At your designated pickup time, please drive in the market entrance on the far side of the lot and circle around the perimeter to the main restaurant entrance. Make your circle as wide as possible, and do not leave gaps in the line – social distancing not required for vehicles!

NEW PICKUP HOURS! To smooth the flow of traffic and minimize customer wait times, we’re providing customers with designated pickup times. Please arrive during the one-hour time slot assigned alphabetically by last name of customer order:

Last names A through G Pick up between 4:00 and 5:00
Last names H through O Pick up between 5:00 and 6:00
Last names P through Z Pick up between 6:00 and 7:00

We want all our customers to be able to get their groceries. If you have a serious problem observing the assigned time slots, please text 912.481.2263 with your order name and the time you can pick up your order, so we can adjust our planning.

We’ll text you when we’re on the way, then leave your order, including a FREE insulated Market2Go bag, at the entrance you designate. Pickup times do not apply for home delivery orders.

New DRIVE-THROUGH Procedure

  • Please arrive at UNCLE SHUG’S within your designated time slot.
  • Drive clockwise around the outermost perimeter, maintaining a tight queue, from the designated entrance to the front of the restaurant.
  • A staff member will check you in at the rear of the lot; please provide the customer name(s) for the order(s) you’re picking up.
  • Your order will be brought out to your vehicle from the main restaurant entrance as you wait in the line of traffic.
  • Provide access to your vehicle and to the containers you want loaded (bags, boxes, bins or coolers); e.g., unlock the back door or pop the trunk, with containers inside.
  • Wait in your car for the runner to return with your order and load into your containers.
  • Provide credit card or check or remind us if you are prepaid.. (You may pay cash in exact amount, but to reduce money handling, any “change” from cash received will be credited to your account.

Here’s how you can help.:

  • Arrive during your designated time slot. You MUST be in the queue before 7:00.
  • Allow plenty of time for your pickup; be patient and be prepared to wait in line.
  • Help us maintain social distance and avoid contact with unsanitized items
  • Bring containers for your order (bags, boxes, bins) but leave them in your vehicle

  • Bring a credit card or check for payment. For future orders, pay online with credit or debit card — we’ll help you register your card..
  • (Again) Be patient — we’re in this together.

We are so grateful to the Uncle Shug’s family and staff for donating their time and facility to help our community during this difficult time.

IMPORTANT UPDATE for Market2Go customers


Thank you for your support of Market2Go! We’re pleased to be able to offer online shopping and drive-through pickup for your fresh local food and essential products. Our first week of the drive-through was successful but not flawless, and this week we have twice as many orders! Please help us as we work to improve our delivery process.

We’re mindful of keeping ourselves, our vendors and our customers healthy by following CDC sanitation guidelines and maintaining social distance. Market2Go vendors are exercising care in the packing and handling of your orders, and delivering those orders to us in a low-contact drive-through process. We’ve redesigned our order pickups to minimize social contact.

Our pickup procedure has changed! Statesboro customers will still pick up their Market2Go orders at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau at 222 South Main Street, but you will not need to go into the building. Instead, the Market2Go staff will greet you at your vehicle, confirm your order and then bring it out to you.

New designated pickup times. To accommodate the enormous increase in orders, and to minimize customer wait times, we’re dividing the pickup times into 3 one-hour slots, and assigning one third of customers to each slot. Please observe these assigned pickup times to help us manage the traffic flow.

Last names A through G Pick up between 4:00 and 5:00
Last names H through O Pick up between 5:00 and 6:00
Last names P through Z Pick up between 6:00 and 7:00

Here’s the new drive-through procedure.

  • Please arrive at the SCVB within your designated time slot, between 4:00 and 7:00
  • Drive around to the right (counter clockwise) toward the rear of the building, forming a line of vehicles. We’ll serve customers in the queue, starting at the end of the ramp.
  • A staff member will check you in as you arrive; please provide the customer name(s) for the order(s) you’re picking up.
  • Provide access to your vehicle and to the containers you want loaded (bags, boxes, bins or coolers); e.g., unlock the back door or pop the trunk, with containers inside.
  • Wait in your car for the runner to return with your order and load into your containers.
  • Provide credit card or check or remind us if you are prepaid.. (You may pay cash in exact amount, but to reduce money handling, any “change” from cash received will be credited to your account.
