For organic produce look no further than the High Point and NewHolly Farm Stands opening for the season beginning this week. The farm stands offer produce picked fresh from the P-Patch market gardens and grown by low-income residents of the High Point and NewHolly Seattle Housing Authority (SHA) neighborhoods. Along with your favorite vegetables, you’ll also find uncommon produce such as sorrel, purslane, or edible chrysanthemums.
Hours of operation are 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the locations are:
- High Point Farm Stand (32nd Ave SW and SW Juneau St): open Wednesdays from July 5 to September 27
- NewHolly Farm Stand (S. Holly Park Dr between 40th Ave S and Rockery Dr S): open Fridays from July 7 to September 29
Both farm stands accept EBT cards and participate in Fresh Bucks which doubles consumers’ first $10 spent on the card. The High Point Farm Stand will again host ROAR, the mobile farm stand that sells produce to neighborhoods with limited access to healthy food. Come see the gardens, meet the farmers, and enjoy their fresh produce.
