We’re thrilled that the San Diego Union-Tribune featured our pay-what-you-can Farm Stand!

“The produce stand at Coastal Roots farm offered a colorful array of organic fruits and vegetables on Thursday, with heirloom tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers and other goods, all at market prices — unless you can’t afford it,” the article begins. “In that case, the fresh-picked veggies are available for whatever you can manage. The Encinitas farm, which gained organic certification last month, offers its produce on a pay-what-you-can basis.

‘We want to make sure anyone who comes to the farm stand is able to take what they need and pay whatever they are able,’ said Sara Telzer, social enterprise manager for the farm.”

Thanks to the Union-Tribune for highlighting the Farm Stand and our mission to provide healthy, local, and organic food to our community. Read the full article HERE.
