What is a CSA?

CSA stands for COMMUNITY. SUPPORTED. AGRICULTURE.  It's an early-season commitment to buy from your local farm for the entire growing season.  Having a CSA is a great way to invest in your local farmer AND have the best and freshest available produce for the season! Every dollar spent locally gets recirculated in the community 7 times.  When you buy food trucked in from out of state, most of that money flows out of state and stays there.  Therefore, buying local goods helps to strengthen the local economy.  From a farmer's standpoint, CSA shares provide valuable capital in the early part of the season when most of a farms costs are incurred.  By helping the farmer with this early form of financing, the customer is rewarded by becoming a part of the farm and receiving the best quality produce the farm has.  It's a win/win situation. For a list of our CSA Farmers, and others, click HERE

I'm a non-profit interested in having a booth at your market. What do I need to do to make that happen?

Awesome!  We'd love to have you!  Our market has space for ONE 10x10 booth devoted to local non-profits per evening. We encourage you to bring any items to sell, promotional materials, educational materials, and signage for your non-profit.  Set-up time is the same as vendors, and you'll be expected to stay for the entire market.    

 

I'm looking to volunteer!

Heck yes!  We would LOVE to have you! It takes over 10 volunteers EACH NIGHT to facilitate a great and safe market for our community, and we can't thank you enough for thinking of us! Please contact us via email at cfcommunitymarket@gmail.com with the dates you are available and we will get in touch.  Thank you for your time, we know it is a valuable thing.

 

What are your market times?

We open the market to the public from 5pm to twilight every Thursday night from 2nd week of May to last Thursday in September, rain or shine!
