CSAs

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  In a CSA, a farmer offers a certain number of shares to the public.  A share is usually a box of seasonal produce, but sometimes meat and dairy are included as well.  Usually you pay up front at the beginning of the season, and then you can pick up local seasonal produce all summer long.  Prices vary, and sometimes you can work off a portion of your share by volunteering your time working on the farm.  You generally pick up your shares at the farm on a designated day each week.

See all CSAs listed on Eat Local Philly. Use the drop down menu above to search for CSAs by county.
