Get to Know Five Seeds Farm

Five Seeds Farm is unlike any other vendor at the marketplace.  Most of our farm vendors are located, as you would expect, in the country.  Five Seeds has fields in both the country and the city of Baltimore and its story is fascinating and inspiring.

Owned and operated by Denzel Mitchell and his wife Tiombe, Five Seeds began in 2008 in the Mitchell’s backyard in Baltimore’s Belair-Edison neighborhood.  They also began farming a City Farms plot and six vacant lots across the street from their house.  Soon after, they expanded to other vacant lots and private yards across the city.

In 2011, Five Seeds Farm expanded to include a farm in Sparks, a town north of Baltimore.  Today they raise fruits, vegetables, herbs, eggs, honey and animals and sell at famers markts and to 11 area restaurants.
