Purchase Our Produce

Urban Growers Collective grows a variety of crops so that our farm stands, Fresh Moves Mobile Market, and Collective Supported Agriculture shares are stocked with a beautiful and nutritious range of fresh produce. In addition to fruits and vegetables, we grow culinary and medicinal herbs, edible flowers, and a wide array of ornamental plants for neighborhood beautification. We also raise goats, chickens, and honey bees.

FARMERS’ MARKETS
& FARM STANDS

July through October, Urban Growers Collective takes part in several farmers’ markets and runs weekly farm stands: one at our South Chicago Farm and another at our Roosevelt Square Youth Farm. We sell a range of UGC-grown foods, produce and value-added products from our Incubator Farmers, and culturally-affirming staple fruits and vegetables from our partner, Midwest Foods.

Our goal is to provide fresh, healthy food to South Side communities that have historically lacked access. We accept cash, Link/SNAP, credit, and debit at all of our farm stands and markets. Check back soon for our 2021 schedule!

FRESH MOVES
MOBILE MARKET

The Fresh Moves Mobile Market is a bus that has been converted into a mobile farmers’ market that brings fresh, locally grown produce to communities on Chicago’s South and West Sides. We partner with community centers, health clinics, and schools — places folks already frequent — to make the market accessible to as many people as possible. The mobile market also sells prepared foods and snacks, pantry staples, and value-added products from local BIPOC growers and makers.

We accept cash, Link/SNAP, credit, and debit. Find our full winter/spring 2021 schedule at the link below.

COLLECTIVE SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

From July to October, UGC runs a Collective Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Members receive weekly boxes of seasonal vegetables and culinary herbs grown on Urban Growers Collective’s farms! Each CSA box consists of 12-15 vegetables and is supplemented with micro greens from Urban Eden, fruit from Seedling Farm, and vegetables grown by our Incubator Farmers.

Monthly and full season shares are available, and members can either pick up their shares every Saturday or have them delivered for an additional fee. Check back soon for details about 2021 shares!
