Want to change your pickup time? The purpose of the time slots is to try to achieve an even flow so nobody has to wait too long. But we want this to be convenient for you. If you need to change your time slot or location, please text 912.481.2263, tell us the ORDER NAME and the TIME you would like to pick up. That way we can make sure your order is in the right place at the right time.

THE DRIVE-THROUGH PROCEDURE at the SCVB.

  • Drive counter clockwise all the way around the SCVB, keeping to the outer perimeter and maintaining a tight queue. A volunteer will check you in as you come around the back of the building..
  • Please display the name(s) for your order(s) on a windshield placard to assist in quick and safe check-in.
  • Please wear a mask while communicating with market staff.
  • 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.
  • We recommend that you bring a cooler for transporting meat, dairy and perishable items. Ice cream melts, even in a short car trip, and our fresh non-homogenized milk is temperature sensitive.
  • Wait in your car for the runner to come out with your order and load into your containers. Make sure your name placard is visible.
  • If you did not prepay on line with a debit or credit card, please make a check for exact amount when your order is delivered. (You may pay cash in exact amount, but any “change” from cash received will be credited to your account. Use an envelope to label the cash payment with your order name.)

Order Before Midnight!


Remember to place your Market2Go order before midnight tonight.

This week we are returning our drive-through operation to the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau (Visit Statesboro) at 222 South Main Street, where we will continue bringing you good food and artisanal products from our market producers. Sylvania pickups will still be at Victory Garden General Store but hours are changed. Home deliveries will continue as they’ve been.

Just Added!


This week has brought lots of great new products to Market2Go!

First off we’re thrilled to announce that Barrow Woodworks, a long time Saturday market favorite, has joined the online market and is offering his marvelous handmade wooden cutting boards, puzzles, chess sets, and clocks!

Next up we have three new vegetables for sale from Poor Robin Gardens. Whether you’d rather feel the heat with Ricardo’s fresh jalapeños, cool down with a long green cucumber, or enjoy a classic southern dinner with his new green beans, there’s definitely something here to suit all tastes.

Don’t miss out on this year’s chance to try some sweet Vanilla Peach Jam from J.R.’s Unique Jelly & Jam! Since it’s made in small batches from the first crop of peaches from Ogeechee Peaches it’s understandably a very limited edition product.

There’s a brand new vendor joining Market2Go, so please join us in welcoming Fluffelle, who’s selling both a cool new soap called Farmhouse Sink, and a lavender and vanilla scented room spray (a welcome novelty given how homebound most of us are at the moment!) Both handmade in Statesboro.

And finally, there’s some big news from Southern Soaked, who’s got a batch of new products as well! This long-awaited body butter has a whipped fluffy texture, is made with natural ingredients and comes in three alluring scents: a zesty citrus, a powerful eucalyptus mint combo, and a sweet lavender vanilla mixture.

Thank you for your support of the market and of our dedicated local farmers and producers.
