Do You Live in Skokie or Evanston? Vegetable Box from the Talking Farm Howard Street Now Available

April 27, 2017 at 4:46 pm

There is local food and then there is hyper-local food, you can’t get more local if you live in Skokie or Evanston, other than growing it in your own garden, than by signing up for a Farm Box membership from The Talking Farm in Skokie.

The vegetables are grown at their Howard Street Farm, 3669 Howard Street right next to the TOT Learning Center. The Talking Farm has initiated a membership program which includes 2 cycles of a weekly vegetable box, Garden1 10 weeks starting May 21 through July 29 and Garden2 10 weeks starting July 30 through October 31. The only catch is that since this is the first year for the vegetable box offering, there are only 10 memberships available for each cycle and they are already half sold out as of this writing of Garden2 memberships. So basically this hyper-local option will not be available much longer so sign-up today!

A listing of the memberships and prices can be found on The Talking Farm’s website. The Talking Farm distributes to many of our favorite restaurants in Evanston, Boltwood, Farmhouse Evanston, Found, The Peckish Pig and Union Pizzeria and will be at the Evanston and Skokie Farmer’s Markets this summer. 

Here are pictures of some of the produce grown at the farm last summer and more details as to what will potentially be in the vegetable box are on The Talking Farm’s website.


Just don’t go local, go hyper-local!!
