Every Saturday, we put together produce bags at the City Heights Farmers’ Market. We source all of our fresh produce from the farmers who sell at the market. As a result, our bags are seasonal, locally grown, and nearly all of the food is pesticide-free.
■ HOW DOES IT WORK? It’s simple!
- Order and pay for your bag via Paypal. Please do this by the preceding Friday at 10am.
- Come to our booth at the City Heights Farmers’ Market on Saturdays between 10am and 1pm.
- Bring your reusable bag and fill it with delicious fruits and veggies!
■ WHY SHOULD I BUY FROM YOU?
Our food is exactly the same as the food the farmers are selling. And since we are 100% volunteer-run, the entire $15 that you pay goes directly toward buying food from the farmers. (In fact, we fundraise on the side to pay for our minimal organizational costs.)
One benefit of buying from us is that we arrive early in the morning and get the first pick of the produce, often securing the best that the farmers bring to the market. We also pass on any discounts that the farmers may provide us for buying produce in larger quantities. Finally, many of our patrons enjoy the convenience of the one-stop produce pick-up. But don’t let us discourage you from wandering the market to add on to the produce bag, or stop for a delicious lunch at one of the prepared food vendors.
