Welcome to “Farm to Flat”. We are grateful to be working with you, and for your support of the Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market and the local Northern California farms that supply it.
The idea for this service was born from the realization that it could bring together a few elements we really care about. First, supporting independent local farms and businesses, ones that have a story to tell. Second, developing a service that is personal and local to our neighborhood. And third, extending the reach of our local Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market, which for years has served as an energizing Sunday gathering place connecting our community with local farms and businesses.
In addition, we think this service can be especially helpful now, when the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19 have changed the way communities can come together. While grocery stores struggle with food supply, there is an abundance of food available through our local farmers, and Farm to Flat is working to get it to you safely and efficiently, and hopefully inject some fun energy along the way as well.
We are just beginning this effort, and it is very much a “neighborhood” project, so please check back often as we continue to bring more items and better capabilities to this service.
We’d like to thank our partners in this effort, in particular the team and organization behind the Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market and our participating farms and businesses:
