What We Do

Farm Fresh Fest

Farm Fresh Fest is back!

Although Farm Fresh in the Fast Lane was a huge success last year, we’re excited to share that this summer we’re bringing back community partners and inviting our neighbors to browse the Fest and all that our community has to offer! 

Farm Fresh Fest is a celebration of our community and an opportunity for neighbors to receive fresh, in-season produce in a safe, inclusive, and welcoming atmosphere. This seasonal series includes produce stands, food samples, health and wellness education, games, and connections to community resources and businesses. 

Each week, the partnerships and activities available will be centered around a theme. Farm Fresh Fest will take place at CEAP from 4pm-6pm on the following Wednesdays: 

  • July 13: PlayStrong 
  • July 27: BeStrong 
  • August 10: GrowStrong 
  • August 24: LearnStrong 
  • September 7: WorkStrong 
  • October 5: MinnesotaStrong 

Farm Fresh Fest is being generously sponsored by Allina Health Systems, Osseo Lions Club, North Memorial Hospital, Hennepin Healthcare-Brooklyn Park Clinic, and UCare. We are so grateful for their partnership and commitment to growing a stronger community by creating access to healthy food and community connections! 

All of our neighbors are welcome at Farm Fresh Fest, and advance registration is not required. 

You can help us share joy, equity, and health this summer by volunteering at Farm Fresh Fest or making a donation to sponsor a pallet of produce. Please contact katy.briggs@ceap.com for more information.
