We are incredibly excited about this program through the Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens CSA, that connects local produce, grown by low-income farmers with Seattle families looking for healthy, local fruit and veggies. Through this program you can receive up to 18 weeks of farm-fresh organic produce grown right here in Seattle.

Each subscription comes with 15 items of organic seasonal produce grown at the NewHolly and High Point Seattle Market Gardens, a Seattle Department of Neighborhoods program that helps to establish healthy communities and economic opportunity in low-income neighborhoods. The cost ranges from $15 to $25 a week based on the size of the share with prorated shares available.

Subscribers can either pick up their produce at the gardens where they are grown and meet the farmers or on Saturdays at a Green Lake Location, St. Andrews Episcopal Church.

Here’s all the details:

The pick-up locations, dates, and times are:
Thursday evenings, now through October 13 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.
High Point Market Garden (32nd Avenue SW and SW Juneau Street)
NewHolly Market Garden (42nd South and South Rockery Drive)

Saturdays, now through October 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
