CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA is a “subscription” to a farm to receive a weekly box of produce. It’s a way to support your local farms and eat healthy all summer. The farmers markets of Chelsea, Grass Lake, Manchester, Stockbridge, and Dexter have produced a directory of the CSAs in our area. Members will have access to weekly boxes of fresh, locally produced food, and many CSAs offer pickup at your local farmers market. If you are a farmer and want to join our CSA directory, sign up here.
