SAN FRANCISCO — California Farmers’ Markets Association, the non-profit that operates the Farmers’ Market at Fort Mason Center has recently partnered with a new organization called Farm to Flat. Farm to Flat was formed by 3 neighbors in the Marina to start a program to deliver farm fresh produce from the Farmers’ Market to those unable to attend the biweekly farmers’ market. Farm to Flat currently serves neighbors in the Marina, Cow Hollow and Russian Hill districts. Farm to Flat is working closely with several farmers who regularly attend the Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market. The program offers fresh fruits and vegetables, baked breads, preserves, hummus, eggs, fish, pastured chicken and more! Items can be pre-ordered on the Farm to Flat website, FarmtoFlat.com for curbside pick-up or doorstep delivery on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Founders of Farm to Flat say, “The idea for this service was born from the realization that it could bring together a few elements we really care about. First, supporting independent local farms and businesses, ones that already serve our neighborhood. Second, developing a service that is personal and local to our neighborhood. And third, extending the reach of our local Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market, which for years has served as an energizing Sunday gathering place connecting our community with local farms. We are just beginning this effort, and it is very much a “neighborhood” project, so please check back often as we continue to bring more items and better capabilities to this service. We enjoy helping those in the neighborhood unable to navigate the market, are home bound or are unable to leave their homes due to COVID19.”
The California Farmers’ Markets Association is thrilled at the opportunity to expand the Farmers Market to those with limited access to fresh food during the Shelter-in-Place Order. Customers can stay up to date on the latest market news via websites, CaFarmersMkts.com or FarmtoFlat.com.
