Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Interested consumers purchase a share/membership/subscription and in return receive a box/bag/basket of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. Featured CSA options include vegetables, fruits, pasture-raised meats, eggs, apples, blueberries, honey, flowers and more.
Admission is free. Location: 500 N. Dunton Ave. For more information, call 847-230-0544 or visit KYFChicago.org.
