CSAs are weekly deliveries of fresh vegetables and fruits from local farms. To sign up for the 2017 season, contact us. Select King County worksites participate as drop-off locations and participants receive a box of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season – usually June through November.

Frequently Asked Questions

CSAs are a popular way for consumers to buy local seasonal food directly from a farmer who offers a “share” in their harvest. Typically, the share consists of a weekly box of vegetables delivered throughout the farming season – usually June through October.

 

Participating in the CSA@Work program is a great way to commit to eating vegetables throughout the growing season with a convenient weekly delivery to King County worksites. CSAs deliveries often include recipe ideas to help expand your horizons or instructions on cooking with unique ingredients. They can become a weekly bonding activity for other eaters in your household and remind you of what is seasonal and fresh on King County farmland.

 

 

Four King County CSA programs offer deliveries to select King County employee worksites in 2017:

Oxbow and Mezza Luna are single-farm CSAs that grow all the food in each box (though you can add local honey or mushroom shares through Oxbow’s program). Pike Place Market and Snoqualmie Valley Farmers Co-op are cooperative models that include food from 15 different farms. Some CSAs offer different box sizes to account for different household sizes and eating habits.

King County buildings will host only one CSA program each, so select a CSA program that excites you AND delivers to a conveniently located building.

Costs vary per CSA program and per CSA size, and ranges in cost from $18 - $30 per week. Some programs offer installment plans.
Buying a CSA helps farmers early in the season with “seed money” to plant crops for the summer harvest. Farmers can spend more time growing healthy delicious food, delivering to members shortly after harvest, and practicing good stewardship on their land.
