I am so excited, today was the first day of receiving my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box of fresh produce at the Farmer’s Market.
Eating well and being as healthy as possible is so important to me, it feels GREAT to support local farmers and their families and keep funding our community.
I got to meet the farmers I’ll be supporting and receiving produce from, it was awesome. I received three big bags of lettuce and some green onions. I quickly rushed home, washed the produce and made up a salad – oh – my – gosh! It was divine! Protein shakes and salad for dinner, a perfect Spring meal.
I thought going this route would be pretty expensive, but with the price of organic foods at the grocery store and the fact that fresh produce out here is very, very difficult to find, I think I’ve made a good decision.
For those who can afford it, I highly recommend CSAs – there is something very nurturing about meeting the person or persons who grow your food, look them in the eye, shake their hand, and know you’re both making a difference in each other’s lives. It really is quite awesome!
