Are there membership fees?
We are not charging membership fees at this time.
Will I have to buy vegetables I don't want?
Unlike some 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 FLORIDA SUNCOAST 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.
How do I order?
Each Monday, a list of available products is available by reviewing the MARKET. Customers must place their order for the week no later than Thursday at NOON. Orders can be placed here on our website. Ordering through this web site is our preferred method as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes us to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products.
When do I pay?
We accept cash or checks when you pick up your order. Because we may have to adjust your total then (to account for unnanounced items you decide to purchase or items that were unexpectedly unavailable), we do not accept advance payment on the website.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
After the orders are assembled, they are brought to the pick location of your choice.
Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm
Greens on the Gro Farm
2309 36th Ave E.
Saturdays from 9 am to 12 pm
Village of the Arts
1418 13th St. W
Toys R US Parking Lot
Payment is made after the customer has had the chance to inspect their order.
You must indicate what pick up location before you complete your order on line.
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.
FIRST Support local farms and farmers
SECOND Support local producers & products
THIRD Provide products that are not locally available with the least dramatic affect on our environment

If I sell a product on this market that requires state tax to be collected, Who is responsible for collecting the tax?
If you sell on this on line farmers market, the same rules apply as though you were selling at a traditional market.
If the product you are selling requires that state tax be collected, you are required to pay the tax. You can incorporate the cost of the tax in your selling price.
