Iron Roots Urban Farm, a project of the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation, is a 1.7 acre working farm and training center located at 820 Canfield Road on the south side of Youngstown. Iron Roots Urban Farm grows fresh produce in an urban neighborhood, encourages business creation on vacant land, helps city residents develop successful microenterprises with the goal of creating jobs, and teaches neighbors about growing food and healthy lifestyles.
Want to improve your diet and support urban agriculture? Produce can be purchased from Iron Roots on Friday and Saturday afternoons (from the kitchen) and at the Idora Neighborhood Farmers' Market (4:30-7pm, June-September, 2600 Glenwood Avenue), the Northside Farmers' Market (10am-1pm, February-December, 818 Elm), and through the Lake to River Co-op at laketoriver.org.
