August is here


Good morning everyone, Welcome to August! Now is the perfect time to stock up on all veggies and produce. It’s hot outside and so the veggies are growing. Now it’s also a great time to tell your family and friends about the Cumming Harvest and spread the news. Just a few announcements this week. We have noticed an influx of clients leaving their produce at the market at the end of the week. Because we are in the heart of veggie season, we do not have room to hold products over to the following week. If you are unable to pick up your items on Saturday, you need to reach out to the market manager. We will be charging a five dollar holding fee for every week that your items are not picked up. Please keep in mind because all of our products are fresh and locally grown, after the first week, we cannot guarantee quality of the product. Any products that are held longer than a week, will be donated the following week. If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to reach out to the market manager.

As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Good morning everyone, Here are the announcements for this week: We have had too many people leave their products every week, so we will be charging the five dollar holding fee. This fee will be charged if you place an order, and do not cancel before Thursday at 8 PM. We cannot continue to hold orders, every single week for clients. We would love to be able to, however we simply just do not have the space. Also, please remember that the market closes at 12 noon sharp on Saturday. We have had a lot of clients trying to show up after 12, and we need to be respectful of the volunteers time. Starting this week if you pick up after 12, and have not communicated to the market manager that you are running late, we will be charging a five dollar service fee. We understand things happen, so if something pops up please alert the market manager as soon as possible. As always if there are any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out.

Last week of June


Good morning everyone, We hope everyone is having a wonderful month of June. This nice warmer weather means more fruits and veggies are just around the corner.

We will continue to train our new interns this week, please remain patient when picking up your order, the interns are still learning the process.

We have seen an influx of people not picking up their order after they have ordered online, we want to send a gentle reminder that you must pick up your items the week you order them. We do not have room to hold from week to week. If you are unable to pick up your order because something happens, because we do understand that situations happen, you need to send a text to the market manager, or email the market manager at the email below. Sending an email to the Cumming harvest email will not be sent to the market manager in enough time to fix the situation. If this continues we will have to start charging people a hold fee, we do not want to do this. We like to keep our prices low for everyone. If you have any questions regarding this please reach out to Jaclyn.
As a reminder, we will continue with the social distance, the glass door will remain closed, so that you were able to look in and see if another client is present inside the market. Please remain outside if a current client is inside the market, you may come in as soon as they exit. As most people are aware our space is very small, so we are doing our best to keep the social distancing.

As always any questions please reach out to the market manager.

Please remember the market opens Saturday at ten am and closes at noon sharp.

Remember, all proceeds go to support the feeding of hungry children through Meals by Grace.
Thank you, happy shopping!

I hope everyone is staying safe this week and in the near future. To reiterate what was said last weekend:

We will open the market this week and our pickup on Saturday will largely be the same as previous weeks. In response to concerns over Covid-19 we will disinfect and sanitize all shared surfaces before and after business is conducted in the market. We ask that if you are feeling under the weather that you please refrain from placing an order this week or send someone else to pickup for you. Please follow all sanitary precautions put out by the CDC as we are following those guidelines as well and we want to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.

We are doing our best to keep you safe as well as our staff and volunteers. We are doing everything we can to provide alternative options for pickup to ensure your safety. We have had concerns brought up about how safe the market is and we would like to say that this is a service that we are providing. It is imperative that as the customer you understand that it is also your responsibility to keep yourself safe. We can take all the precautions we can to keep the market clean and sanitary but it is also your choice to make a calculated risk to leave your home during this shelter in place order. We want to make this pickup go as smoothly as possible which is why we have moved pickups outdoors as well as encourage you to pay online so there is less interaction and less touching of shared surfaces. Please help us help you as we do not want to have to shut down the market. This would effect you negatively as well as our growers who are doing their best to provide this service during these trying times.

We know that you are eagerly awaiting our Back in Time Farm chicken to be available again. They have been sold out but they should be back in stock by the last week in May! Thank you for your patience.

Thank you, Happy Shopping!
