Pick Your Own Basket (Farm pickup - Every Thursday)

Every Tuesday afternoon, The Talking Farm selects seasonal, sustainably-grown vegetables from its urban farm in Skokie to sell to the public at our virtual farmstand. All you have to do is purchase your selections in this online store by 8 am on Thursday, and your produce will be packaged and ready for pickup at the Howard Street Farm any time between 10 am and 7 pm on Thursday. Pickup is contactless.

~Selections change weekly~

Pickup site:

3669 Howard Street (west of McCormick, behind the Tot Learning Center).

Park in the Tot Learning Center lot and walk up to the farm for pickup.


When do PYOB selections go on sale? 

PYOB selections are announced on Tuesday of every week and go on sale as soon after Farmer Matt harvests vegetables. As the vegetables are based on the week's harvest, selections change weekly. We email to our newsletter list and post on Facebook and Instagram with the selections on Tuesday afternoon along with a link on to our virtual farmstand. If you'd like to receive our emails, sign up here.

I noticed you sell out quickly.

Currently, inventory is limited but we expect it to increase as the summer progresses and more vegetables come into season.
