Farmer's market vs. CSA -- preferences?
Which do you like better, shopping at the farmer's market or belonging to a CSA (community supported agriculture)? Why?
If you've only done one or the other, what do you like about the experience?
I like farmer's markets because I can just pick up a little of this or a little of that and not see it go to waste in our small household, as would be the case if we belonged to a CSA.
At the CSA I joined, for a very good sum of money, I did not get all of the produce they advertised as part of the package. I had enough leafy veggies to supply the whole town, but only got a few other salad items to go with it.
I have gone to many Farmers Markets and prefer to shop this way. I am still supporting local farms, but I am getting what I would like to eat for a few days. I am lucky that I can go to a Farmers Market any day of the week but Sunday. I also enjoy this type of food shopping knowing that my produce or fruit is fresh picked, organic and will be enjoyed by the whole family.
