Growth and benefits

If you join a CSA, you receive fresh food daily

You won't have to hang around the grocery store, your leafy greens will stay fresh longer, because they're fresher to begin with, and summer fruits and tomatoes can be picked once they're ripe and at peak flavor, because they're getting to you right away.

Are you in need of inexpensive groceries?

A typical single share of produce costs roughly $12-$18 per week. While they differ throughout the season, the bundle typically contains at least four or more different vegetable varieties , scouting the same items in a farmers market will quickly add up to more than your weekly installment plan. Additionally, some CSA's might offer sliding-scale prices for lower-income families.

There are fun surprises!
