Welcome to Urban Acres Produce's Online Market!
To fulfill our mission of addressing health disparities in low-income Wilmington, Delaware communities, we have created a new way to build equity in our local food system. We provide delivery of fresh produce via our Farm Share box that allows customers to receive farm-fresh produce at their chosen frequency by a sliding scale cost. When you participate, you are creating a better food system that allows access to the same high-quality, fresh foods for everyone! In addition, we are committed to supporting small businesses. We source from local farmers in Delaware and nearby.
What is an Urban Acres' Farm Share?
- Seasonal, mostly locally grown selection of fresh produce curated by our experts.
- Farm Shares are delivered directly to you at your chosen frequency (subscribed weekly and bi-weekly and single purchase) and location within our delivery zone.
- At this time, we choose the selection, but we want you to love your share and are willing to make accommodations.
- Check out our products page and purchase additional items that you would like (subscribed or single purchase)!
- Farm Shares are delivered in reusable totes that you return to us, by reducing the waste we are further benefiting the community.
