Operating a grocery store and co-op food share, Urban Acres partners with more than 25 local farms to connect conscientious consumers with local organic goods. Through enrollment in the co-op produce share, members pick up a treasure-trove of local produce every other Saturday from one of 12 drop off locations. After they receive their introductory half share (about 15 pounds of produce), members must pre-pay for each additional share every two weeks ($30/half share; $50/full share). Aside from access to co-op produce, memberships include discounted in-store purchases and exclusive product offers.

Urban Acres

Part-time personal chef Steven Bailey was growing tired of bland, industrially processed food. As detailed by D Magazine, Steven was determined to do something about his frustration, so he hit the road one weekend in his Volkswagen Rabbit and began scouring Texas farms and markets for fresher ingredients. The more organic, locally grown food he brought back, the more friends and neighbors started requesting some for themselves. The growing demand led Steven to start Urban Acres, where customers can track down organic produce, dairy, and grass-fed meats from local farmers and artisans who never use pesticides, hormones, artificial flavoring, or shoddy magnetic force fields.

As a member of Urban Acres, members pick large, medium, or small shares of organic fruits and veggies, as well as meat, coffee, and granola shares if desired. Urban Acres also sells locally grown grub to members and nonmembers alike at its Oak Cliff Farmstead, which D Magazine says "brings a bit of country to the big city." There, visitors can find shelves and counters fashioned from reclaimed wood, a bee colony on the roof, and produce snuggled in boxes of hay. Urban Acres also offers hands-on educational opportunities to learn about small-scale urban farming.
