CSAs: Get produce right from the source

Fresh ideas for getting boxes of local fruits and veggies.

When you sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) plan, you can get a box full of freshly picked fruits and veggies from local farms each week. Many CSA businesses offer options to add meat, poultry, eggs and flowers to your order too.

Check out these local farms for pick-up and home delivery options throughout the Seattle area:
