During normal times, we present cooking demos on Saturday mornings. The free presentation features an easy-to-prepare, delicious dish using a veggie available at market that day that may be unfamiliar to many. It’s a great opportunity to try something new. The demo is fun for all ages and we often recruit a sous chef from the spectators for a little more hands-on experience.
Cook the Harvest Classes are offered on First Saturdays, each with a special theme and prices for adults or families to participate. Often, we host a celebrity chef teacher to add to the fun. These classes are limited in size and must be booked in advance. Though presently suspended, we look forward to welcoming you back to class soon. See Classes for more details.
Zeenath Selvakumar, one of our Founding S.P.I.C.E. members, normally conducts a free yoga class each Saturday morning. Everyone is welcome to join her. We have a collection of mats, thanks to the Give Back Yoga Foundation, but you are free to bring your own and join in. To honor social distancing guidelines, Zeenath’s yoga is now streamed from the farm using Facebook Live on Saturday mornings at 10:00.
On the first Saturday of each month, we traditionally host additional vendors offering movement classes, crafts, and prepared food to extend the fun from 9:00 a.m. to noon. You never know what delicious treasure you will discover at Hope Farms First Saturdays. We look forward to resuming First Saturday festivities when it is no longer a threat to public health.
Produce is harvested immediately before our markets, so you are getting the freshest food possible and you won’t believe the difference in flavors. To best serve our customers during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have added an online ordering system and adapted our market to a drive-through system. You don’t have to order in advance to buy our just-harvested fruits and veggies-but here is the LINK in case you want to.
Though they have been suspended due to COVID19, our Hope Farms Gardener normally offers free Gardening Classes to members of the Hope Farms Community Garden and others each Saturday morning at 9:00 and teaches a regular weekly schedule of themed garden classes for both children and adults. These classes are limited in size and must be booked in advance. See Classes for more details.
