Come out for Skagit Valley's 1st Meet your Farmer CSA Fair, where community members can learn about getting farm fresh, healthy food in one convenient weekly box. With meal kits and online delivery on the rise, a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share allows customers to enjoy the benefits of convenience and eating well, while supporting local farms. CSA programs also let you skip the middle man and forgo busy box stores, all while ditching plastic packaging and creating less waste with food that was grown minutes from your dining room table. Join us on March 21st at Farmstrong Brewing Co., for a chance to meet local farms, learn about their growing practices, and choose a CSA program that fits your lifestyle and your budget. With Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, we have access to the cleanest, healthiest, freshest food, sourced directly from the farm, and at an affordable price. 30% | The amount you save, on average from buying a Community Supported Agriculture share vs. buying the same organic produce at any other grocer. $25-40 | The cost on average of a weekly box – packed full of quality food that’s a great value AND supports local farmers. The Meet your Farmer CSA Fair is co-hosted by Washington Young Farmers Coalition and Tilth Alliance.
