Editor’s Note: One of our missions at Tucson CSA is to provide a marketplace for new food producers to sell their products, get feedback, and continue to grow their operation. Many times, because these new producers are just starting off, they don’t have the infrastructure or ability to grow large enough quantities to provide food for our weekly shares. In this case, we’re able to sell a small amount of their goods in the CSA Shop so that Tucson CSA members can still get a taste of the new and wonderful food that’s being produced in our city. This is the case with Martha’s City Farm, which is relatively new and quickly growing. Over the coming weeks and months, we plan to offer some of their goods for sale in the CSA Shop, beginning with fresh mint and basil the week of 7/12. We hope that you enjoy trying something new and supporting this burgeoning urban farm!
Martha’s City Farm is a biodiverse micro urban farm in a dietitian’s garden. We are committed to practices that are good for the people and the environment. The garden is in our home in central Tucson, Arizona. We sell what we grow and the eggs our hens lay. What we do is inspired by being able to grow fresh, nutritious, and local food for our community to enjoy. We also provide gardening, food, and nutrition learning opportunities to inspire others to start a food garden and live a healthy life.
We sell microgreens, herbs, edible flowers, chicken eggs, fruits, vegetables, microgreen growing kits, and plants. Microgreens and eggs are available year-round and fruits, vegetables, herbs and plants are seasonal. Occasionally we stock up with handmade goods and other unique and local products. We offer a microgreens growing class and can also customize other learning opportunities.
