What is a CSA?  CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  The general idea is that a group of members each pay a sum before the growing season and in return, receive a box or share of produce every week during the growing season.  This benefits both parties in that the farmer gains access to capital money in order to purchase supplies needed, like seeds, before any income is generated at farmers markets.  The members receive a regular source of high-quality, organically-grown vegetables from May through October. 

For our CSA program, we choose the produce each week.  In our Market Bucks program, you receive the same financial bonus as our CSA folks, but you get to pick from what is available on our table when you come to either the Pullman or Moscow Markets and you don't have to come every week!

How Much? Our CSA shares, sized for 2-3 adults costs $400.  We ask that you place a $75 deposit to hold your share and Full payment is due within 1 month of signup. 

For our Market Bucks program, there is a $400 Large share or $200 Medium Share option.  The Large share gets you the full additional 15% that the CSA folks receive in value for your commitment.  The Medium share, gets 10% additional value.  Again, we ask a $75 deposit with full payment due within 1 month.

If the payments are a financial challenge for your family, please let us know: there are options!!!  We believe that access to fresh, healthy food is something that all families deserve, regardless of financial means.

What is the"Market Season"? Our market season runs from mid-May through mid-October, based on the Pullman Farmer's Market Season and the weather.  Our main pick-up will be at the Pullman Farmer's Market, Wednesdays from 3:30-6:30pm in the WSU Brelsford Visitor Center!  The Moscow Market runs every weekend in May-October.  We will email all of our members our official schedule prior to the first markets.

What exactly do I get? Designed to feed 2-3 adults or a young family consisting of 2 adults and 1-2 younger children, our CSA balances variety with just about the right amount to be most of your full weekly vegetable consumption.  Some weeks you may find a vegetable not included that simply must be had for your favorite recipe.  Some weeks, you may find your refrigerator still has produce from last week.  Each week you can guarantee that you'll find staple items such as salad mix or plenty of tomatoes while also finding surprises most weeks like Kohlrabi or a funky looking summer squash or one of over ten varieties of winter squash.  For the Market Bucks members, You get to choose what and when you'd like to have different types of produce and how much.  You are limited to what is available on the market table.  With our wide variety of produce expected, you should be able to be as varied or not as your family prefers! 

Different types and varieties of produce will all rotate through the shares and our table as the seasons change and progress.  Salads and baby things come early to freshen our diets and tantalize our tastebuds.  Peas tempt us in June, beans in July.  Tomatoes don't arrive in force until mid July, watermelons show up in August and September.  Greens change throughout the season.  There is a plethora of summer squash from July through frost and Winter Squash swamp our booths in September and October.    Kales last all season, broccoli and cabbage are best in spring and fall.  Carrots and beets arrive by June and hang out all season, sweet and crunchy.  Radishes, turnips, asian greens, arrive early to fill out salads and tempt us with their juicy pizzazz.  Fennel, dill, parsley, cilantro, green onions, storage onions, garlic, potatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and many other things all make their appearances.  Some make it every week, some are quick and not to be missed.  some are for enjoying over a sink or before you leave the market, some are to be preserved for enjoying all winter.

What if I don't fit your design?  Try our Market Bucks program!  It's meant to provide significantly more flexibility for folks who might be gone most of the summer on vacation or have erratic schedules that don't always allow you to make it to the Pullman Market.  With two sizes to choose from currently, it also is meant to allow you to gain access to some of CSA's financial benefits even if you are just feeding yourself, aren't sure how much produce you can handle each week, or want a smaller weekly portion but don't have a friend you can split a regular CSA share with.

If you are ready to try a standard CSA Share, rest assured!  We have a wide variety of folks who fit in well!  We have a few customers that manage to eat just about everything as a single person.  We also have had 3-4 people sharing 1-3 shares.  It totally depends on just how many vegetables your family typically eats and how much your creative juices are flowing.  Each week provides plenty of vegetables and you might have to get creative if you're on your own or aren't as experienced in preparing vegetables for dinner regularly.  (Don't worry, we can help you with that!)  If your family is much bigger or simply eats a TON of veggies (AWESOME!) you might consider buying two shares for each week.  Or you might buy a share and know that you'll have to supplement to fill out your weekly meal plan.  Each week, our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children aged 11, 9, almost 5) easily is able to clean out 2 CSA shares worth not counting what we preserve for winter.  Then again, nobody eats vegetables like a vegetable farmer!
