Overview of CSA Programs
We now offer two distinct types of CSA shares: the traditional prepacked CSA Box and the Market CSA share.
The traditional CSA box comes in the form of a prepacked box that is either picked up at the farm or delivered to a drop site near you. In this model, the variety and quantity of produce in the box is chosen by the farmer, according to what's in season. We offer a summer share, which runs for 18 weeks from early June through early October, and a fall share, which last for seven weeks from mid-October through late November. We offer both a weekly and an every-other-week fall share. We aim to provide members with produce valued at least 15% more than the price paid for the share.
The Market CSA Share is a good choice for those who want more choice in which veggies they receive and are able to pick up their produce in downtown St. Paul. Instead of receiving a weekly box, members are provided a gift card that can be used to purchase veggies at our stall at the St. Paul Farmers' Market. The card may be used at the Saturday market from early-mid May through late November. This option gives members maximum flexibility in deciding what they receive and in what quantity.
