WEB EXCLUSIVE Every Wednesday at Raleigh City Farm, a colorful display of hyper-local produce awaits customers eager to get their hands on fresh vegetables. Lettuce, radishes, kale, green onions and carrots are just some of the rainbow of vegetables available each week at the Farmstand, all of which are grown sustainably and without any chemicals on an acre of land in the Person Street Neighborhood. 

Raleigh City Farm’s Farmstand is part of its mission to connect the community to sustainable agriculture and ensure that consumers are getting their food from a reliable, local source. Purchasing vegetables from the Farmstand at Raleigh City Farm also supports the nonprofit’s efforts to share produce with other nonprofits who address food access and insecurity, including A Place at the Table and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.

Flower bouquets, tote bags, hats, masks from Edge of Urge and locally-made birdhouses are also for sale at the Farmstand, along with Raleigh City Farm t-shirts adorned with the farm’s mascot Sir Walter Rabbit, drawn by artist Jenny Eggleston.

Join Raleigh City Farm’s Cultivator Club to further help the group share its produce with other nonprofit organizations by donating anywhere from $10 to $100 a month. You’ll receive one to three additional items free at the Farmstand each week. 

The Farmstand at Raleigh City Farm takes place every Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at 800 N. Blount Street. Wear a mask, socially distance from others and know that your produce haul is doing good for both yourself and your family, and for others in need.
