(Community Supported Agriculture) offer a box of the farmer's freshest produce or meat every week. The vegetables vary, depending on what the farmer is growing. Eating from the local foodshed brings with it so many benefits, from offering an affordable source of healthy food while reducing the carbon footprint incurred delivering that food to our plates, to supplying a connection for where our food comes from, to creating a true sense of food security. Joining CSAs help farmers thrive, while also giving you the freshest veggies available in a weekly box!

While you are shopping at the market, please ask the Farmer if they provide CSAs
