Community Supported Agriculture
In a CSA, you buy shares of local farmers’ upcoming harvests. Each week, from June through November, the CSA farmer delivers the week’s share to a central neighborhood distribution site, and members collect their shares.
On both the Upper East & Upper West Sides you can buy 100% local food at a number of local CSAs. For more information and to find Community Supported Agriculture groups near you, visit Just Food.
