Examples of what you might expect to find in your share at different time of the summer season:

Mid-July: 1 quart of beans, choice between spinach, arugula and/or mesclun, 1 broccoli, 1 bunch of carrots, a choice of a total of 6 cucumbers and/or zucchinis, 1 head of lettuce or 1 bunch of kale, 3 large fresh onions, choice of 1 bouquet of fresh parsley, dill, cilantro or basil, 2 green peppers, 1 quart of cherry tomatoes.

Basket’s size 

We offer one share size with two delivery options: you can choose to pick up your basket every week or every two weeks. The weekly basket is generally good for a couple who eat a lot of vegetables or a small family. The bi-weekly option usually works well for a single person who eats lots of vegetables or a couple who eat vegetables as side dishes or who eat out regularly. The two basket content examples provided above will help you make your choice.

Summer basket delivery season

The CSA season runs from mid-june until mid-october for a total of 20 weeks of deliveries (9 deliveries if you take a biweekly basket).

The date of the first delivery for the 2014 summer vegetables basket is scheduled to be during the week June 9th, 2014 and the last delivery will be during the week of October 20th, 2014 (the exact date depends on whether you receive a bi-weekly or weekly basket and on the drop-off you will choose).

If you receive a basket every week but you will be often out of town and don’t want to receive lots of double baskets, you can choose to register for 18 or 19 baskets instead of 20. This can give you more flexibility to reschedule the baskets for the weeks you will be away!
