Can I customize my Market Box?
At this time, we cannot offer customization of our Market Boxes. Our produce will be what is available from our farmers for this program.
How do I order?
To order our Market Box, you can call us at (205) 836-3201 or place your order through this site. We ask that you order your box by Noon on Wednesdays for pick up on Saturday Morning.
When do I pay?
We accept cash, checks, credit/debit and EBT payments onsite when you pick up your box. We have a special program that allows us to discount our EBT purchases, so boxes will only be $10 or $15.
Paying onsite allows you to also browse the Farmer’s products as well as our Jam, Chow Chow, Relish, Honey and Baked Goods available also!
When and Where do I pick up my order?
You can pick up your Market Box on Saturday Mornings between 9:30 AM and Noon at East Lake Market located at:

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.
