Fathers Farm and Farmers Market

button (1) Mt. Carmel Farmers Market was established to offer fresh, healthy food to the Far Eastside Community.  The Father’s Farm which is located on the grounds of Mt. Carmel Church, plants and grows organic vegetables and fruits.  The farm is maintained by the members of the church with assistance from the community.  The church works in conjunction with hired farmers to prepare the ground for the growing season.  Church members, along with community support, work together to plant, nurture, and harvest.

The Mt. Carmel Farmers Market is a monthly market held on the church grounds during the growing season, to provide easy access to the Fathers Farm fresh produce.  Mt. Carmel Farmers Market also invites local farmers and establishments to come alongside in providing easy access to fresh, healthy, and affordable foods.
