We are working in Houston to establish a robust urban agriculture and local produce distribution system to ensure that tasty, affordable, fresh food choices are available to everyone. Our farm stand is open on Saturdays from 8:00 to Noon and we frequently host open farm events such as festivals and dinners.

Thanks to a generous seed grant from Wells Fargo Foundation and support from a diverse array of generous foundations -- including UnitedHealth Foundation, corporations and philanthropists, Hope Farms Showcase and Training Center is on 7 acres in the heart of Houston's historic Sunnyside neighborhood, in view of downtown skyscrapers. Hope Farms integrates growing, education and community engagement. Using organic methods to generate significant crops in the midst of one of the city's largest food deserts, we train U.S. military veterans to become new urban farmers, provide jobs and internships for neighborhood youth, and cooking and gardening classes for all Houstonians of every age. An on-site farm stand offers fresh produce, eggs and honey to neighbors near and far. We incubate our new farmers' urban farm businesses or connect them to good jobs in farming, empowering them to continue to serve their community and support their families.

Every Tuesday, my neighbor and I get super excited about our Recipe For Success farm share from Hope Farms. The produce we've received is beyond beautiful and very inspiring (in knowing the produce is also going to those in greater need and in stoking the desire to cook something new and delicious)....

Hands down the best produce I've had in Houston. Every week there is a new and ample array of veggies for me to cook, and they taste delicious. I love that it is all organic, and that I'm able to get fresh produce in the middle of the city! I definitely find that I'm spending less money per month on food getting my veggies here instead of at the grocery store, and I love experimenting with new varieties I would not have picked up on my own. So happy Hope Farms is here!
