Verde Gardens, site of the new  Homestead Harvest Farmer’s Market.

Please join us for the opening of the Homestead Harvest Farmers Market at Verde Gardens!

Friday, July 15th
4:00 to 8:00 pm
12700 SW 280 Street, Homestead, FL 33038

We are celebrating the opening of this beautiful, new building with the first of the Locavore Lounge events — bring some food to share, buy a smoothie from the new juice bar, or shop for local produce at the Farmer’s Market.

This new year-round market is dedicated to improving access to sustainably-grown local food for all and will double EBT benefits for the first $10 spent, and offer a wide variety of organic and sustainably grown products from the region.

In the fall we will start selling produce raised next door at the 22-acre permaculture farm we are now developing at Verde Gardens, as well as inviting in more local farmers to offer their products.

This building will be a center for cooking classes, micro-enterprises creating value-added products, and more with a fully functional commercial kitchen, serving the residents of Verde Gardens and the surrounding communities.

Supported by the Homeless Trust and Carrfour Supportive Housing, operated by Urban Oasis Project and Earth Learning.
