Community Supported Agriculture at OHSU's Doorstep
You don't have to go far to get amazingly fresh produce. OHSU is now the host of 5 drop sites for Minto Island Grower's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) all Organic program.
What is a CSA?
A CSA is a share in a local farm. Each member pays in advance for a box of produce delivered to the drop site every week for 22 weeks, no-middle-man, fresh from the farm, picked within 24-48 hours! This model of farming is wonderful for the farmers as it provides a known source of funds for the season as well as expected amount to harvest. CSA members enjoy fresh produce and the opportunity to get to know their local farmer, learn about small scale organic production systems and invest in the local economy. Members pay for their 22 week share in 1 or 2 installments. A partial share costs $400 and a full share costs $615 for the full 22 weeks worth of produce.Their produce is beautiful, their shares are abundant, the farmers are incredibly reliable and the cost is very reasonable for 22 boxes.
This season, the OHSU community, including employees, students & visitors, have the opportunity to subscribe to Minto Island's CSA and have the produce dropped at your choice of 5 locations:
- MacKenzie Hall, Marquam Hill
- Casey Eye Institute, Maquam Hill
- Center For Health and Healing - Bike Valet Station at the South Waterfront
- OHSU Foundation, Downtown
- Market Square Building, Downtown

Durable Dish Program
Ever notice all of the plastic forks in the garbage?
We have a solution! This year, all vendors will use Preserve's reusable utensils. They are GREEN and can be sanitized and reused week to week. Please support this Durable Dish initiative by returning your green utensils into the buckets at one of the waste pods located throughout the market.
