The HOPE Farm Stand is a project of HOPE Farmers Market that captures surplus produce from backyard and community gardeners in East and Central Austin and aggregates it for sale at our Sunday market. Now in full swing, this project gives individuals and organizations that grow food a chance to earn some extra income while keeping good local food from going to waste. Furthermore, the Farm Stand provides a meaningful link between the market and the community it is rooted within, as well as new connections between a diverse range of community consumers and growers centered around beautiful, high-quality produce grown right here in Austin.
Individuals, community gardens and small urban & rural farms can bring crates overflowing with bumper crops or small baskets of a few garden veggies to our Farm Stand on Sunday mornings. Funds raised by the project go directly towards supporting HOPE Farmers’ Market’s all-new SNAP/EBT Acceptance Program! Interested gardeners should Contact Heather for more information and a short application.
