Our CSA provides the community with healthy, local produce at a price cheaper than the grocery store. Our prices are based on income levels so that our produce is affordable for everyone. And we accept food stamps (SNAP benefits). Distribution will occur on Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at 1275 Grand Concourse.

“For 14 years the Sixth Street Community Center CSA has provided its members with the freshest and best tasting produce available from local farms. Since 1996 more than 200 different varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs are provided June to November from our partner farms, Hepworth Farm in Ulster County, New York and Catalpa Ridge Farm in Sussex County, New Jersey.
Beginning in 2002, Sixth Street Community Center CSA has offered its members fruits and vegetables in the winter and spring months from late November to mid-May through Winter Sun Farms and other distributors.
Our CSA also offers wild Alaskan coho, sockeye and king salmon, cod, halibut and rockfish as well as olive oil, wines, honey, vinegars, and other specialty items. And this last season we started a raw milk and cheese club.”
“The GWCSA supports the Garden of Eve Farm of Riverhead, NY, a sustainable, certified-organic farm. Garden of Eve uses earth-friendly methods to farm in an environmentally sustainable way. With every yearly membership, the GWCSA helps stabilize the farm’s yearly operating budget by purchasing in advance a share of the season’s harvest.
We help the farm cover up-front costs of seed and labor when it’s needed most, at the beginning of the season before the crops come in. In return, members benefit in the bounty and the healthy lifestyle related to having a personal connection to a local organic farm. The farm provides, to the best of its ability, a healthy supply of seasonal fresh produce throughout the growing season—otherwise known as the “weekly share.””
“The Long Island City CSA program is a partnership between the residents of Long Island City and the Farm at Miller’s Crossing in Hudson, NY. We are proud to be a mixed income CSA, ensuring access to good food for people of all income levels.”
“Encompassing 200 acres in Dutchess County, NY, Sprout Creek Farm is really three different entities, distinct yet dynamically entertwined. It is a working farm, raising free-ranging cows, sheep, goats, wild turkeys, guinea fowl, chickens, and pigs.
It is a market, selling our internationally award-winning cheeses and farm-produced meats, as well as local Hudson Valley milk, eggs, vegetables, crafts, and gifts. And it is an educational center, offering day, weekend, and summer programs that help connect young people to the land, the seasons, and the plants and animals that co-exist here in harmonious rhythm.”
