UD Fresh to You

UD garden offers local, student-picked produce to the community on Fridays

Members of the University of Delaware community searching for local, sustainable, student-grown and handpicked produce need look no further than UD Fresh to You, a garden managed using organic practices and located on UD’s South Campus in Newark.

Located off Route 896 near the University’s Townsend Hall — next to the former Girl Scouts building and across from the historic farmhouse, UD Fresh to You is open every Friday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. with an assortment of locally grown seasonal produce.

UD Fresh to You supports various food security projects within the local community and sells produce to local restaurants, such as House of William and Merry, the student-run Vita Nova restaurant on campus, Grain on Main, Platinum Dining Group (with restaurants such as Taverna and Red Fire Grill steakhouse), Goat Kitchen and Bar, Ulysses gastropub and Newark Natural Foods.

Student interns work at the garden every summer and play a vital role in every aspect of managing and maintaining the garden.

Produce available this week from UD Fresh to You includes:

• Slicers, Saladette and cherry tomatoes (limited quantities of cherry tomatoes)

• Poblano peppers

• Tomatillos

• Jalapeño peppers

• Cayenne peppers 

• Hungarian hot wax peppers

• Okra
