Gardeners offer fresh, affordable organic produce!
For organic produce look no further than the High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands opening for the season beginning on Friday. The farm stands offer produce picked fresh from the P-Patch Market Gardens and grown by low-income residents of the High Point and NewHolly Seattle Housing Authority (SHA) neighborhoods.
High Point Farm Stand
32nd SW and SW Juneau Street
open Wednesdays 4-7pm from July 11 – October 3
NewHolly Farm Stand
S. Holly Park Dr. between 40th S and Rockery Drive S
open Fridays 4-7pm from July 6 – September 28
Both farm stands accept EBT cards and participate in Fresh Bucks which doubles consumers’ SNAP dollars when they choose to spend them on fresh fruits and vegetables. Come see the gardens, meet the farmers, and enjoy their fresh produce.
The High Point Farm Stand will again host ROAR, the mobile farm stand that sells produce to neighborhoods with limited access to healthy food.
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 farm stand enterprises.
