Brick Street Farms, the boutique, artisan urban farm that offers hyper-fresh produce grown in the heart of The Grand Central District, is to launch a farm share membership program in August.
For $695 a year – or $13 a week – residents will be able to cycle to the farm, which is conveniently sandwiched between the Pinellas Trail and a Coast Bike Share hub, every other Saturday for their bi-weekly box of leafy greens and herbs.
Even in its urban setting, Brick Street’s production is year-round. Produce is grown vertically in a portable, controlled environment that minimizes and eliminates waste, pesticide use, and resource depletion, while maximizing taste, nutrition, and yield. Everything is harvested as it’s needed, meaning members will enjoy the freshest of picks.
You’ve likely already tasted the fruits of owners Shannon O’Malley and Brad Doyle’s labors. Brick Street Farms already services the Vinoy, Stillwaters Tavern, Bella Brava, The Reading Room, Don Cesar and Brick & Mortar.
Interested residents are encouraged to sign up for the farm’s mailing list, as membership sales will be limited.
