Vehicle for Change

Since 1976 we’ve been building a sustainable & equitable food system that supports healthy people, animals and the environment. When you spend your dollars at The Patch, you contribute to a thriving local economy and a kinder, more resilient world.

We’ve grown to Auburn!

We did it! We are now open in Auburn at 2505 Bell Rd. Our fresh and local produce can’t be beat, and you’ll love our super fresh deals and food demos too.

Organic & Delicious.

We support Fair Trade and Certified Organic producers and work closely with local farmers to plan crop production and to help ensure their financial stability. We’re building a delicious food movement, one bite at a time!

Join for the Perks,
Stay for the Purpose.

Owner and Volunteer Discounts, Voting Rights, e-Receipts and Patronage Dividends – what’s not to like? Plus, our owners get that warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from belonging to a business that does good things.

Flowers & Starts

“Our philosophy guides us on a daily basis. We have pride in what we produce and how we produce it. Yet we continue to learn how we can better contribute to the community while supporting ourselves. Mother Nature and our local economy keep us on our toes, while our philology guides us into the future,” said Deena Miller who farms three acres with her partner, Robbie Martin.
