Farm Stand at CSUMB

Open for the Spring Semester of 2015!

Tuesdays: 10:00AM to 2:00PM

Everyone’s Harvest is looking for students involvement with the Farm Stand. If you are a CSUMB student and interested in supporting the Farm Stand contact us. 

 

Everyone’s Harvest is a partner in the continuation of  a Farm Stand at CSUMB, and is also supported by United States Department (USDA) Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP).  The Farm Stand helps support farmers that sell at our Certified Farmers’ Markets.

CSUMB Students can use their Meal Plan dollars to purchase fresh, local produce!
Exchange Meal Plan $$ for Farm Stand vouchers at the Dining Commons or Otter Express.
Cash  and EBT is also happily accepted!

The Farm Stand at CSUMB is located in front of Peet’s Coffee at the CSUMB Library (see green arrow).

What is an Everyone’s Harvest Farm Stand? Our farm stands offer fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and flowers purchased on the day of or the night before from an Everyone’s Harvest Certified Farmers’ Market. All items sold support the many local small-scale farmers at our Certified Farmers’ Markets, some of which serve low-income or working-class communities.

Why a Farm Stand instead of a Farmers’ Market? Everyone’s Harvest runs a Farm Stand in a location where the estimated number of customers will not support a group of farmers. We value the farmers’ time and know we need to build a customer base to make it worthwhile for farmers to attend a Farmers’ Market. A Farm Stand meets communities’ needs for fresh, local, organic produce, and at the same time supports small-scale farmers and Certified Farmers’ Markets. 

Everyone’s Harvest envisions a Farm Stand attracting enough customers for future expansion into a Certified Farmers’ Market!
