What is CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a popular way for consumers to buy local seasonal food directly from a farmer who offers a “share” in their harvest. Typically, the share consists of a weekly box of vegetables delivered throughout the farming season – usually June through November.

Why should I sign up for CSA@Work?

King County is committed to supporting local farms and farmers as part of our Local Food Initiative. Participating in CSA@Work is a great way to eat fresh produce throughout the growing season, while supporting local farmers. CSA deliveries often include recipe ideas to help expand your horizons or instructions on cooking with unique ingredients. They can become a weekly bonding activity for meal planning in your household and remind you of what is seasonal and fresh on King County farmland.

How much does a CSA cost?

Costs vary per CSA farm and per CSA size, and ranges in cost from about $18 - $30 per week. Some farms offer installment plans.

How does a CSA support farmers?

Buying a CSA helps farmers early in the season with “seed money” to plant crops for the summer harvest. Farmers can spend more time growing healthy delicious food, delivering to members shortly after harvest, and practicing good stewardship on their land.
