About Farm to Go CSA
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a partnership between farmers and consumers. The Farm to Go CSA is a partnership in which members sign up for a season’s worth of fresh and local produce that is sourced from our Pike Place Market Farmers. The produce is packed by Pike Place Market Staff and dedicated volunteers and then conveniently delivered to participating offices or work places each week. The program supports these local farmers to grow their businesses by opening additional sales channels, connecting them with new customers, allowing them to experiment with new crops and varieties, and more.
What will I see in my Farm to Go Box?
During the peak summer growing season (15 weeks from mid-June to late September) members will receive a weekly selection of six to seven items sourced from the freshest, most flavorful produce the farmers at Pike Place Market have to offer. Once a month, members can expect to receive a specialty farm product, such as local honey, jam or herb mix. Members will also receive recipes, storage tips and easy preparation ideas to help make the most of your fruits and vegetables.
For the 2016 season, Farm to Go boxes will be delivered each Wedenesday from June 22nd – September 28th.
