An Online Farmers Market
Dodgeville Farmers Market makes it possible for you to order your produce and pick it up at the market or at a location you and the grower arrange. You can place your order by Monday evening and pick it up after 12 pm Wednesday at a mutually agreed location. Our Saturday downtown market from 8 to 11 in the morning will still be available for you also.
At Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in quantities that you want, from the farmer you want. Once you sign up for an account, you will receive a weekly email that lists the products available that week. Inactive accounts may be deleted after one year. You can browse the items on this website before you place your order. At this time the annual membership fee is FREE.
What makes a LocallyGrown.net market?The produce is local to the market. Growers are located within a 100 mile radius. The growers set their own prices. Growers describe what is available and set own prices much like traditional farmers’ market booths and customers buy directly from the grower. The customer has choices. Customers can browse from different growers and choose exactly what to buy, how much and from whom. The customer has time to decide. Online market is open for a three day window, giving customers time to browse site and plan menus for the week. Availability is flexible. Item availability is sometimes estimated during the ordering window. Customer can order beyond the estimated availability; if product is available the order will be filled. The produce is harvested to order. After the ordering window closes, the grower is notified. All fresh produce is picked after order is taken, packaged, and delivered to the pick up site on pick up day. Payment is taken when the orders are picked up. Payment is not made at the time of ordering. Payment will be made in cash or check at time of pick up. Payment at pick up allows for changes to the order dictated by availability or customers change in mind. However, if a customer places an order but for whatever reason does not arrive to pick it up, the customer is still responsible for paying for that order.
Each Saturday, a list of available products is sent to everyone with an account here by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week any time after that email goes out, but no later than Monday at 5 pm. Orders are placed here on our website. Growers receive their orders Tuesday and begin harvest.
