High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands open this week
Low-income gardeners offer fresh organic produce

Seattle, WA - The High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands open this week offering fresh organic produce picked right from the P-Patch Market Gardens. Fresh right now are spinach, carrots, leafy vegetables, new onions, peas, turnips, and radishes, to name a few. 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 July 10 to October 9.
  • NewHolly Farm Stand (S. Holly Park Dr. between 40th Ave. S. and Rockery Dr. S.) open Fridays from July 12 - October 11.

Both farm stands accept EBT cards and participate in the new Fresh Bucks Project which doubles consumers' first $10 spent on the card.

Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.
