I joined the Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative CSA because I wanted to support local farmers, and because I thought the highly variable contents of each week's delivery would force me to eat more fruits and vegetables and learn to cook with a wider variety of ingredients. The cooperative includes 75 Lancaster County farms, and the CSA subscription runs 25 weeks, until late October.
This past Monday, I received my first share (right now it is only vegetables, fruits will start appearing later), conveniently dropped off at the CHOP building on 35th and Market:
- Bok choy
- Pink radishes
- White mushrooms
