Hope Farms Adds to Weekly Farm Stand Offerings on Saturdays 9 a.m. to Noon
Grow Local, Eat Local
Hope Farms is located at 10401 Scott Street
*Drive-through service only for both advance & on-site orders
Hope Farms, a Recipe for Success Foundation program, has added new, local products to its weekly farm stand to ensure that tasty affordable food choices are available and accessible to Houstonians. The go-to for fresh, seasonal produce, Hope Farms is now also offering a curated selection of local foods that they will continue to expand weekly.
Located minutes from downtown Houston just south of Loop 610, Hope Farms is a model for urban agriculture using organic methods to generate healthy food, harvested in season.
Hope Farms’ produce customers are not only choosing to consume sustainable produce, but they are contributing to the Foundation to ensure that it can continue to serve as a critical resource for all Houstonians – especially those marooned in food deserts without good access to fresh, affordable food. In addition to selling its own produce, eggs, books and memorabilia, the market will now also sell honey, pasta and pizzas and handmade items by collaborators.
Customers can order online in advance for pick-up or arrive and select from the drive-through menu on Saturday mornings from 9 to noon. In observance of COVID 19 best practices, customers are now asked to remain in their cars. Though credit and debit cards are preferred, SNAP cards and cash are also accepted. Customers can simply scan the reader board from their car to make their selections or order online advance by Friday at noon and their purchase will be ready when they arrive.
In keeping with its mission to make affordable food more available in the city’s food deserts, Hope Farms extends neighbor discounts to those who live in the neighboring zip codes of 77033, 77045, 77047, 77048 and 77051.
SNAP card users also benefit from the Double Bucks program, getting 2 for 1 on their purchases.

Hope Farms is a 7-acre urban farm operated by Recipe for Success Foundation as one of the non-profit’s programs to teach, inspire and empower healthy. Hope Farms and Recipe for Success Foundation principally rely on donations, special events and grants to continue operations. Especially critical in these uncertain times, produce purchases supplement dwindling philanthropic gifts and cancelled fundraisers.
