Where to buy our produce
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it’s an easy way for people to buy fresh and local produce directly from their local farmer (or urban farmer in our case!) Through our CSA, customers get a box of fresh produce every week grown by local youth in City Heights and Southeast San Diego. All proceeds go back into running youth programming and sustaining our urban farming efforts. We sell CSA shares three times per year, and each one of them is a 10-week commitment. Customers prepay for the 10 weeks and get a bag of fresh produce delivered to them! Let us know if you are interested. It only takes five other people to become a drop-off site.
People’s Produce Farmers Market
The People’s Produce (PP) Farmers Market is located in Southeastern San Diego. Defined as a “food swamp”, Southeast San Diego is a neighborhood lacking healthy food access. The PP market addresses this issue by providing residents with healthy, affordable farm fresh food every Saturday from 3pm to 6pm (47th Street and Castana). We sell at this market once a month.
Farm stands are like pop up farmers markets. Traditionally these are held on the farm but we also set up at other locations. Currently we sell at the San Diego County Office of Education and are looking for more venues to host a stand. If you are interested please let us know! This can be a onetime event or an ongoing commitment (every two weeks, once a month etc).
Restaurants Sales/Special Events
Although our space is limited we are very excited to work with local restaurants and can even make arrangements to grow special crops. This will become more feasible in the spring when we expand to a new site. We have also had a variety of requests to host special event farm-to-table dinners at our urban garden sites. We are more than happy to host special events with advanced notice. We have chefs we have worked with and are also open to working with new chefs too. We provide all produce and space on site and have youth help cater the event.
