COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

 

 

 

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture, also known as CSAs, have been a core form of support for farmers serving urban populations for decades. By signing up, you secure a stable supply of fresh produce and local food products at a discounted rate each week throughout the season. In addition, you support farmers and entrepreneurs of color in your community!

What Do I Get? And for How Much?

The CSA rate averages $20 per week and bags will include 5 items.

An example bag may contain:

  • 3 types of vegetables
  • 1 fruit
  • your choice of herbs or specialty items (bread, flowers, or eggs)

CSA members will also receive weekly emails including reminders about the market schedule and recipes or other information about items in their bag each week.

Seasonal Options

  • Full Season – For those who want produce every week! Pick up available at either our Friday (Capitol Heights) or Sunday (Suitland) locations from June through October. This option is priced at $400 for 19 weeks.
  • Half Season Share – For those who want consistent veggies but can’t commit to each week. Bi-weekly pick up available at our 2nd and 4th Friday markets (Capitol Heights) or every other Sunday (Suitland). This option is priced at $200 for 10 weeks alternating throughout the season.
  • Summer Share – For those who may want produce every week but not to pay upfront for the full market season. You can purchase a summer share and then closer to the fall (By August 16th), purchase your next share (or not!). $200 for the first 9 weeks throughout the season.
  • Fall Share – If you want to break your market CSA into two payments or if you just want produce for a shorter season, this option is for you. $200 for the last 10 weeks of the season.
