Mix and Match Full Share

$550.00

Dollar General Parking lot (Henderson st and Fremont St) Wednesday 2:30pm-5:00pm 

 

Pick up this CSA box at our farm stand in Galesburg in the dollar general parking lot and you have the option to select the produce that goes into it. Large  mix and match shares will come with 6-8 different veggies, chosen from a dozen or so different in-season options every week. These are a good size for larger families, or for splitting between friends. Typically, the large share will fill a big reusable grocery bag each week. Build your own share with your favorite veggies! Runs the full season June 2nd through October 27th.

Description

Traditionally, CSA shares are put together each week by the farmer, without any option to customize. Mix and Match full shares, though, will give members the chance to select parts of their own box every week. Here’s how it works: Mix and Match share members will pick up at our farm stand in Dollar Genereal parking lot on Henderson St. . With a large Mix and Match share, you’ll be able to take 6-8 different items of your choice from the table. So, for example, one week in the middle of July might have the option to take 3 things from this list: 1 quart box tomatoes, 2 large bell peppers, 1 quart box red potatoes, 1 dozen ears of sweet corn; and 3 things from this list: 2 zucchini, 4 cucumbers, 3 onions, a pint of cherry tomatoes, 1 quart box of green beans, or an eggplant. Doubling up on one item would be an option, too (you want more tomatoes? you can take two boxes rather than one, and just take one other item from the first list!).

Each week will vary some in its customization; in the early season, we’ll have fewer options, so you may only have 7 or 8 items to choose from. Mid-season and later, you’ll have more extensive options. We’ll have clear instructions posted at the pick up and included in our weekly newsletter, so you’ll always know what’s available. 

The large mix and match share is comparable in size to our traditional full-share option. It’s great for a larger family that does lots of cooking, or for splitting between friends. Typically, your share will fill a big reusable grocery bag each week.
