Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
(sign up in March & April)
CSAs are a way that customers can help support farmers' early in the season when income is low and expenses are at their highest. Our CSA is a flexible credit system in which customers select the amount of money they want to pay in the beginning of the season. We keep track of your balance at market as you shop for veggies throughout the season. You pick out what veggies you want and if you don't use your entire share, it rolls over to the following year. Sign up by May 1 and receive 10% of your share in market credit. For example, pay $100 and receive $110 worth of veggie credit.
To sign up, mail us a check with your name and the market you shop at. Or find us at winter market to pay with cash or check.
