Prescott Farmer’s Market

 Fresh Food Boxes

We have our online shop up and running with market items to purchase for pick up. Please only purchase what you need so that many people can take advantage of this opportunity. Our goal is to do this weekly at the least, so if things sell out, we’ll have round 2 next week.

Purchases must be completed by 12:00pm THURSDAYS in order to be picked up on SATURDAYS.

***SNAP/EBT Customers: please visit the site and then call 928-713-1227 with your order. Since we can’t process your EBT card over the phone, you’ll be able to pay in person, but we need to get your order ahead of time.

Please share this link with anyone you know who may need fresh vegetables. Thank you for your patience as we figure out this new system!

These are uncertain and trying times. Sections of the grocery store are empty and we’re required to wait and see what news the next day will bring. It’s also a time to reflect on the systems that support us. While a trip to the grocery store may make you feel uneasy, our local food system is strong and resilient. Rest assured that PFM farmers are just down the road ready to feed YOU.

Prescott Farmers Market  cares deeply about the health of this community, which is why our standard Saturday market will be closed for the next two weeks: Saturday March 21 and March 28.

Don’t despair! Closing the market was a difficult decision, but we are committed to finding alternative means to get local food from your farmers to YOU! PFM’s mission has always been to support and expand local agriculture, cultivate a healthy community and increase access to affordable local food.

The entire PFM team is working rapidly to implement new ways to get fresh food from local farmers and producers to you, our community, while staying vigilant for everyone’s utmost safety. Here’s what we’re working on in the next few days:

  1. Fresh Food Boxes
    In short, we hope to have a simple website up by early next week where you can choose from a selection of vegetable boxes and select add-ons such as eggs, beef, flowers etc. Then at a predetermined time and place, you would be able to come pick it up (you might not even have to get out of your car!)

  2. Emergency Food Distribution
    Ensuring that your friends, family, and neighbors who need it most are getting fresh produce is a top priority. This means purchasing fresh produce from local farmers and delivering it to food banks, school feeding sites, and other distribution sites already established in the community.

This community is one of caring, kind and generous people who want to take care of each other and I feel confident that we’ll get through this together. I’ve heard from many of you that you want to help your neighbors: the families living paycheck-to-paycheck with parents who are no longer allowed to go to work; senior citizens who are now homebound to protect themselves; the farmers who rely on the weekly farmers market for their entire income.
