This is one of those places where I drive by all the time on Rufina Street in Santa Fe. Their mural caught my eye.
Finally, traffic slowed enough so that I could read the signage, Urban Rebel Farms. It was intriguing to me because it looked like Urban Rebel Farms was into plants. It was off the beaten path in a industrial strip mall. Interesting
Online, I found that Urban Rebel Farms sold micro greens. They were selling a 10×10 flat for 20 dollars. I love micro greens and am growing them this summer. So we went to visit Urban Rebel Farms. We met Jerome who helped us navigate the plant starts. This year I missed out on getting lemon cucumbers, I was delighted to see that Urban Rebel Farms had them. Now I do as well.
We found all kinds of peppers! This year I am just growing peppers, jalapenos, serrano, and my personal favorite, shishito.
There were lots of strawberry and tomato starts. The 3 inch start was 3.50 and the 7.50 for a quart size start.
I asked Jerome about the micro-greens. I got the entire story about Urban Rebel Farms. Usually Urban Rebel Farms sold just to restaurants in town. Since the pandemic hit the restaurant business hard, Urban Rebel Farms opened to the general public. That made sense. From what I understood, the micro green flats were on a subscription basis. I am well aware that I can’t eat 20 dollars of micro greens a week, so I stuck with the starts.
Urban Rebel Farms is located 3201 Rufina Street, Santa Fe. Their phone number is 505.379.8959
Hours posted on website: Monday-Friday 10-5 and Saturday 11-4. I would call because their website doesn’t have very much information. Their Facebook page has maybe a little more information.
I tracked down an online article about Urban Rebel Farm in Edible Magazine. This article was published last year in April.
BTW Here is the menu at Bang Bite while they were at Santa Fe Brewing. I am taking a break from fried foods.

Very cool! Looks like a great place to gather supplies and learn about gardening!!
Yes! Jerome was very helpful. He suggested some soil amendment to keep the water longer in the soil called cinderite.
