Well folks, it’s that time of year again. What time you say? CSA sign-up time!

Several of Portland Farmers Market’s vendors offer CSAs with options to suit your needs. The following is a list of our farms who are still taking new members or who have on-going options throughout the 2013 growing season; some even offer pro-rated pricing.

Many farms invite members to get their hands dirty with some farm-work in exchange for CSA shares or if that’s not your style, most welcome farm visits. What better way is there to directly connect with the food you’re eating and the resources put into growing it?

It’s easy:

1. Download the following chart, which has all the information you need to get started:
