Very Vibrant Vegetables!

Online ordering is now open for City Fresh's 2017 season! We are busy getting everything ready just for you and yours! The farmers are busy planting seedlings, cleaning out the fields, doing all the little pre-season tasks they can to have the veggies you want ready come June 12th. They even tucked the strawberries in during that last cold snap to ensure they make it to June.

Volunteers are busy dreaming of cruciferous cultivars and how they form pleasing pyramidal shapes when stacked just so. They're keeping their calendars cleared to make sure they're ready for the watermelon bucket brigade. And they're finally using up the last of their winter squash. They shed a little tear with each visit to their grocery's produce department, knowing that those strawberries from Mexico just don't pack the flavor of something picked fresh this morning.

Doesn't all that sound like fun? Aren't you, Dear Shareholder, dreaming about strawberries too? Can't you imagine their little white flowers starting to bud? Don't you want to buy a quart or eight as an add-on to your first week's order? You know the first batch won't make the car trip home! How many do you need to make homemade jam? All those mason jars you collect have got to be useful for more than drinking out of. And while they may be adequate at holding paint brushes and displaying daffodils, their main aim is preservation.

It's time for dreaming of all the ways our summer lives will be better. How we do really need to insure the future of local foods, how it is so very important to invest in our communities, put our money where our mouths are, combat global warming and income inequality, make sure we're eating right, and be the change we want to see in the world! The answer is as simple as Very Vibrant Vegetables. City Fresh is here for you! Order now!

Tell your friends! Tell your co-workers! Join us this season! Remember, with week-to-week ordering and tiered pricing, City Fresh is the most flexible and affordable CSA in Northeast Ohio. We remain the only CSA with a commitment to expanding access to fresh food for all.
