What is the Farm Stand?
Each year, we sell our produce at a weekly Saturday farm stand at Ferry Street Farm that runs from Memorial Day weekend through October. Featuring fresh vegetables and herbs grown organically on our urban farm sites, as well as occasional items from local partners such as local honey, mushrooms, and fruit, we offer nutritious, affordable food in the neighborhood right where it’s grown. Come out to get some delicious vegetables and support our work!
We also sell vegetable, herb and flower starts at our Annual Seedling Sale, on Memorial Day weekend. This year’s sale will be on Saturday, May 23rd.
We accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits as well as Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) checks. We also double the value of these types of payment. For example, for a SNAP purchase of $3, you can buy $6 worth of vegetables.
Farm Stand Pre-Pay: At the beginning of the season (before June 30, 2020), you may pre-pay for produce, and receive an additional 10% credit for amounts over $100 (e.g. a $300 payment becomes $330 in produce credit). Any credit not used during the 20+ weeks of the farm stand season would be considered a donation to support our educational programs. You can find more information by following the above link to the Farm Stand Pre-Pay web page.
We also accept cash, credit and debit cards.
Open, drop-in farm volunteering hours are held simultaneously at Ferry Street Farm, from 11am to 2pm each Saturday. Regular volunteers can receive vegetables for completing shifts as well as credit for community service. To learn more about volunteering with us, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our volunteers page.
Is Gather New Haven Certified Organic?
While our produce is not organic-certified (due to the burden of the certification process), we practice organic farming methods. Gather New Haven has also signed the CT NOFA Farmer’s Pledge.
