Visit Valley Roots Food Hub CSA ➙ Valley Roots Food Hub CSA “Local Food, Local People” Building the Local Food Economy is here and now. The CSA Online Market is NOW OPEN! Greetings Fellow Eaters of South Central Colorado, The Valley Roots Food Hub is a regional aggregator and distributor of local foods. We build relationships in our communities by serving producers, grocers, restaurants, and institutions with the most fresh, and highest quality local foods from your friends and neighbors. Now we are excited to be offering our 1st Winter Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fresh Box and CSA Online Market to you! The Winter CSA Fresh Box is both a membership into the CSA Program, and TWO winter distributions of Colorado storage crops and greenhouse production. The online CSA Market is a cutting-edge, informative, and effective way to shop for the freshest and best local foods right from the source. Here's how it works: Sign Up: Interested folks can register for an account here: Become a Member: Select the 2015/16 Winter CSA for $100 under Memberships (near the end of the catalog). This is the Winter CSA Distribution Box which includes the Shareholder Dues which will allows you to use the CSA Market. The Winter CSA Share includes all the local, FRESH foods from our region that can be procured at this time of year. You can look forward to: Squash (1+ varieties) Onions (1+ varieties) Garlic (1+ varieties) Potatoes (3+ varieties) Carrots Mushrooms (2+ varieties) Quinoa Honey Greenhouse head lettuce (1+ varieties) Basil Kale This list is an example only, the final list may change depending availability and market conditions, but will come out to the $100 value. Like the spirit of a traditional CSA, half the excitment is in the element of surprise. Shop: Once you have selected the Winter CSA, you can shop for all the other items in the Market, such as meats, grocery items, eggs, and dairy. These items are charged separately from the Winter CSA Box of FRESH items. Just click on each item to add them to your shopping cart. Meats are on a per pound basis and are all unique so just make your selections and we will adjust the poundage and pricing before we send it out. Payment: Payments are made via credit card at checkout. Your card won't be charged until about a week after placing the order. SNAP EBT payments will be available soon. Delivery: The 2015/16 Winter Fresh Box will be composed of TWO Boxes on TWO different delivery days. One on December 18, 2015 and the other on January 16th, 2016. The other items you purchase from the CSA Market will also come on those days. If there is enough demand we will likely contiunue CSA Market deliveries every month. The pick up locations will be the same as for the summer CSA: Alamosa, Local Food Coalition Office by 12 pm Crestone, Chokecherry Farm by 2pm Saguache, 4th St Food Store, by 3pm Salida, 5th and D St by 5 pm. Deadlines: Your Winter CSA is due as soon as possible (so we can plan) and the CSA Market items will be due the Tuesday 4 pm before that Friday's delivery.
