This summer, there's a new spot to pick up farm-fresh food in Philly. The Logan Circle restaurant Urban Farmer will be a CSA pickup location for produce from Greensgrow Farms, beginning Thursday, June 1.
CSA stands for community (or city) supported agriculture, which means members buy a share of a farm’s produce for the season. Essentially, members pay a fee and receive weekly deliveries of food from the farm.
In this case, the deliveries will be sent to Urban Farmer for pickup by members on Thursdays from 4-6 p.m. Those with hectic work schedules might find it easier to grab produce and go, rather than spend time searching for healthy or organic options in a supermarket.
To participate, sign up and choose what share works best.
Greensgrow works with a variety of local farms, including:
• New Jersey’s Blueberry Bill Farms – Family-owned and located on 120 acres off the Atlantic City Expressway.
• Delaware’s Fifer Orchards – Been in the family since 1919.
• Pennsylvania’s Wholesome Dairy Farms – Grass-fed cows produce unpasteurized milk, as well as cultured milk products like yogurt, ricotta and feta.
Urban Farmer will also sign up for a share and use the seasonal produce in dishes and cocktails throughout the summer (be on the lookout for the CSA Cocktail).
Thursdays beginning June 1
4-6 p.m. | $21-$39 per share
