Get Groceries With Your CSA Shares

Did you know you could be shopping local farms at the same time you pick up your weekly CSA shares? Plus, Lewis Waite Farms provides free delivery to all Sunnyside CSA members.

Meat, eggs and yogurt are some of the most popular items, but there’s plenty beyond that. There’s also cheese, breads, pastas, drinks, other pantry and dairy items–even frozen pizzas! On top of free delivery, prices can beat farmer’s markets and organic grocery stores.

Orders come twice a month, and you can order as late as Monday for Thursday pick-up that same week. (Although they do try to accommodate late orders, items are not guaranteed. Plus the sooner you order, the more options you have.) You can pay online or when you pick up.

The next order is scheduled to deliver July 6th, so you still have time to order!

Special Products Shares Announced!

We have added a whole bunch of new special products for the 2014 season! I’m talking kombucha, fermented foods, wine, and eggs–plus, we’re bringing back the ever popular dairy, fish, beer, and herb shares.

In addition, Lewis Waite Farms has created share plans for all kinds of different products, including bread, organ meats, cheese, meat, and more. You can always order a la carte from Lewis Waite, but if you’d like them to do the work for you, sign up for a share plan.

All of the details and a link to the sign up form can be found on our new Special Products page. You may never need to go to the grocery store again!

Want to Join the CSA Core Group?! Opening for a Special Products Coordinator Position

As we transition to winter and cool-weather veggies, the CSA Core Group is also making a few changes, and we need your help! To keep the CSA running, we have an immediate need for a new Special Products Coordinator. If you want to get to know your community better, get more involved with the world of local, organic food, and want to learn more about sustainable farming in and around NYC, here’s a great opportunity!

Special Products Coordinator
This person coordinates logistics for all CSA products outside of the regular Golden Earthworm vegetable and fruit shares. They are the primary contact for, and liaison with, the farms that provide us with meat, eggs, dairy and frozen veggies (aka: Lewis Waite Farms, Milk Not Jails and Winter Sun Farms). Remember, all Core Group members are volunteers and this position requires that you be available to communicate with our partnering farms, answer CSA member questions, and attend our monthly Core Group meetings. Needless to say, if you become a Core Group member, it will fulfill your volunteer requirement for the CSA.

So if you’re organized, sociable, and interested in getting more involved in the running of the CSA, we need you!

CONTACT US if you’re interested or curious.
