City Fresh is many things. For you, it’s a weekly crop of just-picked local fruits and vegetables distributed by volunteers at your neighborhood Fresh Stop – at affordable prices! It’s a network bringing the bounty of local farms directly to the city and close suburbs. It’s a way for you to get healthy, super fresh food while guaranteeing markets for small farmers and experiencing the richness of the local growing season. It also reduces the gas and money used to get produce from farm to table.
A non-profit organization, City Fresh promotes a more sustainable food system in Northeast Ohio. Initiated by the New Agrarian Center, we are a movement of volunteers, farmers, youth and community members committed to local food and health in our community.
At the Coventry Fresh Stop, we take pride in the involvement of our community and the family-friendly environment our location and volunteers provide. We seek to build community through the sharing of work, food, recipes, and stories. This year, we've begun this blog to help our shareholders reach out to one another and have ready access to the information, recipes, and stories we give and take in person each Tuesday.
Please join us on the culinary adventure starting Tuesday, June 14th and running until October 25th from 5-7 pm at the Coventry Road Library 1925 Coventry Road, Cleveland Heights, Ohio, 44118.
