For fresh organic produce look no further than the High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands opening for the season this week. The farm stands offer produce picked right from the P-Patch market gardens and grown by low-income residents of the High Point and NewHolly Seattle Housing Authority (SHA) neighborhoods. The hours of operation are 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- High Point Farm Stand (32nd Ave. SW and SW Juneau Street) open Wednesdays from June 24 to September 30.
- NewHolly Farm Stand (S. Holly Park Dr. between 40th Ave. S. and Rockery Dr. S.) open Fridays from June 26 to October 2.
Both farm stands accept EBT cards and participate in Fresh Bucks which doubles consumers’ first $10 spent on the card. Come see the gardens, meet the farmers, and enjoy their fresh produce.A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it. Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program to support low-income gardeners and their neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.
