*During the winter months, our production capacity at Real Food Farm (and for all urban farms in Baltimore) slows down significantly due to limited daylight hours and cold temperatures. To ensure we and other Farm Alliance members have a consistent supply and variety of fresh produce at market, the Farm Alliance will only be at the Waverly 32nd Street Farmers’ Market every 2nd and 4th Saturdays during January, February, and March.*
Every Saturday morning all year long, you can purchase Real Food Farm produce at the Waverly 32nd Street Farmers’ Market as part of the Farm Alliance stand. We sell with the Farm Alliance to support its goal to provide small farms the opportunity to sell at Waverly and grow as a farm. This ongoing collaboration helps Real Food Farm fulfill its mission of developing an economically viable, environmentally responsible local agriculture sector.
Real Food Farm and Civic Works first chose to support the Waverly Market because it was at the forefront of food access efforts and one of the first markets in the area to accept EBT and WIC. Participation in the farmers’ market provides us with an additional sales outlet without having to stray too far from our surrounding neighborhoods.
This becomes especially important during the winter season when we shut down our neighborhood markets. This season proves a difficult time to draw customers to these neighborhood markets, not only because of the colder weather but also because of the decreased variety we are able to produce during these colder months. To realize our goal of providing fresh produce to our community neighbors living in the food deserts around Clifton Park, we rely on our Mobile Farmers Market to deliver fresh produce to nearby neighborhoods throughout the winter.
