Alton Park CommUNITY Urban Farm & Market
The mission of the Alton Park CommUNITY Urban Farm & Market is to create a sustainable urban farm and communal gathering space around food that empowers the community through health education, food access, and economic empowerment.
The urban farm contains 700 square feet of raised beds that are growing tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, squash, okra, strawberries, and watermelon. The market will accept cash, credit purchases of ($10 or more), and EBT.
Thanks to UnitedHealthCare the Alton Park CommUNITY Market also has a one-to-one matching program that provides $1 of free produce for every dollar spent using EBT.
The market will also feature other vendors including Crabtree Farms and Kids of Growth and our full list of available vendors can be found each week on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
