FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — AUG 13, 2014 –

Remember that little urban farm you read about that just sprang up at the corner of 5th and C streets in West Sacramento? You can now buy their Broderick-born produce direct at the Thursday afternoon farmers market in West Sacramento (item below). And you can also buy produce right at the farm site, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. EBT purchases can’t be accepted yet, but will be soon. The farm is sponsored by the Center for Land-Based Learning.

You can read more in our original article about the innovative farm here.
