    You had some information about volunteering a couple of weeks ago. Do you still need any and if so, who would I get in touch with?

    What is the fruit (vegetable?) that was in May 15th bin – It’s green, pear-shaped, but the bottom is wrinkled….has a deep crevice on the bottom.
    I looked at the list, but couldn’t place this piece of fruit on it.

    As with Stacy,I couldn’t figure out what the fruit/veg., was in the last order. It’s not a mango, much coarser skin and pear shaped.

    • May 18, 2010 9:08 pm

      Sorry for the confusion everyone! It is Chayote Squash – here’s a good description here and even a recipe here.

    Hi! I was hoping to check out the store on friday and was curious if you all accepted credit cards. If not, that’s not a problem! Thanks!

    As an educator for an agency of the Texas A&M University System called Texas AgriLife Extension Service, I provide free educational programs throughout Dallas County on topics related to nutrition, health (including diabetes education), food safety, and the importance of participating in regular physical activity (through our Walk Across Texas program). I partner with other agencies, organizations, community groups, etc. to present programs to their clientele. I am interested in talking with someone from Urban Acres to discuss the possibility of collaborating to provide educational programs/information to your clientele.

    After stopping by the store this past weekend and talking co-ops, where to find TX organic farmers, and home brew, I came across this article in WSJ on Whole Foods professional forager:

    Would like to know what the large Squash like veggie in our July 10th bin, so we can figure out how to cook it. thank you.

    • July 13, 2010 4:50 pm

      It is just that…a large squash. 🙂 Cook it as you would the smaller kinds – my fave is just cut up, drizzled with olive oil and seasonings and sauteed in the skillet for a few minutes. Makes a great side dish!

      • February 24, 2012 6:50 pm

        Hi Heidi,

        Here are some other ideas for preparing squash:

        1) Slice lengthwise and drizzle with flavored vinegar and/or soy sauce and heat in a toaster oven on the grill setting.

        2) Cut the top off 1/4 to 1/3 down, loosen up the center or cut slots across it and add some butter and a little brown sugar, put the top back on, and bake until tender. Round squash like butternut you can cut just the top and leave most of the bottom. Larger oblong squash you can cut them open like you would a roll for a subway sandwich and do the same thing.

        3) Use recipe ideas for stuffed bell peppers and stuff your squash in a similar manner and bake.

        4) For large squash and zucchini that have little strong flavor of their own, bake them whole until tender the way you would a baked potato (put a few fork holes in them to relieve pressure). Refrigerate until cool enough to handle or cold. Cube and mix in your favorite potato salad recipe. Most will not notice even if you half squash and half potatoes.

    I could almost move to Dallas for this store, had one in Oregon and they grew so fast, just hard to keep the team ( free thinkers) on the same page! AWESEOM JOB!

  10. July 19, 2010 5:27 pm

    Hi Cara! Yes, we are always accepting new members. Last Saturday was Irving’s latest produce day so the next one that you could join in on would be July 31st. Simply go to the How Do I Join? page, download, print and fill out the membership form and mail it in with your payment before next Monday (the 26th). You can also email and let them know it’s in the mail and someone will contact you to get you on the list. Excited to have you on board!

    Could you post a list each time of what is in the bins? We almost always get something we aren’t sure what it is. It would really help when we are figuring out how to cook it. Thanks.

    • August 9, 2010 9:50 pm

      Thanks for the feed back. We’ve been working hard to find a system to where we can let you guys know about new and fun things that are coming from the farms. Stay tuned and hopefully we can start putting something together for you guys!

    Hi, can someone tell me what the fruit was in our August 7 bin that is round and tastes like a pear?

    • August 9, 2010 9:50 pm

      One of our wonderful farmers has young Asian Pear trees. Yum! Hopefully we can get them for a stretch here. As the years go on they will be the size of traditional Asian Pears that can be as big as Grapefruit 🙂

    My husband and I just joined today! We live in Stevens Park, so we’re so excited about picking up our first batch of fresh product just a ways down the street! I write a blog about things I find exceptional and Urban Acres certainly fits the bill! Please find the post about UA here!

  14. September 20, 2010 5:12 pm

    I was recently out of town for while, and was having trouble keeping up with my pears from the produce share. So I made some homemade air freshener:

    Just picked up our first bin on Saturday. We’ve identified the red leaf lettuce,celery,brocolli,parsely,bok choy…but there is one other green leafy item that has remained unidentified. Could you please help?

