The American River Ranch farm stand gives its customers a real country experience in the city! There is an abundance of organic fruits and vegetables from our fields, as well as fresh produce from other local farms. Customers find seasonal crops such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, potatoes, basil, lettuce, kale, chard, carrots, beets, turnips, radishes, garlic, corn, winter squash, pumpkins, cherries, strawberries and more.
Hand crafted farm products are available from other local growers. Pastries from Magpie Cafe, fair-trade Equal Exchange coffee, and other beverages are for sale every Saturday. Visitors sit and chat with new and old friends, meet the farmers who grew their food, and wander the fields of the American River Ranch, observing our farm animals and enjoying the rural setting.
The farm stand is an important direct marketing training component of our Apprenticeship and Green Youth Jobs programs. Check out our Calendar
to see the educational community activities that are also taking place at the farm stand each week!
Everyone is encouraged to bike or walk to the ranch and bring a shopping bag.
Use your food dollars to vote for healthy food, healthy families and healthy land. Every dollar spent at the farm stand supports the work of Soil Born Farms Urban Agriculture & Education Project.
