Farm2Market is a small, diversified working farm that produces thousands of pounds of sustainably grown produce each year. We are a social enterprise of Alameda Point Collaborative and use our passion for food and the environment to support APC residents as they move toward economic self-sufficiency and greater health and wellness. Proceeds from our CSA (community supported agriculture) program and other sales activities are pumped back into APC’s programs and activities for its resident community.
Joining our CSA, stocking our honey in your store, or adding us to your list of suppliers is more than a simple exchange of cash for produce. When you support Farm2Market, you are making an investment in the health and well being of future generations.
Subscribing online to the Farm2Market CSA not only supports APC’s mission, but entitles you to a weekly share of the finest, freshest produce available.
Farm2Market welcomes inquiries from local markets and restaurants interested in stocking and using our products. Please contact the Employment & Education Manager, Kevin Looney, at 510-898-7824 directly for additional information.
The majority of the everyday work at the Farm2Market farm is performed by APC residents. Farm2Market offers a paid on-the-job training program (OJT) for up to 12 APC residents in partnership with the APC Workforce Development program. We use farm production, produce sales, managing volunteer groups, and practicing personal accountability to give our trainees a wide range of transferable skills.
Being a Farm2Market OJT offers more than employment skills. Farm OJTs regularly report that their experience provided opportunities to try new foods and experiment with new ways of cooking. Many of the farm’s OJT graduates also use the leadership skills they develop to become formal and informal grassroots educators to build a healthier community.
