The St. John’s Holy Apostles Farmer’s Market will be back in the church parking lot on the corner of Kent Street and Summit Avenue, every Sunday morning from 9:00 am to Noon, beginning June 9.
Hosts: 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!
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.
Bags Needed: First Nations Kitchen has a great need for paper and plastic bags (clean, used, not purchased new) for transporting our donated produce. Please bring donations of your grocery bags to the market on Sundays.
Matching Grant: We have the great fortune of partnering with a very generous donor who supplies a $1,500 matching grant for a weekly truck delivery of fresh produce from our Farmers’ Market to our local Hallie Q. Brown food shelf. We still need funds to meet our side of the matching grant. Send your check to the church office, marked “Fields to Families.” Or give in the cash box at the market every Sunday.
