Since 2008, City Fruit has stewarded and harvested fruit from public and private trees across Seattle to help make our food system more sustainable and just.
Free fresh, hyper-local fruit from our city's public and private orchards!
We’re excited to say that this year, we’re hosting 18 pop-ups and expanding the locations to include Ballard Community Center, Garfield Community Center, Delridge Farmers Market, High Point P-Patch, Meadowbrook Community Center, New Holly P-Patch, and Queen Anne Farmers Market.
Share excess fruit with your community!
We harvest all kinds of fruit, and this year, are seeking to include early varieties like berries, cherries, and plums! Do you also have too many tomatoes? We can pick up already harvested excess tomatoes to distribute to food banks!
Do you have a tree with buggy fruit? Consider netting your trees this year! Our Fruit Tree Specialist can measure your tree and provide the net to help prevent damage from codling moth and other fruit pests! Or you can read here for more information on how to do it yourself!
Harvest and Distribution
The heart of City Fruit is our harvest season, when we pick approximately 40,000 pounds of fruit annually to share with our community through food banks, meal programs, and farmer’s markets.
Fruit Tree Stewardship
We provide year-round tree care to fruit trees on private and public lands to ensure a bountiful harvest season. These services include pruning, mulching, integrated pest management, planting, and more.
