New Farmers from New Holly!

Scenes from Seattle’s New Holly Market Garden, our latest ROAR farm partners!

Good News: Food miles are down and produce selection is up! South Seattle-grown veggies are now available at all ROAR farm stands, courtesy of the New Holly P-Patch Market Garden. Similar to the Market Garden in High Point (host of our Wednesday vegetable parties), the New Holly community is home to a project run by residents of this SHA neighborhood. They have a weekly veggie box program and hold a farm stand every Friday at Holly Park Dr. & S. 40th, just off MLK & Othello. Visit ROAR this week to get some of that goodness, or stop by their garden on Friday from 2-5pm to meet the producers.

Now on to the sad news: IT’S OUR LAST WEEK FOR CHERRIES. We’ll have bargains on Rainiers from Collins Family Orchard, so shop early for those. To help you beat the heat, we’re also stocking apricots, nectarines, and peaches, plus yellow watermelon (!) from Alvarez Organics.
