Check 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!
