Shop Local, Eat Fresh!
Grow It Green Morristown is committed to creating more just, healthy and sustainable food systems. We are providing access to the freshest, local food grown using indigenous growing practices that protect our soil, air and water.
We manage the Early Street Community Garden and The Urban Farm and operate the Greenhouse at Saint Elizabeth University. We welcome you to experience a number of programs and initiatives to connect people with local food and the essential farmers that grow it. With 94 beds at the community garden, gardeners grow food, herbs and flowers. We also operate donation plots at the garden to put in the donation bin for the public.
Grow It Green plans, plants and harvests at The Urban Farm to donate fresh food to local community partners for distribution. Fresh produce from The Urban Farm is available at nourish.NJ, Interfaith Food Pantry Network, Table of Hope and at Newark Science & Sustainability. We provide vouchers for fresh produce to be chosen at farm stands without any fee directly to local residents as part of the Atlantic Heath Care Family Care & Guidance and Prenatal program.
We bring you the Morris Winter Farmers Market as well providing fresh food from a wide variety of local vendors. Farmers markets encourage spending your dollars locally in support of independent farmers, ranchers and makers. Get outside safely and shop this winter at Convent Train Station on Sundays starting Dec. 5th - Mar. 27th. Your food choices matter!
In 2021, foundation support made it possible to pilot a farmer apprenticeship program that helped expand who has access to the resources at the farm, to learn about sustainable agriculture and to build more equitable food systems. In 2022, we have demand for this position again! Food access and nutritional equity are complicated issues that require local solutions. Donate now and strengthen our local food systems.

We are an official retailer for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps at the Urban Farm Stand and the Winter Farmers Market.
Through the Garden State Good Food Network we offer Double Buck benefits for SNAP participants. This means DOUBLE the value of what you can get for SNAP dollars at our farm stand. Pick out twenty dollars worth of produce and purchase it for only ten SNAP dollars! This program is supported by Garden State Good Food Network, and City Green.
