Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and consumers.
Consumers buy "shares" in a farm's harvest in advance.

Joining a CSA benefits the members as well as the farmers.

Farmers earn important early-season capital and have a guaranteed market for their produce. Barring a disastrous harvest, consumers enjoy overall lower food costs, field-fresh produce, and greater access to high-demand fruits and vegetables like long-stem strawberries and heirloom tomatoes.

Most CSAs require an annual or quarterly buy-in and provide weekly deliveries or pick-ups, but some well-established programs offer monthly or even weekly "memberships." Many CSAs also offer farm visits, u-pick days, and other special events for members.

In addition to receiving a weekly box of fresh and delicious produce, members receive many other benefits. You are welcomed and encouraged to visit the farm and develop a connection to the land where your food is grown and to the people who grow it. The farmers offer various locations for pick-up and will answer any questions you have.

The Saline Farmers Market has three vendors who offer the CSA program.
