What is CSA?

Connecting Latino growers with local eaters

Community Supported Agriculture is a program that allows local community members to buy local fruit and vegetables directly from the source.

In most CSA relationships, the produce is distributed to members in weekly "shares," which the community members purchase in advance at the beginning of the growing season.

In the Adelante Mujeres CSA, our Distributor buys local produce from many farmers, who are also Sustainable Agriculture program participants, and compiles the produce into shares for the CSA members each week.

Your fresh local produce is not just the effort of one farmer, but rather an aggregate result of a the labor of a group of hardworking Latino farmers dedicated to sustainable farming practices.

Purchasing CSA shares in the spring allows the farmers guaranteed sales throughout the season, stabilizing their income in the very hectic world of produce sales.

CSA has supported local agriculture systems since it was introduced to the United States in the 1980s, and it has since grown to over 6,000 farms across the country.

To join a CSA, members buy a share of the harvest in the winter and spring and receive a box of local produce each week throughout the growing season.

Our specialty CSA Salsa Share runs August through October, and provides ingredients and a recipe for salsa each week!

Many of our local Latino farmers love to grow peppers, onions, cilantro and tomatillos. We've crafted this Salsa Share to highlight these fabulous products and cater to local salsa lovers!
