Don’t have the time to make a trip to the market? Consider bringing the market to your home by signing up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership. You pay a subscription fee, and each week a box of various fruits and vegetables are delivered to you. It’s a fun way to try new, seasonal vegetables while supporting local farmers.
