Fresh produce is indeed now available at the Fremont Main parking lot on Wednesdays, from noon to 4 p.m. This started on June 5.
One day in the not so distant future, you’ll be visiting the Fremont Main Library and leaving with a bag full of library items and another bag of fresh produce. Fremont Main is entering into a partnership with Dig Deep Farms and Produce, a social enterprise and a project of the Alameda County Deputy Sheriffs’ Activities League. The Dig Deep Farms website describes a weekly delivery service of fresh produce; the partnership with Fremont Main Library is a pilot project that will bring Dig Deep produce stands once a week to consumers for the first time. That those first produce stands will be on library grounds certainly says something of Fremont Main’s role in our community. So how about that? With one trip to the library, you will be taking home food for the mind as well as food for the body. It certainly is a good deal to look forward to. You’ll know when it’s here.
