A Manhattan CSA that operates like a curbside convenience store

Starting this Saturday, the Holton Farms Truck will pull up in front of the Solaire, a green, LEED-certified building in Battery Park City, to deliver seasonal CSA bounty from Westminster, Vermont.

The lucky residents, who must bank credit in advance (minimum: $250), can come down and shop from the Farm Truck from 9:00-11:00 in the morning. Vegetables, herbs, fruit, cage-free eggs, hormone and antibiotic-free meats, artisanal breads, cheeses, ice cream, maple syrup, and honey will be available depending on the season. The program runs through the end of November.

Unlike traditional CSAs, you only order what you want when you want from the truck. No overstock of zucchini dumped on your doorstep, or gads of beets when what you really want are sweat peas and corn. You also don’t have the burden of weekly pick-ups—which are often scheduled at insanely inconvenient times for people who work conventional hours. So if you’re away for two weeks it doesn’t matter, you just need to spend all your credit by the time the Farm Truck stops its deliveries on November 21.

CSAs like this that offer more personal choice—both in terms of food offered and scheduling—definitely make it much easier for more New Yorkers to bring farm food to their tables.
