The days are getting shorter, the leaves are getting redder, and the crops are ripe for harvest—right here in Philadelphia! At HipCityVeg, we source locally whenever possible, for the environment, for the community, and for taste. You can get in on the action in your own kitchen by joining a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. What’s a CSA, you ask? It’s a subscription to a local farm where you got a box of their goods. Cut out the middleman and get to know your food by directly partnering with local farmers—seasonal produce picked just for you. Register alone or with some friends, and get farm fresh foods delivered right to your neighborhood!
Here are some of our favorite CSAs of the season:
