Need Help Getting Food?

The Farm at St. Joe’s is currently partnering to help meet farm fresh local food needs in our community with the Ypsi Area Online Market. We are working with Lifestyle Medicine at St. Joe’s to provide weekly veggie box subscriptions through the Nutrition Buddies Research Program. 

Ypsi Area Online Market – is a collaboration between Growing Hope, The Farm at St. Joe’s, Zilke Farm Kitchen, and a growing list of area farmers and food producers.

The Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace pickup location is able to process EBT/SNAP and Double Up Food Bucks. With Double Up Food Bucks, when you spend $1 in EBT, you get $1 worth of FREE fruits and veggies!
