      The High Point Farm Stand opened this week offering fresh organic produce picked right from the P-Patch market gardens. Grown by low-income gardeners, the produce that is fresh right now is spinach, carrots, leafy vegetables, new onions, peas, turnips, and radishes, to name a few. The farm stands’ hours of operation are 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.


      High Point Farm Stand (32nd Ave. SW and SW Juneau Street) open Wednesdays from July 9 to September 24.


      The High Point Farm Stand accept EBT cards and participate in Fresh Bucks which doubles consumers’ first $10 spent on the card. Come see the garden, meet the farmers, and enjoy their fresh produce.


      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with Seattle Housing Authority and GROW to support low-income gardeners and their neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.
