At nearly six acres, the Ohio City Farm is one of the largest urban farms in the United States. The land is farmed by organizations such as Refugee Response and CMHA Green Team, which serve to empower refugees to become self-sufficient and provide hands-on training for public housing residents.

While much of the food grown there goes to local restaurants like Great Lakes Brewing and Flying Fig, an even greater amount is sold directly to retail shoppers at the Ohio City Farm Stand, a shipping container turned retail spot designed by LAND studio. The stand sells straight-from-the-farm produce like leafy greens, fresh herbs, beets, kohlrabi, garlic, peppers, tomatoes and various types of summer squash.

The stand accepts cash and credit cards, but also Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) and EBT, ensuring that all community members have access to fresh, healthy food options.



The farm stand is now open Saturdays 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through November. It is located at the corner of West 24th and Bridge, right by Market Garden Brewery’s production facility.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
