Growing a Relational Food Economy in the Hudson Valley
Random Harvest envisions a relational food economy in the Hudson Valley where food builds bridges towards a generous, just, and nourished community.
Random Harvest is a worker-owned neighborhood market, cafe, and community space that: provides food and goods sourced directly from farmers and producers; brings together diverse community for shared work, sustenance, and learning; and uses models of exchange, pricing, and ownership to reflect the needs of workers, producers, and community members.
In order to fulfill this mission, Random Harvest:
Supports local farmers by selling their produce using a consignment based model with a high return to farmers
Creates a welcoming neighborhood gathering space
Provides a cafe featuring seasonal prepared foods, coffee drinks, and deli items
Offers food accessibility programs
Provides a certified kitchen for producers and community members
Coordinates diverse events in the upstairs community space
