The St. John’s Holy Apostles Farmer’s Market will return for the 2017 season on Sunday, May 14, in the gathering space. It will move out into the church parking lot on the corner of Kent Street and Summit Avenue, on Sunday mornings, from 9:00 am to Noon, beginning in June.
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, Halle Q. Brown. 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.
