Drive-Thru Deliciousness: CSA California’s Co-Op Fruits & Veggies

apricotsCheck out CSA (that stands for Community Supported Agriculture) California. Here in SoCal, their produce comes from the Ramirez Family Farm, and goes directly to drop-off/pick-up locations in Downtown, the Valley, Mar Vista, the Fairfax Trading Post, and Marina del Rey.

It’s pretty simple. You pay $25 for a bag of fruits & veggies, all locally grown and organic. All the info is here. This week’s bag o’ goodies includes Romaine lettuce, broccoli, parsley, yellow onion, garlic, corn, red bell pepper, yellow peaches, white nectarines, pluots, pricots, a choice of spinach or kale and a choice of celery or asparagus. Yum!

What’s particularly fun about their downtown location, in Little Tokyo, is that they’ve got a roundabout where you can just drive-thru and pick up your produce from your car. Easy peasy!

  1. FYI, there are multiple CSAs that service Southern California.

    On the “Good Food” from two weeks ago, Evan Kleiman interviewed a farmer from the South Central Farmers Cooperative–these are the people that had the farm in South Central that were evicted, and are now farming in Bakersfield. They have a CSA that delivers to multiple spots in SoCal, and they are at a few farmers’ markets in the area. Thought people might be interested in hearing the interview:

    I’m not saying they’re better than the CSA mentioned by Lucinda–just support ANY local farmers!
