Food-Focused Houston Charity Takes its Urban Farm to the Streets
Working to provide healthier food options and a better understanding and appreciation of healthy eating and ingredients since 2005, Recipe For Success Foundation is taking to the streets with fresh, local produce. The organization operates Hope Farms on seven acres just south of City Hall and is introducing Hope Farms Rolling Green Market, a pop-up that is appearing at retail stores and other venues across Houston. The foundation also offers farm share deliveries on Tuesdays and customers can also visit the farm on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Rolling Green Market pop-up runs every Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. at Bering’s Galleria location at 6201 Westheimer and every Friday at Tootsie’s at 2601 Westheimer. The selection includes not only an assortment of freshly harvested produce but also locally sourced specialties such as HIVE Bee Farm honey, fresh flowers from local florist Flower Child and a rotating list of Hope Farms merchandise. Fresh produce lovers can pre-order online before visiting the rolling pop-up or simply peruse on site, twice a week while also visiting two of Houston’s favorite locally based stores.
Recipe For Success CEO and Founder Gracie Cavnar says that making it easier for Houstonians both to support the farm and enjoy the fresh produce was one of her New Year’s resolutions. “We are delighted to make it easier for Houstonians to eat more fresh veggies in 2021,” she said. “With our Farm Share deliveries on Tuesdays, Bering’s on Thursdays, Tootsies on Fridays and our own on-site Farm Stand on Saturdays, you have four opportunities a week to get your hands on locally grown food within hours of its harvest. What could be more delicious than that?”
