In the last few years people have become more aware about the importance of fresh locally grown produce. In addition to the superior quality and freshness that can be delivered by your local farmer, there are many environmental reasons to ‘buy local.” But not everyone has access or time to visit their local farmer’s markets. And not everyone wants to invest in a CSA membership. A new start-up company called CitySprout was created to bring fresh locally grown produce to your neighborhood.
Here is how it works. . . Simply visit the CitySprout website and register your location or neighborhood. CitySprout will pair you with a local farmer who can deliver to your area. If you have neighbors who would also like a delivery you encourage them to register too. When there are enough people interested, the farmer will take orders from each person and deliver their orders to a designated representative in the neighborhood. All you have to do is pick up your order from your neighbor when it’s delivery day! The farmer will have a variety of produce available based upon their season and harvest. There are no delivery fees and the prices are set by the farmers. According to CitySprout, the farmers prices are competitive with other options like CSA’s and farmer’s markets. And unlike CSA’s, you can order in smaller quantities or by the box. It’s a great way to support local farmers and get the best available produce in your area.
