CSAs: An eating local win-win for families
Our lives over the last three months have been anything but predictable. But if there's one constant that never changes, it's that your family needs to eat. And serving up a steady supply of healthy foods is a challenge when many of us are trying to limit visits to the store, delivery services are overbooked and farmers markets are restricted.
It's here where community-supported agriculture (CSA) delivers a win. Families buy a CSA membership — a share of a local farm's crop — and in turn, receive a weekly box of produce. Varied, more flavorful and nutritious veggies, a smaller environmental footprint and supporting local farmers make CSAs an awesome alternative to the grocery aisle. Plus, even the pickiest eaters won't be able to resist the excitement of a surprise delivery!
While some Puget Sound-area farms' CSA shares have already sold out, we've rounded up 10 fantastic farms that still have spots — but hurry, they won't last long! Use the arrows above the image to check out the CSAs.
