and baby greens), and there is generally a large helping of bigger cooking greens
including kales, collards, leaf broccoli or broccoli raabs, chards, and other asian
greens. Also, each week there will be a few additional items in each share ranging
from sweet hakurei turnips, sweet carrots, baby bok choy, cabbages, onions, potatoes, radishes, sweet potatoes, or winter squash. CSA pickup is from 4:30-6:30
pm on Tuesdays evenings.
CSZ Member Rates for Fresh Produce: The total cost of one full share for CSZ
members is $700 for 22 pickup dates, $32 per pickup. $350 for a half share with 11
pickup dates on alternating weeks.
Community Rates (CSZ Non-Members): The total cost of one full share for CSZ nonmembers is $736 for 22 pickup dates, just a little over $33 per pickup. $368 for a half
