NewHolly and High Point farm stands open

NewHolly and High Point Farm stands will open for the season on Wednesday, July 7. The farm stands are open every Wednesday from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm until September 29, 2010.  Gardeners living in the High Point and NewHolly neighborhoods grow, harvest and market their fresh produce.

The High Point farm stand is located at 32nd SW and SW Juneau Street in West Seattle.
