Grow A Row

Every year, dozens of farmers and gardeners plant and grow an extra row for donation. Loving Spoonful volunteers deliver this harvest directly to more than 40 local agencies and 18 Fresh Food Market Stands in our community, creating thousands of healthy meals each growing season.

Join us! If you have an extra row or patch in your garden, plant some seeds and grow for your community.


Come visit us from June through October at the following locations:

  • Downtown Kingston Public Market: Saturday 1–5 pm

  • Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market: Sunday 9 am – 2 pm

  • Sydenham Street United Church (right side door):

    • Tues & Fri 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

    • Wed & Thurs 10:00 am - 12 noon

BONUS: The Rideau 1000 Island Master Gardeners often staff our Saturday Kingston Public Market booth – just to answer all of your tricky gardening questions. We’re so happy to partner with them. So stop by – bring questions, vegetables or just your friendly hellos!

If you are interested in volunteering as a Grow A Row Market Booth Ambassador, running the Loving Spoonful booth at the markets, collecting donated produce and engaging market-goers, click here to join the team!

We are really glad to have Loving Spoonful doing the great work that they are doing. There is always a certain amount of seconds at the end of the market day. To organize the reclamation and distribution of seconds is beyond our means as farmers. It is wonderful to have Loving Spoonful provide an essential service that bridges the gap between farmers to local meal programs. To see perishable produce that is left over at the end of the market day be distributed directly to people and not go to waste is so valuable.
