Want to enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of someone else's labor? Like...literally?
The Sustainable Applewood Neighborhood Network has made this a FREE and NUTRITIOUS reality by organizing a FREE Produce Market on Tuesdays, now through September 26th.
If you’re like me, with a year's worth of fresh basil but not a tomato to your name- this market may be just what you're looking for. Truth is, sometimes the fun in home gardening is just seeing if you can succeed, but what do you do when you’ve cooked all the recipes in your 101 Ways to Cook Zucchini book and you still have a ton of the green stuff? You bring it to a Free Produce Market and SHARE IT!
A Produce and Seed Exchange is just one of the many Neighborhood Initiatives set forth by the Sustainable Applewood group, “To provide opportunities for swapping and sharing of garden produce to our Applewood neighborhood." Umm, yes please!
Got some shareable produce? Bring it to the corner of 23rd Place and Urban Drive Tuesday mornings at 7:30am to stock the tables.
Don’t have a green thumb but you’re really craving some of those veggies from your neighbor’s garden? No need to jump the fence and take it - just bring your reusable grocery bags starting at 7:45am and grab up some of their garden goodies.
Hope to see you there, neighbor!
