Market2Go is Open!


THE MARKET IS OPEN!
Thanks to all the Market2Go customers and vendors and our amazing volunteers for making this expanded market such a success. In particular, your attention to our new pickup times has allowed us to improve our efficiency with less stress on staff and volunteers. Here is your market information for this week.

ORDER PROCESS. The Market2Go order process remains the same but with a few important reminders. Place your orders by midnight Tuesday for pickup/delivery on Thursday or Friday. Look for a confirmation email after you complete your order.

Please choose your pickup time/location from the drop-down menu before you check out. Some customers have said they missed it. But really, truly, the option is there, just before the payment step. Your selected location will be on your order verification.
Options are:

  • Statesboro: Thursday afternoon at Uncle Shug’s on Main
  • Statesboro: Friday morning at Uncle Shug’s on Main
  • Sylvania: Thursday afternoon at Victory Garden General Store
  • To Your Home Delivery (must add delivery to cart and prepay)

Please pay online to make our process more efficient and to better meet health guidelines. Register your debit or credit card at My Account and click “Pay Now” when you check out. Your card will only be charged after you have received your order, including any adjustments for missed items or other credits.

PICKUP PROCESS
Statesboro customers will have a choice of Thursday or Friday drive-through pickup at Uncle Shug’s on Main (434 South Main Street). Pickup hours will be reduced, but specific times will be determined to optimize traffic flow, based on customer orders and location choices. Watch for a Market UPDATE Wednesday night giving specific pickup times. Your attention to designated pickup times helps us make the process smooth and minimizes waiting for everyone.
If you’re using the drive-through pickup, please display a placard with your name.

Modified pickup time for Sylvania customers! Sylvania orders may be picked up in front of the Victory Gardens General Store at 124 W Telephone Street on Thursday afternoon from 3:45 to 5:15.

Home Delivery option. Statesboro and Bulloch County residents can have their orders delivered to their homes on Thursday afternoon by purchasing the item “Home Delivery” and selecting To Home Delivery in the drop-down location menu at checkout.
