Jonesborough Locally Grown
is a community non-profit organization dedicated to supporting our local farmers, building our community, and increasing access to and awareness of fresh, healthy, locally grown food. We operate producer-only markets—where growers sell directly to consumers; no resale is allowed. We offer you two ways to buy the freshest local produce and food through our Saturday market and our online market. And coming in 2014: Boone Street Market retail store!
When the Saturday market closes in October, the online market opens up for the winter and offers local products every week until the Saturday market returns in May. It works like this: From Sunday-Tuesday customers can place orders on “the Market” page of this website for delivery to the Jonesborough Visitors Center on Wednesdays from 5-6pm. To get notification when the market is open, create your free customer account. When ordering is open, just click on “the Market” and start shopping!See the Q&A section for all the details!

Main Street Cafe and Catering created and hosted our first Farm to Table fundraiser on a beautiful August evening in 2011. At each Farm to Table Dinner, Chef Alex Bomba creates an elegant 5-course meal from market ingredients.
The dinner raises critical operating funds for the market, thanks to the support of the town, a zillion volunteer servers, and the generous donations of
This year’s dinner served 200 people at our signature table on Main Street.
