With the weather getting warmer it’s time to start thinking about warm summer nights, baseball games, fresh local vegetables and cold brewed coffee. This year we are really excited to join up with an urban farm in West-Philly to help put on Neighborhood Foods CSA. Through their CSA you can get fresh local vegetables in addition to Greenstreet Coffee! In a CSA, customers pay for the product up front and then receive weekly deliveries. The CSA runs from May 24th to October 25th and has drop-off locations all over the city, including a home delivery option.
This is a great way to support small businesses who are doing great things right here in our neighborhood. All of the money made from the CSA goes back to Philly businesses and community programs that focus on food access and education. So go ahead and break out those recipes, fire up the grill, and get ready to cold press some fine beans. Make this summer a savory one!
