Market CSA Program
Instead of receiving a weekly prepacked CSA box, as is most typical of CSA programs, members pick up their produce each week at our stall at the St. Paul Farmers' Market, which occurs on Saturdays and Sundays from May through November (25-30 weeks). This gives members maximum flexibility and choice. Want to choose which veggies you receive each week, and in what quantities? Are you out of town frequently and thus unable to pick up your CSA box at the designated time? A Market CSA Share may be a good fit for you.
How it works
You support our farm by purchasing a share of the harvest at the start of the season when cash is tightest for farmers like us. In exchange, we provide you with a gift card valued higher than the amount you paid for your share. Discounts increase with greater and earlier investments. You may use the card all Saturdays and Sundays from May through November (25-30 weeks).
After selecting your produce, we will swipe the gift card just like we would a credit card, resulting in a drawdown of your gift card balance with each purchase. You can buy as much or as little as you want each week, but the card expires at the end of the market season, usually late November. We will mail you your card in the spring, ahead of the first market in May.
