How to find fresh produce in Raleigh and support local farms

raleigh city farm

The Raleigh City Farm will holds its Farmstand Wednesdays from 4-7 p.m. at its location at 800 N. Blount Street, in the North Person area near Yellow Dog, Two Roosters and Edge of Urge. 

What you’ll find: An evolving selection of fresh produce and even plants for your home garden.

Even better, Raleigh City Farm donates a portion of its produce to do-gooder groups such as A Place at the Table, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and Logan’s Plant a Row for the Hungry. [more info, including safety measures]

More fresh food ideas:

🌱 Tall Grass Food Box: This CSA supports Black farmers in the Triangle area. “Every other week we will pull together fresh produce from Black Farmers across NC and put it together in a box for you to pick up. Each box has enough to feed 1-2 people or an individual who cooks more 3 or more times a week.” [learn more]

🌱 Triangle Urban Farm: Order delivery North Carolina produce, meat, eggs, dairy and other products. [TUFproduce.com]

🌱 Raleigh State Farmers Market: The farmers market is still open during its normal hours, though the best selection is from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. [more info]

🌱 ko.mmunity Hub: A drive-thru resource for “groceries, curated artisanal boxes from local purveyors and farmers, and take and heat family meal kits from local chefs and restaurants — in one space.”  

The idea is to create a food supply chain that’s more locally focused and sustainable. Behind the project: chef Drew Smith of kō•än, Kristen Baughman of Tabletop Media Group and Jenn Rice, food journalist.

Selections available for order include items like a Carroll’s Kitchen meatloaf, STIR’s Mac and cheese, a kō•än Mother’s Day meal kit and a box of Slingshot cold brew goodies. Order by 3 p.m. Thursdays for Saturday pickups. [ko.mmunity hub site]
