Having successfully convinced my parents to subscribe to a CSA (community-supported agriculture), we headed to The Urban Farmer in Pompano Beach to pick up our first batch of goodies — eggplant, star fruit, arugula, and much more — all picked fresh on this post-industrial plot of land. More to come but just some preliminary photos of the tour we got from the very obliging father of Urban Farmer owner Jessica Padron.
Today, Saturday Oct. 30, from 8:30am to 3pm will be the official ribbon cutting and grand opening of The Urban Farmer. Stop by and support locally grown food in unlikely suburbia!
The Urban Farmer is located at 1730 N. Powerline Road, Pompano Beach, FL, on the east side of Powerline Road about a 1/2 mile south of Copans road.
