9 FARM-SHARE CSAs WITH PICKUPS AROUND THE UPPER WEST SIDE

csa

Just like last year, we’ve compiled an updated list of CSAs on the Upper West Side where local farmers drop off fresh fruits and vegetables. West Side Rag contributor Tessa Abrahams has compiled the list, with prices and pickup locations. Let us know in the comments if we’re missing anything.

Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs support local farms and bring fresh vegetables to cities. Members pay farmers for a share of their harvest and then pick the food up every week or two at a spot close to their home.

      There used to be one at the West Side YMCA, on 63rd, between Broadway and CPW.

      Clicking on the link to the West Harlem CSA doesn’t connect to the West Harlem CSA website.

      Not sure how a single ‘senior’ is going to be able to eat so much food weekly to justify the cost?