    Hi, I’m a volunteer with a group down in the Texas Hill Country (Wimberley), called The Bountiful Sprout ( We are doing something similar to what you do, only without the farm store (yet). Only problem is, our website sucks, and yours is fantastic! We are using some free software that we got from the guy who designed the Oklahoma and Nebraska food co-ops, but the website they set up to go with it is dull, dull, dull! And confusing! Anyway, all the members are out scouting their favorite websites to see if they can find a web designer talented enough to help revamp ours. Can you recommend the person who did yours?

      Thanks for your kind words. We actually do all of our own work here at Urban Acres. We’ve been lucky enough to have some amazing talent that puts our website, newsletter, and communication together. We’d love to see if Urban Acres can help you guys. Hopefully one day we can open up a store in your neck of the woods.

      Come see us in Dallas!

        Excellent, that’s what I was hoping it was although the shape of the leaves seemed off from the pics I looked up online. I have a cold so can’t smell right now 🙂

        Guess it will be pasta week!

    any plans to set up a stand in Denton County? Perhaps in the cit of Denton!
    Id help in any way needed to make this happen!

      Good thought, Jessica, we’re always open to talking about other locations!

    How do you guys go about opening up a “farmstand” pick up location? Are you guys planning on opening up any more locations? like maybe in the Flower Mound/Denton area??

    • March 9, 2011 9:14 pm

      Hi Ellyse! Thanks for your comment. We’re always open to it – we just need to have a pickup location in the area and enough of a local interest to start one. It’s best if we start with a church, fitness center, community center, a group that already has interest so we don’t have to start from scratch. If you have any ideas, let us know! We are currently working on new locations in Richardson and Allen/Wylie.

        FWIW, I’d love a farm stand location in the Arlington area. It’s a bit of a trek to Oak Cliff and not much closer to the nearest farm stand in Irving!

    • February 7, 2012 10:45 pm

      Hi Jenny,

      There is no commitment, but once you join, your membership lasts for 1 year. That doesn’t mean you have to keep getting produce for the entire year, though. But we hope you will! 🙂 Let us know if you have any other questions!

    I know you carry organic and raw milk, do any of these come in glass bottles?

    • February 14, 2012 10:28 pm

      Hi Tyler! We actually do not carry raw milk – we are not allowed to do that per Texas law. But we do carry organic milk – 2 options that are both LOCAL: 1) Texas Daily Harvest low-pasteurized non-homogenized milk and 2) County Line Organic milk. Come check it out!

    Any plans yet for a stand in denton? I know some farms use the albertsons on university as a CSA pickup. Please, please, please…..I need my fruits and veggies!!! 😉

    • March 20, 2012 11:53 pm

      Hi Marie! Thanks for your interest! Not yet 🙂 But it could be in the near future! We just need enough interest in the area and a host location with an inside area.

    Please! No more beets in the shares! And why is there barely any fruit lately? We have fun with this program, but this is getting annoying! Who eats beets every week??

    • May 25, 2012 1:47 pm

      Hi Jessica! Thanks for letting us know! We’re so sorry you’re getting sick of the beets…have you tried Beet Chips? They’re amazing, and you can use up a bunch of beets at once. We’re right in the middle of the wonderful Texas produce, so almost everything we have right now is what’s locally grown here in Texas. We’ll have Texas plums this weekend and more fruit such as berries coming soon! Thanks so much for your support 🙂

  30. May 28, 2012 10:11 am

    check out this recipe for another way to use those beets!

    I’m a HUGE fan of Urban Acres. I’m so glad that I found them. I am promoting them on my blog this week. After taking a few weeks off from writing, I am so happy to return with Urban Acres being one of the main focuses on my insert. Hopefully, it will bring more customers! So happy with the produce!

      Hi Renee!

      Thanks so much for your interest in joining us! We’ve had tons of people in the Rockwall/Rowlett area who want us to put a farm stand there. We are working on a way to make that happen with our current situation. We don’t have the resources yet to add another pickup that far away, but we’ll keep you posted when we do!

  36. November 25, 2012 9:53 pm

    Hello, I can’t find where it lays out what happens if you no longer can purchase bins in the co-op. I understand you get 3 holds. Is it a yearly subscription or commitment? Thanks so much for the feedback!

    • November 27, 2012 9:42 am

      Hi there! Love your blog, thanks for contacting us! Once you join, your membership fee is good for 1 year from the date you joined.
