E3 Fathers Farm, Mobile Market and Food Pantry

Mt. Carmel Father’s Farm and Farmers Market

Mt. Carmel Farmers Market was established to offer fresh, healthy food to the Far Eastside Community.  The Father’s Farm which is located on the grounds of Mt. Carmel Church, plants and grows organic vegetables and fruits.  The farm is maintained by the members of the church with assistance from the community.  The church works in conjunction with hired farmers to prepare the ground for the growing season.  Church members, along with community support, work together to plant, nurture, and harvest.

Mt. Carmel Community Mobile Market Coming Soon!

The Community Mobile Market is a mobile grocery store that will provide a grocery shopping experience to a community void of grocery stores. The mobile market will provide access to fresh produce and grocery staples needed by the families who live within our community. The mobile market will provide a to-your-community shopping experience for those who do not have transportation and additional shopping assistance for the handicapped.
