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.
Just local foods. Less Chemicals + More Nutrients =
Just to help things run more smoothly!
- Contents in the boxes are determined by what’s in season and what’s fresh — there are no exceptions or substitutions.
- Subscribers must prepay for entire 4-week subscription by the Monday preceding the start of the new subscription. Payments can be made with cash, check [made out to the St. Francis Vegetable Garden] or online.
- If subscribers are unable to pick up a box during the pre-paid subscription, they must give 7-days notice and then will be able to choose between a $30 credit toward another subscription or a $30 refund.
- If a subscriber fails to pick up a box during the Monday 3:30-6 pickup time at the St. Francis Vegetable Garden without the 7-day notice, it is considered a donation to the St. Francis Vegetable Garden and no refund or credit will be given.
