Rienzi Market is now offering Local Farm Boxes — a pre-paid subscription of weekly boxes filled with the best all local and in-season foods.
The boxes, available for pickup at the St. Francis Vegetable Garden market during market hours, will vary week to week and will contain $30 worth of goods. The box will not only include items from the vendors who regularly sell at the market but will also have added items from other local producers
This subscription-based model is called community-supported agriculture, or CSA, and will give our producers the freedom to be able to grow a greater quantity and more variety without having to worry about produce going unsold…and subscribers receive a fresh, seasonal variety of local foods without any hassle.
Depending on what’s in season, boxes might be full of veggies and fruits or, in the offseason, we’ll supplement with items like honey, eggs, or protein.
