Penn Aiken Dairy

Last Thursday was our first attempt at selling produce outside the Penn Aiken Dairy. The Penn Aiken Dairy is an interesting spot. The store is a centerpiece in the Garfield neighborhood, everyone goes their to get everything, candy, ice cream, lunch meat, cigarettes, even beer! So, it’s a prime location for us to sell veggies outside of, lots of foot traffic and all Garfield residents. The owner was reluctant at first, until I mentioned that we are made up of two churches working to grow food in Garfield and for Garfield. Now he seems very excited to help us. He called yesterday to see how it went last week. The shoppers were interested in our food, we sold a decent amount, all at low prices. We were joined by Maria from Healcrest Farm, which allowed us to take food stamps, which was very cool.

We’ll try this location again this week, so come on out and visit us from 4 – 7pm on Thursday night.

Whole Foods Market

Hello All, Just a reminder that Whole Foods is holding their monthly farmer’s market on Wednesday, August 26th from 4 – 7pm. We will be selling bushels of great veggies this month, including all those rare heirloom tomatoes and peppers. Come out, say hello, and support local farmers. All of your money goes directly to the farmers.

Farmer’s Markets

Oops, not tonight, but next Wednesday, July 29th, from 4pm – 7pm we’ll be selling lots of yummy produce at Whole Foods along with many other local farmers. Come out and pick up some great stuff from us and the others. We’ll have a few of our earliest tomatoes along with mint, basil, carrots, potatoes, onions, and more!

We will also be selling produce for even cheaper prices outside Valley View Church tomorrow night and most Thursday nights from 5 – 7pm. Located at the corner of Black Street and Aiken. Remember, the best stuff goes early!
