Old Fourth Ward urban farm starts selling fresh produce on Friday

Posted By on Mon, Apr 11, 2011 at 2:30 PM

K. Rashid Nuri of Truly Living Well sends word that Wheat Street Garden, the four-acre urban farm he launched late last year just blocks from downtown, will hold its first market on Friday. Via email:

We have begun harvesting food from our newest farm site in the Old Fourth Ward. The first downtown Atlanta pickup will be Friday April 15th from 3 - 7 p.m. at 75 Hilliard off of Auburn Avenue. We still continue our Wednesday pickup at 3353 Washington Road in East Point

We hope you will come out and purchase fresh produce from us. This week we will have spinach, turnip greens, beet greens, green onions, green garlic, arugula, chard, broccoli leaves and an assortment of herbs.

Please come early for the best choices. We accept cash and checks, but the most economical way to purchase our produce is through a [community-supported agriculture] subscription.

More info on TLW's CSA program, which offers 13 weeks of fresh produce to subscribers, is available here. Info on other metro Atlanta farmer's markets and CSA programs can be found here.
