Community Farm Stands

A farm stand is a temporary, on-site set up of fresh local foods for sale at your hospital, school or community organization. The Common Market Farm Stand is a completely flexible program where you can choose when your farm stand runs, how often, and what local products are best suited for your community members.

The Common Market Farm Stand program can:

• Help your organization plan and organize an on-site farm stand

• Supply seasonal ordering and pricing tips and promotional materials to get the word out

• Deliver fresh, sustainable, local products directly to your location!
