Part of our work here at Fresh Start Farms is improving food access in our community through a number of food access programs. Our colleagues Savitri and April are running the Mobile Market this summer which is having great success, and colleague Marta has been continuing to lead the Fresh Choice Manchester Program!

Fresh Choice Manchester makes it feasible for corner stores in the area to sell fresh fruits and vegetables, since many folks have to walk pretty far to get to a grocery store. We added a second cohort of three new stores this May and all three did a great job! Two will be continuing and have had great success so far: TMC Convenience and LaBonne Semence! Torrance Crawford runs TMC on the West Side and is excited to be able to provide fresh produce to customers without needing to buy full cases of items. Esther runs an African market that is stocked with specialty items like spices, salted fish, cassava flour, and so much more!  She loves being able to get items like sawa sawa and amaranth from our Fresh Start Farmers because for many of her customers, it reminds them of their home countries. In total, the Fresh Choice Program has four participating corner stores and we hope to onboard three more in the coming year.

of the Week

Grilled Chicken and Eggplant With Mozzarella and Tomatoes

Try this Recipe from Martha Stewart: “As the tomato vines burst forth with the vibrant and versatile summer fruit, let them land on this plate of chicken-and-eggplant “caprese.” This riff on the beloved Italian salad adds grilled chicken breast, grilled eggplant, kalamata olives, and fresh parsley but the tomatoes remain the stars. They add acidity and a burst of freshness with each bite of this satisfying salad dinner.”


Pantry Items

Dairy Items

Vault No. 5 from Jasper Hill Farm


This is a cave-aged cheddar that is made with pasteurized cow’s milk from the Cabot Cooperative. It is aged in Jasper Hill’s unique underground vaults for 8-12 months and is made with unique Alpine-style cultures to create sweet, nutty flavors as well as a more pliant, meltable texture.

The sweet-savory balance of the cheese makes it an excellent match with smoky cured meats, apple preserves, or rich chestnut honey. Pair with a dry sparkling cider or a dark lager. It’s meltability makes Vault No. 5 a perfect contender for sandwiches like a French Dip.


Protein Items
