Sign-Up Tribeca CSA 2011 Season!

In Uncategorized on February 14, 2011 at 12:01 AM

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our 3rd year as the Tribeca CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), bringing fresh produce and eggs from the black dirt of La Baraja Farm in Orange County, NY to Washington Market Park in Tribeca. Wilklow Orchard, founded in 1855 and located in the Hudson Valley, will offer CSA members a 2nd season of delicious fruit from their “low spray” orchard.

Vegetable Share: August, 2010

We will be offering around 65 memberships this year. They can be purchased either in a full share or in half shares, which will cost half the price of a full share and will be collected every other week.

DISTRIBUTION will be on Tuesday afternoons, 3:00-6:00pm*, at Washington Market Park, corner of Chambers and Greenwich Streets. The season runs for 20 weeks, from June to October. Shares will be lighter in thepring and as the season progresses, will increase in volume and variety. Members are required to fulfill minimum of two 2.5hr work shifts per season at the distribution site.

*Important: please note we have changed the distribution time back to 3-6pm. Even though we wanted to accommodate everyone’s work schedules, the CSA depends on meeting the farmer’s early drop off schedule as well as our outdoor distribution site’s autumn closing hours at sundown.

PRICES Full Vegetable Share: $400, Half Vegetable Share: $210, Fruit Share: $160, Egg Share: $90.
