REALLY FRESH means a lot more than just uncooked. You can get that kind of “fresh” in a lot of places. At Harvest Home Farmers’ Markets, FRESH means straight from a nearby farm directly to you.
Ripened naturally in our farmers’ sunny fields
Picked the day before it’s delivered to our markets, NOT put on a truck before it’s naturally ripe and shipped hundreds of miles.
Handled with care by farmers we know, NOT loaded with pesticides and power sprayed with chemicals
Grown with respect for the soil and the earth. Many of our farms have naturally super-rich land (black soil) which reduces the use of chemical fertilizers!
You’ll taste the difference when you bite into a crisp apple or crunch on a green bean. More than just better taste, you get a whole lot more nutrition for your money. PLUS we accept SNAP, EBT, Healthbucks - all forms of payment.
Meet the farmers who grew your food! You can make sure it’s REALLY FRESH, has the taste you want and the nutrition you need. Now THAT’S getting your money’s worth!
Don’t be fooled by appearances. Sometimes our straight-out-of-the-field produce doesn’t look as perfect as those wrapped-in-plastic veggies. Our farmers are more concerned with taste than looks: a few brown radish leaves just means that radish was ripened in the field; that black dirt on the carrots shows how recently it was picked! Think of the farmer’s stall as your garden. Have questions? Ask your farmer!
NOW is the season of REALLY FRESH: Plump purple eggplants, yellow & green squash, crispy leafy greens, broccoli, juicy melons, snappy green & yellow beans, red, yellow & green peppers. Stop by a Harvest Home Market to enjoy it all!
