What's Fresh in the Farm Market
Personal Shopping and Public Shopping Hours
Hello 21 Acres family,

Nearly every day from June through September, I eat a big, beautiful bowl of fruit from the Farm Market with breakfast. This morning I brought something else to the breakfast table with me: my ballot.

As I ate, I thought about the hands that grew my food. At 21 Acres, we often say that our goal is to "keep farmers farming." We fix the things that are broken, keep our land healthy and productive, and tend to the well-being of the people whose labor powers our food system. 

Voting is one way that we can work towards that goal on a societal scale. It isn't a one-and-done solution to all of the world's problems, and it certainly isn't equally accessible to all people. However, what voting does do is determine the conditions in which we engage and organize in our communities. Voting can help build a world where it is more productive to fight for climate action, education, social justice, and public health.

We have lots of beautiful produce for you this week, including the season's first plums, peppers, tomatillos, and freestone peaches. Stop by and see us, but don't forget to fill out your ballot first—so we can all continue to enjoy the fruits of our farmers' labor.

Thanks for your support!

Don't Forget to Vote!

Ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday, August 4th. Go vote this week, then mention this coupon to receive 10% off in the Farm Market!

Valid for personal shopping and in-person orders between 7/29 and 8/1. Limit one per customer.
