CSA Share Fair

This weekend! – Community Supported Agriculture or “CSA” programs are prepaid subscriptions to a farm’s produce for the season.  Most CSAs give shareholders a weekly supply of veggies, herbs, fruits and sometimes even eggs and meat. The prepaid CSA arrangements also make a source of financial security for the farmer. Some CSAs also incorporate farm workdays for shareholders. Join us on Saturday to learn more about the CSA programs offered at VFM and see which one might be right for you! More details *here*

Check out these programs: Blue Comet Seafoods | Cedar Isle Farm | Crisp Organics | Cropthorne Farm | Downtown Fresh Box | Klippers Organic Acres | Rondriso Farms | Shalefield Organic Gardens | Skipper Otto’s CSF | Sole Food Street Farms | TFN Farm School | Urban Digs
