When is the first pick-up date?
Our CSA begins the second week of June and ends the second week of November.
Will there be enough produce for me to can and freeze?
The CSA share is not intended for canning, freezing or sharing with friends and family. However, we do offer case discount on items we have available for wholesale, so you will still be able to can tomatoes at a reasonable price!
I usually come just to Saturday market what happens if I miss a market.
As a “free choice” share member you may come to any of our “free choice” style pick-up locations. These include Saturday and Tuesday markets in Ithaca and the Montessori School in Auburn on Thursdays. You can come to all three of these in the same week if you wish, but the limited items may only be taken once a week.
Boxed Share members can also change thier pick-up locations – but since we are packing a box with your name on it, we need to know by Sunday of the week you are changing pick-up locations.
We usually go on vacation in August for two weeks.
Do you have a friend or family member who would enjoy using your share while you are gone? Send them to pick-up your share while you are gone – for us it’s a valuable way to introduce a new person to the CSA concept. Just let us know who will be picking up for you before you depart.
Do I need to come to market early to get a good selection?
We strive to bring enough produce to have a bountiful display at the end of each market. However, some items inevitably are sold out at the end of market. For the best selection it is best to arrive at market before noon. Of course, if you miss an item you are always welcome to come to the next market that week.
