You’ll have a chance to meet your local farmer face-to-face during Iowa City’s 10th Annual Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair.
The event, which is free, is 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 1, 2014, at the Iowa City Marketplace (formerly Sycamore Mall) at 1600 Sycamore St. in Iowa City.
Here is more about the fair from Local Foods Connection:
Meet local farmers and learn how you can enjoy local fresh produce throughout Iowa’s growing season!
Farmers that serve the Iowa City and Cedar Rapids region will be there! A CSA membership provides you with four to five months of delicious, healthy food ranging from vegetables, fruit, herbs, flowers, honey, eggs, and meat. You can become part of a larger community of farmers and consumers where you will find:
• Weekly fresh produce
• A connection to where your food is produced and who produces it
• Guaranteed seed money for farmers
• Support for sustainable farming
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between local farmers and community members who pay the farmer an annual membership fee to cover the production costs of the farm. In turn, members receive a weekly share of the harvest during the local growing season.
