Get fresh, local produce delivered to you weekly.


CitySeed’s Community Supported Market (CSM) delivers farm-fresh produce from Fair Haven and The Hill markets directly to groups of community members at their workplace, community gathering space or school.  It is also an opportunity for businesses and community members to support the economic viability of CitySeed’s Farmers’ Markets Downtown, in Fair Haven and the Hill while accessing fresh, healthy produce from local farms during the market season.

SEASON AND SHARES

eggplantThe 2014 CSM schedule runs 16 weeks from mid-July through October.  Our CSM works much like a CSA and as a CSM shareholder, every Wednesday, Thursday or Friday you receive a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables from the farms that participate in CitySeed’s Downtown, Fair Haven and the Hill market.  Farms that have participated in recent years include George Hall Farm, Hindinger Farm, Chaplin Farm, and Cecarelli Farm. 

Shares can be delivered to worksites or are available at the Fair Haven Market,  Hill market and the Grove.

We are happy to announce that we will be continuing our reusable bag program for all CSM members.  CSM participants are welcome to keep one of their bags at the end of the season.

 

WHAT’S IN A SHARE

peachesShares include farm fresh produce, packaging/handling and a CSM electronic newsletter with recipes, preparation and storage tips!

August Sample Share
4 red Lodi apples
4 ears of sweet corn
1 bag of buttercrunch lettuce
2 diva cucumbers
1 bulb fresh garlic

Our share size is ideal in supplementing a weeks worth of groceries for a family of 2-3 people.  Two shares can always be ordered or an additional share add-on can be purchased if a larger size is desired.

 

MORE OPTIONS THROUGH SHARE ADD-ONS

This year CitySeed is happy to be offering share add-ons!  CSM shareholders will be able to either sign-up for a weekly share of a particular item of their choosing or place a one time order for a particular item online.  Items that we hope to provide are cheese, salad greens and bread.
