With thoughts turned to the growing season ahead, February is the time we host CSA Days at the Winter Farmers’ Market, and feature farms offering shares in their harvest. Come and discover more about CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), and sign up for the coming season — CSA Day at Exeter’s market is on Saturday, February 11th, and at the Wentworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford, on February 25th. There are a lot of diverse options for pick-up locations, share structures, available foods, and farm involvement. Come to a CSA Day to find the right option for you!
A list of farms with available CSA shares may be found online here. The list is updated as farms open for sign-ups or sell out — if you’ve already chosen a CSA, sign up soon to ensure your place!
Here’s a quick look at how much CSAs have grown since 1984, especially in New England, from LocalHarvest:
