**City Roots Summer CSA Registration is Closed**

 

Enjoy local, organic, fresh produce on a weekly basis & support your in-town, sustainable farm by becoming a City Roots CSA Member.

How it works:

You receive a “share” of the season’s crops, which ensures a future portion of each week’s harvest at a 10-15% discount off regular retail pricing. Pick-up is at City Roots farm on Thursdays, 12 - 7pm, and Fridays, 9 am – 4 pm.

You will receive weekly emails with a description of items in that week's share, pick-up details, storage tips, and recipes.
Also, stay tuned for an email with more information on the City Roots CSA Member Community on Facebook and City Roots CSA Member events.

Note that some weeks may be more bountiful than others. However, we track the dollar value of produce you receive each week to ensure that you get the appropriate amount for the season.

What is CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and is an alternative model of production and marketing, usually with small, organic farms, whereby customers buy a portion of a farm’s harvest in advance.

Why join City Roots CSA?

Buying produce from City Roots at farmers markets can be very rewarding, but a City Roots CSA membership goes a step further. As a City Roots CSA Member, you enter into a relationship with us, your farmer, that we hope continues season after season. Our goal is to provide you with produce each week, but also with the tools you need to sucessfuly store and cook what's in your share.

Being a City Roots CSA Member is a journey and a commitment, and can be extremely rewarding, but the reward of a CSA can also be a challenging adjustment. You will have to get creative to reap the benefits of seasonal eating and making a weekly visit to City Roots farm. We are here to help you though! Through weekly emails from City Roots and through advice on the City Roots CSA Member Community on Facebook you will become a City Roots CSA master.

Beyond nourishing your body, we also aim to strengthen your connection to people in your community who are on the same CSA journey as you. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and share recipes, tips, and experiences with fellow City Roots CSA Members once you gain access to the City Roots CSA Member Community. City Roots will also host periodic City Roots CSA members only events for you to enjoy.

Members Said:

"You all are very organized! I love getting the email letting us know what will be in our box, with recipes and storage tips. It's also an upper to come and pick up our produce at the farm. The "surprise" element has led us to culinary experiments. I love eating such healthy, special food, with the seasons. I appreciate the swap option."
"Good portions of veggies for the cost! Everything was fresh and lasted crisply until used up."
"(We liked) learning to cook and eat some vegetables that were totally new to our family. Also, the mushrooms!"
