Next Stop on the CSA-Express, Marathon Grill!

At farms all across the region, spring planting is now well under way. That means that it’s time to start making plans for how you’re going to get some of that delicious fresh produce into your kitchen. For some, a weekly trip to your neighborhood farmers’ market is the way to go. However, if you prefer a less hand-on approach, consider joining a Community Supported Agriculture program.

A CSA (also known on occasion as a farm share) is a program in which you pay a set amount to a farm at the beginning of the season. In exchange, you receive a box of food each week (or every other week, depending on whether you bought a full or half share). The items in your box will vary depending on the CSA you choose. Some are strictly produce, while others include meats, dairy products, eggs and baked goods.

If you’re in the market for a CSA, we’ve just heard that Marathon Grill has partnered with Lancaster Farm Fresh, and is a new pick-up site for CSA deliveries. This is fabulously convenient for Center City residents!

Marathon Locations:

10th & Walnut
Broad & Chestnut
19th & Market
19th & Spruce

Join the Lancaster Farm Fresh CSA program to receive your share of fruits, veggies, flowers and herbs. The deliveries last June-October. Sign-ups end May 15.
