Farmstand

From spring through fall, visitors can shop at our Seasonal Farmstands at Queens Farm, Jamaica Hospital, and Queens Borough Hall to stock up on a rich assortment of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers grown in our fields. For the off-site farmstands Queens Farm produce travels less than 9 miles from field to Farmstand, which means fresher food with a higher nutritional value, minimizing our carbon footprint. Queens Farm produce is Certified Naturally Grown – the farm does NOT use pesticides, herbicides, or chemicals of any kind.*

Shopping at our Farmstand is a wonderful way to learn about which foods grow in your climate, connecting to the seasonality of plants. In the late springtime you can expect to see offerings like peas, carrots, leafy greens and asparagus. The summer features longer-season crops like tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. Then, fall brings autumn delights like Honeynut and Kabocha squash. Our small team of dedicated farmers is involved in every aspect of our growing operation – from propagating crops; to maintaining our fields; to harvesting and preparing items for market; and selling directly to our customers. We look forward to answering any questions that arise about our produce and our practices. 

*Please note that we do carry select items that are grown locally at partner NY State farms which may use conventional growing methods. Just ask our farmers if you’d like to know which items these are.

Please note:

  • Product availability may vary based on seasonality, weather patterns & Mother Nature.
  • We accept cash, credit, debit, EBT/SNAP, FMNP, WIC, Health Bucks and Fresh Connect at our Farmstand. Contactless payment methods preferred.
  • Please bring your own reusable bag.
