Getting a share in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in New York City can be like getting into Tenjune on a Saturday night. And if you haven’t applied for the upcoming season yet, time is running out.
Wining and dining the farmers is one way to get a spot, but they’re probably too busy planting radishes for all those other seasonal-produce-loving bastards already on the list.
We’re here to help. The more established CSAs tend to build loyalty, so they sell out first. But these three recently launched CSAs are brand new, so you’ve got a good shot at getting your supply of summer veggies after all. Just be quick about it. Seriously.
