Enrollment is open for Lemon Street Market community supported agriculture (CSA) shares. Now in its third year, the CSA offers a weekly or every-other-week box filled with local, chemical-free and non-genetically modified (non-GMO) produce. A local fruit item is included each week at no extra cost.
“The farmland in Lancaster County has some of the richest, most productive, non-irrigated agricultural soils in the world,” explains CSA coordinator Amy Yocum. “We have a working relationship with several local, chemical-free and organic farmers. Our CSA offers the best that each farmer has to offer during the peak of the growing season.”
CSA members receive a weekly email describing share contents, along with recipes and information about the local farms where items were grown. Other features include a “skip week”, when CSA members are out of town, they will receive a $25 store gift card; and a “swap box” where items can be left or traded.
30 shares are available. Cost: $500/full share for 17 weeks; $250/half share for 8 weeks;deposits due April 15; full payment due May 30. Location: 241 W. Lemon St., Lancaster. Sign up in the store or by visiting LemonStreetMarket.com.
