What is gleaning? Gleaning is going over a field or area that has just been harvested and gathering by hand, any usable parts of the crop that remain. We do this at the Market too.
During the height of peak season, June through August, our Market vendors glean their leftover Market produce at the end of the day. Our Market volunteers gather the fresh goods from various vendors and prepare to deliver to community food hubs or help the Society of St. Andrews volunteers load-up the goods to deliver to area food pantries.
