High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands open this week
Low-income gardeners offer fresh organic produce
SEATTLE – The High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands open this week offering 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.
- High Point Farm Stand (32nd Ave. SW and SW Juneau Street) open Wednesdays from July 9 to September 24.
- NewHolly Farm Stand (S. Holly Park Dr. between 40th Ave. S. and Rockery Dr. S.) open Fridays from July 11 to September 26.
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.
