Each season, the Washington Square CSA offers one or more Market Day events, when we are able to distribute add-on products on a per-item basis. These events are exciting opportunities to try out new products from local farms and producers, or to get just one or two units of a product if you didn't want to purchase a full share. Some market day items are also offered as add-on shares, while others are offered exclusively on these special days.
How do Market Days work?
The farm informs us when they will offer a market day and which items will be available. We then take pre-orders from any members that wish to purchase these additional products (a week or more in advance). The farm delivers our Market Day prodcuts with our regular weekly delivery and members pick up their orders at normal distribution. Like our normal shares, Market Day orders cannot be saved for members that miss the weekly pick-up.
When are Market Days?
We expect to offer 2-3 market days during the Summer 2014 season. The first one is likely to be in late June or early July!
