CSA Fair

 

 

Children at the CSA Fair

ASAP’s CSA Fair is an opportunity to meet farmers face-to-face and learn about their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs and products. CSA subscribers receive a weekly box of fresh, locally grown produce or meat throughout the growing season.

At the CSA fair, you can sign up to learn more or bring your checkbook to subscribe right on the spot! Groups from workplaces and religious congregations are encouraged to attend — many of the participating farms will deliver directly to these locations if there is sufficient demand.

What is CSA or Community Supported Agriculture? CSA is a convenient way to enjoy fresh, locally grown food and connect with the farmers who grow it. Family farms offering traditional CSAs provide the chance to sign up for a growing season and receive a box of produce straight from the farm every week! Most CSAs offer convenient pick-up locations or delivery service.

Are you a business interested in offering CSAs at your workplace? Learn about workplace CSA programs and bring community supported agriculture to your business. Some farms will deliver directly to a business or group that commits to a certain minimum number of shares.

Sponsor the fair and show your support for local food and farms! Contact Scott Bunn at scott@asapconnections.org for more information on how to sponsor future events.

Check out this great video by WLOS of the 2016 CSA fair to get a sense of what to expect this year!

The 2017 CSA Fair thanks these sponsors for their generous support.
