Every bag has nine varieties of just-picked organic produce from farms within 50 miles of Louisville. There are various times for pickups almost every day. The markets are in full swing and run every other week until October 29th. There are also opportunities to volunteer. Please call 502-509-6770 to sign up for your shares (bags). The deadline to sign up and pay for your shares (bags) is always the Friday before the next week's markets. Review here for more details.

    Households seeking assistance should call their nearest Neighborhood Place location. Those locations are closed to walk-ins but will have drop boxes available to leave verification documents required for getting assistance.  To be eligible for support, individuals/households must be Jefferson County residents with an income at or below 100 percent of Area Median Income (AMI), which is determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The AMI for the Louisville region is $76,400 for a four-person family (100 percent AMI).


    Applicants will be asked to offer proof of identity and supporting documents that demonstrate a loss of earned income due to the COVID-19 pandemic due to medical reasons, business closure, or school closure.
