Local food producers

  • Community supported agriculture (CSAs)

    Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for you to buy fresh, local foods directly from farmers.

    CSAs usually have an 18-week season but this can vary from year-to-year.

  • Farmers markets, growers and u-picks

    A farmers market is an event for farmers to sell their products directly to you. Farmers markets often take place outdoors in public places such as parking lots or parks.

    Some farmers open up their field for you to pick up your own fruits and vegetables. Common produce for u-picks include strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or pumpkins.
