CSA Day at the Market February 8th

CSA members get the first of everything.

The first peas, the first tomatoes, the first strawberries. Whatever the farm grows, the CSA members are the ones who the farmer carefully sets aside the best and most beautiful for. When it’s a lean year for cauliflower, and there’s hardly a head at the farmers markets, you can be sure that what was harvested went first to CSA members. 

[New to this whole thing and wondering what CSA stands for and what it’s all about? Start here.]

There’s lots of reasons to join a CSA, from supporting the farm financially at the time of year they need it most to making sure you and your family eat a diverse diet of fresh, nutritious vegetables. But also, you get to be the first. Call it a side benefit.

While our amazing farmers market happens inside the cafeteria of the Exeter High School on Saturday February 8th, these twelve CSA farms will set up tables just to be available to talk to you about their individual CSA options. There’s a lot of options.
