Plant Chicago is partnering with The Urban Canopy to distribute Link Produce Boxes to our neighbors on the southwest side. Our office in Back of the Yards will be a pick up site for Link card holders to pick up boxes of produce, which means these purchases also qualify for Link Match.*
Requesting a Link Produce Box
Notify Plant Chicago staff that you’d like to request a Link Produce Box for pick up at least one week before you intend to pick up. To reserve your first box, please email email@example.com, or call our office at 773-847-5523. Returning customers can order through our Square store.
Picking Up a Link Produce Box
Pick up is offered every Saturday from 12pm – 2pm at Plant Chicago’s office (4459 S. Marshfield Ave). Please ring the doorbell or knock on the green door on 45th when you arrive and one of our staff members will bring the box to the door. For your safety, please do not come inside the building, we are working to limit exposure.
Our staff is working to flatten the curve! Please, stay home if you’re sick, only send one person to pick up, practice good hygiene, wear a mask and gloves, and keep a distance of 6ft from others while picking up the box.
The retail value of these boxes is $40. Link customers will only have $20 come off their Link card due to the Link Match* program. Limit one box per household per week.
Boxes are a mix of local and non local produce. Depending on the week, there will be a few options specialty items available to add on to your box.
*Link Match is funded by Experimental Station’s Link Up Illinois program.
This program will run as long as funding is available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in donating to support this program.
Thanks to Link Match, customers get $40 of produce for $20! Pictured above if what was in the first week’s box. Customers can expect a similar assortment of produce in their box, subject to slight change each week depending on what is available.
Pictured above is: onions, parsnips, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, avocados, oranges, mandarins, pears, mushrooms, lettuce, spinach, peppers and dried red beans.
Email email@example.com or call 773-847-5523 to order your first box.
Please note that these Link Produce Boxes are available for Illinois Link card holders only and access to the boxes will be prioritized for residents of Back of the Yards and surrounding southwest side communities. If you do not fit these criteria, and are looking for produce from local sources, check out our online farmers market.
