CSAs and recipes

(article, Kim Carlson)

Chef and author Deborah Madison, a [/columns/deborah regular] on this site who was interviewed last week over at The Jew and The Carrot, says that she's begun to see a new way for farmers to get their goods to market:

bq.Another thing I’m seeing is a different form of CSA — where someone puts together food from a group of farmers. Instead of a person getting chard and endless bunches of kale, they get a box that has a dozen eggs, a chicken or cheese, an array of vegetables, and maybe a baked good. So it’s somewhere between a store and a farmers’ market. It’s still all local, but it’s kind of like a shopping service. I think it’s very interesting that people are thinking in these innovative ways. 

Have you seen this kind of system in your community?
