Sign up time for the 14th Street Y CSA

Via the EVG inbox...

It's time to sign up for your local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Mountain View Farm supplies farm fresh food to the 14th Street Y CSA. Sign up now to join — and every week you will pick up a massive box of glorious, fresh vegetables at the 14th Street Y, 344 E. 14th St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

The farm has been busy in the greenhouse since mid-March and is currently prepping the fields for planting. They have already seeded onions, beets, fennel, leeks, cabbage, broccoli, kale, lettuce, celery, celeriac, swiss chard and so much more! Everything is looking really good in the greenhouse and the first share will be here before you know it!

Visit their website for more information and follow the link to purchase a share.

And feel free to come meet the farmers at the 14th Street Y — in the lobby — on Tuesday (April 18) from 3:30-6:30 p.m. Come taste some samples of the veggies they will be supplying.

This CSA is a great deal. We've been members for the last 5 years, winter and summer shares.

Very generous, high quality organic produce the same level as the Union Square Farmers market for a third of the price

I guess if you have a family or roommates to feed and they all share the wealth, it is a great deal; I agree I've always gotten high-quality organic produce for my money.

I've never been able to make my CSA shares work, because I'm often the only person I'm cooking for and there ends up being too much food—and not enough freezer space.

This CSA is wonderful! I've bee a member for about 5 years. The vegetables are amazing and at the end of the season we get freshly canned tomatoes from the farm! Also there is a fruit share which is lovely and delicious.
