Omaha Community Bicycle Repair Shop

The Omaha Community Bicycle Shop is located at 525 Webster Street, very close to 33rd and California Street and only two miles west of downtown Omaha. All proceeds coming from produce sales will be put into the community bicycle shop. Durring the growing months we grow a wide selection of seasonal vegetables, herbs, cut flowers and a few fruits. All of our crops are grown organically. We are looking forward to expanding our crops to include a much wider selection of vegetables, fruits, and nuts...as well as eggs.

We are currently accepting new customers. Deliveries are made on Sunday afternoons and are available either weekly or bi-weekly.

Our delivery area is limited to the central Omaha area. Contact us to see if we make deliveries to your neighborhood. If we are unable to deliver, boxes are available for pickup at our bicycle shop.

We only require monthly commitments. Four weekly deliveries are $100 and two bi-weekly deliveries are $50. If you are going to be out of town we ask that you arrange for a friend/neighbor to pickup the box or alternatively we can provide the box to a local food bank.

Boxes contain approximately 1 bushel of seasonal produce and usually consist of 10-15 items. Produce included in boxes changes weekly depending on time of season. Below is a listing of what will be included in the August.

Beets- Golden and Chiogga

Rainbow Swiss Chard

Zucchini

Squash

Bag of Spring Lettuce mix

Bag of Baby Arugula

Peas – Sugar Snap Snow and English Peas

Cucumbers

Fresh Cut Flowers

Around the first week in August we will begin harvesting a wide assortment of tasty tomatoes (slicing, salad, grape, cherry and pear), hot and not-so-hot peppers (red, green, white, yellow, purple and orange). and various types of cucumbers. We also have several types squash, zucchini, snap beans, sweet corn, New Zealand spinach, fresh cut flowers, and different types of eggplant. Herbs include sweet basil, rosemary and lemon grass.

We also have eggs. The hens are raised cage free and are fed a healthy diet of crushed grains, vegetable trimmings and grass, along with supplemental feed. The eggs have a beautiful bright orange yolk and a rich taste. Three of our chicken breeds originate from Europe and lay dark brown and speckled eggs. We also have pure bred Ameraucanas from Tennessee which lay light blue eggs. When available a dozen fresh eggs can also be added to deliveries for $4.

If you are interested in home deliveries or Saturday box pickups please give us a call or send an e-mail. We also frequently give tours of our urban backyard garden. Thanks for supporting local organic agriculture! Sincerely,

Omaha Bicycle Repair Shop, Gifford Park Community Garden and various local growers.
