Fresh Produce for Sale along the Trail

The Burke-Gilman Trail will now have a fresh produce stand on Fridays, 3 to 5:30 PM, beginning on August 29, 2014, brought to you by students of the UW Farm.  Students will sell produce just across the Trail from the Husky Grind, 1315 NE Campus Parkway, at the Mercer Courts Apartments of the University of Washington.

The UW Farm is a campus center for the practice and study of urban agriculture and sustainability. It is an educational, community-oriented resource for people who want to learn about building productive and sustainable urban landscapes. All proceeds go towards sustainable farming education and student development.

The produce stand will sell fresh, hyper-local lettuce, kale, chard, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, carrots, beets, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, turnips, radishes, beans, tomatillos, herbs (parsley, sage, rosemary, oregano, thyme, lavender), mustard, garlic and more!  Grab some greens on your way home along the Trail!
