Community supported agriculture
What is community supported agriculture or a CSA?
A CSA is a model of farming that involves members buying shares at the beginning of each growing season. Each member pays in advance for a box of produce delivered to the drop site weekly for approximately 17-21 weeks, no-middle-person, 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.
Full and partial shares will be delivered weekly.
For more information on CSAs, please look at the regional CSA website for information. We are currently working on finding a new CSA to host at our market this year. Stay tuned!
Durable utensil program
The OHSU Farmers Market is on board with the trend in reducing single waste plastics from our landfills.
We hope to be able to get back to considering durables next year!
