Peak season bounty from a 2016 FRESHFARM Share
February 24 was national CSA sign-up day! If you are one of those people who really wants to shop locally and eat seasonally, but can't seem to fit weekly farmers market shopping into your schedule, or if you simply want the convenience of picking up a pre-selected assortment of fruits and veggies every week, we encourage you to give Community Supported Agriculture a try. In addition to our very own FRESHFARM Share, which curates products from multiple farmers and producers in a weekly subscription, several of the farmers in our system offer CSAs. Sign up today and help farmers plan for the growing season! Check out the offerings to decide what option is best for you:
 
FRESHFARM Share (CityCenterDC, Crystal City [NEW!], Foggy Bottom, Penn Quarter, Ballston, H Street NE)
The FRESHFARM Share, similar to a CSA, is a convenient way to support local farmers and food artisans in the mid-Atlantic region. At six participating FRESHFARM markets, we curate a weekly selection of fresh produce for subscribers to pick up during market hours. This is a great option for busy families and urban professionals with limited time, and takes the guesswork out of shopping at a farmers market. Each week, you'll get a bag of the freshest seasonal produce along with recipe ideas, an introduction to our farmers and producers, and a reason to get creative in the kitchen! The program runs from May 16 until the end of October for a 24-week season. Sign up here, and email farmshare@freshfarm.org with questions. 
 
Chicano Sol Farm (Downtown Silver Spring)
Chicano Sol Farm offers a 26-week CSA of their certified organic produce for pick-up at the Downtown Silver Spring Market, beginning in May. Like the idea of a CSA, but can't always meet the commitment? Try the Flex Pay Plan, which allows you to put money into an account (and get a 10% bonus) that you spend over the season on exactly what you want. When your account gets low, Chicano Sol lets you know! Email chicanosol@yahoo.com for more information and to sign up.
 
Evensong Farm (Downtown Silver Spring, Penn Quarter, White House)
Don't you hate it when you get to market and eggs are sold out? Reserve your eggs in advance! Evensong Farm's pasture-raised egg share guarantees you a dozen cartons of eggs over a 14-week period for just $70. Evensong also has a Buyers Club: make a deposit with the farm, and your purchases  at market will be deducted from your account, plus you'll receive a 10% discount on all purchases! Email julie @evensong-farm.com to sign up. Deadline to sign up for the Downtown Silver Spring Egg CSA is March 4, and for the Penn Quarter and White House Egg CSA is April 20. Buyers Club sign-up deadline is April 20.
 
Rainbow Hill Farm (Ballston, H Street NE) 
This woman-owned certified organic farm offers a 20-week CSA of heirloom variety produce. Each week beginning May 13, you'll get an assortment of the best Rainbow Hill Farm has to offer; weekly newsletters that include recipes, tips, and tricks for making the most out of your bounty; and opportunities to visit the farm. Are you strapped for cash? Rainbow Hill is offering two volunteer shares this year; in exchange for four hours of work (one day a week), you can get a bag filled with  freshly picked vegetables of your choice. Click here to sign up and for more info.

Red Tree Farmstead (Downtown Silver Spring)
Formerly Prickly Pear Produce, Red Tree Farmstead offers a CSA of its Certified Naturally Grown produce. Choose from a 15-week season (May through Labor Day), a 12-week season (October through December), or both. Sign up today and you'll get a free flower bouquet mini-CSA during peak flower season! Click here for more information. You can also choose to join Red Tree's market CSA: pay ahead of time to help prepare for the growing season, and get major discounts! Email redtreefarmstead@gmail.com to sign up.
 
Spiral Path Farm (Downtown Silver Spring)
Ready for a long-term commitment to fresh, locally grown produce? Spiral Path Farm offers a certified organic, mixed vegetable CSA that lasts for 36 weeks, from April 22 to December 23. Need a little more flexibility in your CSA schedule? Spiral Path offers a Sampler Share, which is a month-by-month subscription. Click here for details and to sign up. Pay in full by March 15 and get a 5% early bird discount!
