Thank you for your interest in the Crossroads Multi-Farm CSA! By becoming a member, not only will you receive fresh fruits and vegetables from Crossroads farmers, but also you will become an essential part of our mission: to build a healthier, more inclusive food system in Maryland’s Takoma/Langley Crossroads. Our CSA runs for 31 weeks, from May 31 - December 27 – that’s six more weeks than last year! – and it combines naturally grown produce, handmade products, and other farm-fresh goodies from multiple Crossroads vendors.
Basic shares include 3-6 types of vegetable items and 1-2 types of fruit items, equivalent to one half bushel of produce. (Have a big family? Consider getting two shares!) Members pick up their share of freshly harvested produce and other market goods each Wednesday from their neighborhood pickup site.
There are many advantages to participating in a CSA: they’re a great way to save time and money on shopping for quality produce, and a fun way to learn about new foods and become more connected to the food you eat. An added bonus for Crossroads CSA members? You’ll be supporting local farmers who are dedicated to expanding access to fresh, local produce in the Takoma/Langley Crossroads. Put another way, you’ll be helping to ensure that *everyone* in our community can afford to eat fresh, healthy food.
In 2017, we’re offering two add-on options:
- Eggs: 1 dozen eggs from pasture-raised chickens, delivered every other week
- Market treat: rotating selection of locally produced items from Crossroads vendors – including Alcoba Coffee, Seedy Nutty snack mix, local honey, Toigo Orchards cider, and more – delivered every other week.
You can also choose to donate one (or two or three!) weekly, one-time shares to a senior, individual, or family in need in the Crossroads community.
Please read over our Crossroads Multi-Farm CSA Member Agreement before signing up. Don't hesitate to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with further questions.
