The St. John’s Holy Apostles Farmer’s Market is back in the church parking lot on the corner of Kent Street and Summit Avenue, every Sunday morning from 9:00 am to Noon.
Every week, volunteers are needed to greet visitors at the market or to take produce to First Nations Kitchen. Click here to sign up for a hosting slot!
Our July 16 Mustard Seed offering will go towards the market and our Fields to Families program (see below to learn more).
Fields to Families
Donations to the program are collected at our farmers market during the summer and used to purchase produce from the farmers. This produce is then delivered to our neighborhood food shelf and to First Nations Kitchen for their Sunday evening meal. Last year we were able to donate 6,000 pounds of fresh food, feeding hundreds of families with healthy produce and supporting Hmong farmers from our companion parish, Holy Apostles. This year, we have a challenge grant of $1500. Donations can be made at the Farmers Market on Sunday mornings, from 9:00 am to Noon. Donations can also be sent to the Parish Office, marked for Fields to Families. No amount of money is too small, and every penny is used to buy food.
