The High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands offer fresh organic produce picked right from the P-Patch market gardens. Grown by low-income gardeners, the produce that is fresh right now is spinach, carrots, leafy vegetables, new onions, peas, turnips, and radishes, to name a few.
The farm stands’ hours of operation are 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Both farm stands accept EBT cards and participate in Fresh Bucks which doubles consumers’ first $10 spent on the card. Come see the garden, meet the farmers, and enjoy their fresh produce.
Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with Seattle Housing Authority and GROW 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.

In celebration of the P-Patch Program’s 41st anniversary, MOHAI is sponsoring an educational walk this Saturday. The walk begins at the UpGarden at Seattle Center, and meanders down to the Belltown P-Patch and back. Along the way you will learn about the growing techniques in these two very different, very special gardens, and talk about their inception and the overall history of the program. The walk will include a look at large and small efforts to transform our urban landscape, with a little history and some unique sites thrown in.
The tour has a small fee, which supports MOHAI’s efforts to connect Seattle people to its history. Pre-registration is required. Here’s a link:
