OUR CUSTOMIZABLE CSA SHARE PUTS YOU IN CONTROL - AND GIVES YOU FIRST DIBS ON ALL THE VEGGIES WE GROW
What is a CSA? - Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system of growing and distributing vegetables that restores the link between farmers and the surrounding community. CSA members purchase a "share" in the farm before the growing season starts, which allows us (your farmers!) to finance the growing season. In exchange you receive a weekly share of farm fresh veggies! We have 3 different CSA programs throughout the growing season. Our CSA programs are customizable, which means you can log into your CSA account and remove and/or add items to your box. Each week you will receive a pre-built box which you can customize to your liking by removing items you dont like and replacing them with items you enjoy! If you add extra veggies to your box (for friends or family members- or maybe your entertaining on the weekend) thats great too! Our software will bill your credit card and we will have your extras ready for pickup with the rest of your CSA share- so you wont have to wait in line at the Market Booth to buy extras this year. This also means that our members will get first dibs on some of the more popular seasonal items (think- sweet peas!) before they even hit the Market booth. Our CSA boxes are distributed at the Thunder Bay Country Market on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 6:30pm. Click here to read our CSA policy.
Our spring CSA runs from April 26th to June 28th (10 weeks in 2023). Each weekly share is valued at $30 and will be customizable. We have limited varieties of veggies in the spring due to our cool climate - so there might not be tons of options for customizing but there should be enough variety to make a few switches if you dont like an item in the box. The spring program is heavy on greens like lettuce and spinach (these plants love the cool weather) - so if your not a "greens" family this might not be for you! Sign ups are open now!

SUMMER CSA PROGRAMS
Our summer programs have the widest selection and most diverse offerings. Everything from lettuce to potatoes to greenhouse tomatoes and eggplant. Our summer programs are 12 weeks long and run from July 5th to September 20th.

The Large share averages out to about $45 a week in veggies - it is fully customizable so you can tailor it to your needs, and you can always add extras if your family is larger or if you find you need more to last the week!
The "Small" share is well suited for a family of 2-3 people who eat veggies on a daily basis. The Small share averages out to about $32 a week in veggies - it is fully customizable so you can tailor it to your needs, and you can always add extras if your family is larger or if you find you need more to last the week!
