CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a way for consumers to connect directly with farmers. A microgreens CSA allows you to prepay (with a little discount over regular retail) for a weekly supply of microgreens for a set amount of time. This will allow you to not have to rush to the farmers market each week to make sure you get the microgreens you want.
Each Microgreens CSA share gets you one retail pack of microgreens each week during the CSA timeframe.
The summer Microgreens CSA will start June 4th and go through August 30th for a total of 13 weeks. Pick up will be Saturdays at the South Durham Farmers Market OR Tuesday's at the Chapel Hill Farmers Market. The CSA the share options will be the following:
