to preserve greenspace, protect our natural resources, support our local economy, provide meaningful work, and return to a more self-sufficient community life. Each farmer realizes the importance of educating the community about the benefits of sustainable agriculture practices to our lives and our land.
Enhance 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.
Contribute to better health for you and your family: This market is dedicated to offering products that are chemical-free. By eating organically-grown food, you are reducing your risk of cancer and other health problems often linked to synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics, hormones, and other yucky stuff in conventional food.
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.
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.

Other Important Items
Each Sunday at Noon, a list of available products is sent to everyone with an account here by e-mail and the online market is opened. It is very important that you note NOT to mark our emails as “spam” in your email settings, if you do you may not be able to receive these emails and thus complete your order. Customers must place their order for the week any time after that email goes out, but no later than Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. After that time the online market is closed. Orders are placed here on our website.
Growers receive their orders that same night and harvest on Wednesday and Thursday.
Our growers will deliver your produce and items for you to pick up at the following location
7469 Winfield Road
Appling, GA 30802
Pick-Up Time Is FRIDAY Anytime Between
2 p.m. – 7 p.m.
We accept cash and Visa & MasterCard credit and debit cards. We do not accept checks. At this time we do not accept SNAP, or USDA Food Stamp Cards, however, we have applied to do so in the future.
You may pay when your order is picked up using cash, debit or credit card.
Please Note: ,
Because growers have already harvested your order fresh to your request and The Farmers Market has already paid the growers when they dropped off your order, orders that are NOT picked up by Friday 7 p.m. will be donated and you will still be charged and responsible for full payment.
Gift Certificates are available! If you would like to purchase a gift of health and flavor, please consider a Locally Grown gift certificate. You can decide the amount and the lucky recipient can purchase locally grown produce without having to pay membership fees!
