Big purchases scare many people these days. So when it comes time to sign up for a CSA, worries may kick in.
“Will I get more than just kale?,” you may wonder. “Is $900 for a season really worth it?”
The good news is you can sample a CSA’s bounty. Although few, if any, CSAs promote trial periods, the fact is that during the waning days of summer, many CSA members leave town for vacation and offer their weekly shares for sale.
For around $30, you should be able to pick up a week’s share, about two bags full of farm fresh produce, and depending on the CSA, you may also take home bread, grains, cheese, eggs, or even home-baked cookies.
For more information, check out the list of CSAs at Local Harvest. Then email or call the contact person and ask if anyone is trying to sell a week’s share while on vacation.
Good luck and leave a comment to let me know if you end up sampling a CSA!
