Vendor Profile – Ferndale Farms

Ferndale Farms is a small mixed vegetable farm located in Mission offering produce through the Mission City Farmers Market and our CSA. What’s a CSA you ask? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture where customers pay for a weekly box of local produce for pick-up from the farm or the Mission City Farmers Market over the summer. CSAs are a great way to support your local farmers and grow the local economy. Their CSA runs for 16 weeks starting in July and ending in October. We offer three different share sizes and a variety of vegetable that change with the season. For more information click here. e-mail your questions to email@example.com.
