NEW! Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) – Look for more information soon!
Purchase a “share” from local farmers and get fresh seasonal produce each week. A “share” typically consists of a box or bag of vegetables, but other farm products may be included.
This arrangement creates several rewards for both the consumer and the farmer. Consumers get ultra-fresh food and exposure to new vegetables and new ways of cooking. Farmers get to market their foods early in the year, have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow, and received payment early in the season to help cash flow.
Location: Green Road Parking Lot (outside the Printing Services Building)
Tentative Dates: Every Thursday, July 16 – September 24 (except Sept. 3)
Time: 3 – 6 p.m.
