Welcome to Manchester Locally Grown Market!



Manchester Locally Grown is a project of local farmers and artisans who wish to better serve you, the local community. The project is modeled after successful on-line farmers’ markets across the country. We are offering a new approach to the traditional Saturday morning community Farmers’ Markets, connecting local farmers and customers with the convenience of online ordering of the fresh products of our area. We believe that the small farm can make a difference, and that the community can aid the small farm in this effort.

Although not a true cooperative, we use cooperative efforts to achieve steady and dependable means of supplying the highest quality produce and other products. That good old-fashioned community-building, friendly experience you enjoy in a bustling local farmers’ market has now been combined with modern internet technology to better serve you! We are confident that this will be a useful way for you to connect with local food producers.

Supporting your local farmers and artisans has now been made easy:
  • Order conveniently from the comfort of your home computer, beginning Sunday at 8:00 a.m. through Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. each week, by visiting the “Market” page
  • Search for products by category, by best sellers, or by farm
  • Know what you’re purchasing by reading more information about the farmers, their farming practices, and their products on the “Growers” page.
  • Pick up your order on Thursdays between 3:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. at Square Books Round Cookies, 113 East Main Street, Manchester. This is a white block building located next to “The Brew.” If these pickup times are inconvenient for you, we will be glad to refrigerate your produce and eggs so that you can pick them up Friday from 10 am to 1 pm. Please let me know if you need this free service.

    Purchasing Local Foods and Products Through the Market

    Unlike other co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, milled products, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.

    Placing Orders
    Each Sunday morning, an e-mail is sent to everyone with an active account announcing that the Market is open for ordering. Customers are invited to place their order for the week through the website, any time after that email goes out, but no later than Tuesday at 10 p.m. Growers and producers receive their orders Tuesday evening, so that on Wednesday and Thursday they can harvest or make the products that were actually ordered.

    Picking Up Orders
    From 3:00 until 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, customers will pick up their orders at Square Books Round Cookies, 113 East Main Street, Manchester. This is a white building located next to “The Brew.” If these pickup times are inconvenient for you, we will be glad to refrigerate your produce and eggs so that you can pick them up Friday from 10 am to 1 pm. Please let me know if you need this free service.


    Gift Certificates are also 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!
