Myrtle Avenue Community Farm Stand

This is a great idea, and I can't wait to see it.

The Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project (MARP) will be launching a community-run farm stand to be held every Thursday in front of the Ingersoll Community Center (177 Myrtle Avenue) from 4pm-7pm from July 8th through October 28th. The farm stand will be staffed by three youth and two elders from the neighborhood, and will bring local produce to the western end of Myrtle Avenue to help address the lack of fresh food in the area. The Myrtle Avenue Farm Stand is part of the Myrtle Eats Fresh program, a food access initiative funded by the Community Experience Partnership, a collaboration between New York Community Trust, Atlantic Philanthropies, and United Neighborhood Houses.

For more information on the Myrtle Eats Fresh program visit our blog at OR contact Kassy Nystrom at 718.230.1689 /

We hope to see you there!
