We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. – Howard Zinn
New York City-based Farm To People has a simple mission: to make it easier to discover and buy from small-batch artisan producers.
They seek to build a better food system by finding growers and makers who use traditional and sustainable methods and connecting them with customers. To achieve this goal, Farm to People has a multitude of creative outlets. They offer a CSA-like produce delivery service in the NYC area with available staple add ons like meat, dairy, fish, baked goods, and pantry items. They also have a robust online shop featuring a carefully curated selection of pantry goods, gift boxes, and specialty beverages.
To connect with the community and offer an IRL experience, Farm To People sets up pop-up shops. Specifically, they had a section at the New York Times Food Festival in October and more recently opened their second annual Holiday Market. The latter is a super cozy temporary shop set up in Bryant Park, packed with all their favorite small-batch, artisanal goodies. We are so honored to be a part of their selection online and at these pop-ups!
