ANN ARBOR – Want to join a Community Supported Agriculture program but don’t know where to start?

The 2020 Greater Washtenaw County CSA Fair is coming to Ann Arbor District Library’s downtown branch on Sunday, Feb. 16.

From noon to 3 p.m., meet more than a dozen area farmers and producers who offer subscriptions to their businesses. Aside from enjoying weekly deliveries of fresh, high-quality produce, CSAs help invest in local farms.

Typically, members sign up in the springtime and receive their subscription during the growing season. CSAs come in the form of farm fresh produce, flowers, meat and more, and vary from farm to farm.

On average, subscription programs cost $30 to $35 per week and offer pick ups at central locations or at local farmers markets.

Hosted by Taste the Local Difference, the event is free and family-friendly.
