Farm Share Fair in Cambridge

Sign up for a CSA share at the Farm Share Fair

Sign up for a CSA share at the Farm Share Fair

This Thursday there’s a Farm Share Fair in Cambridge where you’ll be able to sign up for a CSA share from farmers who deliver in the Cambridge area.

CSA stands for community supported agriculture. Farmers sell shares in their season’s produce. Each week you’ll receive a box of seasonal vegetables (and in some cases other farm products such as meat or fish). Shares are delivered to local drop off sites.

It’s sort of a fresh vegetables subscription.

Shareholders purchase their shares in advance of the growing season. Shares typically run from June through October.  Prices vary and shares can be bought in different sizes. A typical share might cost on the order of $30 per week for approximately 12 to 15 pounds of fresh produce.

Come by this Thursday to meet the farmers. More than a dozen farms are participating. Be sure to bring your checkbook!

Don’t worry if you haven’t been home for dinner.There’ll be pizza and spring rolls available for purchase as a fundraiser.

The Farm Share Fair is sponsored by theMOVE, NOFA/Mass and Somerville Climate Action.

The Cambridge Farm Share Fair is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011 from 5:30 to 8:00 pm in Harvard Square at the Democracy Center, 45 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge, MA 02138.
