Types of Shares

Summer Share: Grown by Norwich Meadows Farm, the Summer Share consists of organic summer vegetables and does not include fruit (available as an add-on). Weekly pick-ups occur on Tuesdays from 4:00-8:00 PM from mid-June to October/November, depending on the weather for a total of 20-22 pick ups.

Fall Share: Grown by Norwich Meadows Farm, the Fall Share consists of organic fall vegetables and does not include fruit (which is available as an add-on). This share offers the same frequency, quantity and variety of the summer shares, and is ideal for people who are away for the summer such as college students, staff and faculty. The Fall Share  begins after Labor Day and ends October/November for a total of 10-11 pick ups. Weekly pick-ups occur on Tuesdays from 4:00-8:00 PM. Registration for Fall Share 2016 will begin August 23, 2016.

Winter Share: Provided by Norwich Meadows Farm and Winter Sun Farms the Winter Share consists of organic winter produce and products such as root crops, winter greens and a variety of dairy and jarred products from local farmers on a monthly basis with 5 or 6 pick ups depending. This share is designed to assist the farm with critical funds to cover the cost of seed, equipment, repairs, and other materials. The winter share pick ups occur from December to May.

We offer 3 types of Winter Shares: Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian (Norwich Meadows Farms); Omnivore (Norwich Meadows Farms); and Vegan Frozen Share (Winter Sun Farms). For more information on the winter shares click here.

Other Information

Variety: Each week items change, and the offerings are determined by the farmer according to what is in season. The below links provide information regarding items offered and length of each share.

Summer 2012       Summer 2010    Summer 2009

Quantity: The CSA shares provide fresh produce for 1-3 individuals depending upon diet, goals and cooking style. During peak season a share weighs approximately 20 pounds and fills  2 regular large tote bags. Winter Shares are somewhat smaller, and you opt to subscribe to 2 shares.

Distribution
St. Mark's Church in the Bowery 131 East 10th Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues). Due to lack of storage, missed pick ups can not be refunded, however they will be donated to a local food pantry. You may arrange to sell or share individual pickups through Washington Square CSA Facebook Group. (Note: During pick up at our CSA you select the produce from large bins!)

Registration Deadlines: The value of CSAs the farmers and members to work together, providing the farmer with ample time to plan and prepare in advance of the season. This means CSAs work best when members subscribe well in advance of the season. To that end, an early bird discount is designed to encourage early registration.

    •    Fall Share 2016 registration is now open through August 19.
    •    Summer 2016 registration is CLOSED.
