Hello, I would like to continue with the CSA for 2018. We picked up at Pure Pastures on Telegraph. I didn’t see they are an option in the dropdown to register. Will this still be an option in 2018? They are a very convenient location for us and we frequent their stores.

Thanks for your reply.

    Hi Monica, did you get an answer to your question yet? Thanks for being a member. Pure Pastures will be an option again this year but only for half-shares (every other week) since not many weekly members signed up there. Hope this works for you and please email if you’re not able to sign up or have other questions!

How do I join the CSA? I know it’s late in the year, but I’m interested! We live in Hamtramck, just for a reference. Thanks!

    Hi Frances, sorry to not see this earlier. We are no longer taking sign ups this year but check back in October for our 2020 sign up.

I’m a single vegetarian, so would half share be a better idea for me?

    Hi Lyn- It really depends on how much you cook and to what extent what you cook is vegetables! If you are a cook all your meals at home kind of person I think you could easily use a full share.

Hello

Our son and his wife joined a CSA in Washington DC and we would like to join here in Detroit area. Is that still possible at this date? Also, we would like to pick up our food at Pure Pasture in Dearborn. How do we sign up for that option? Thanks so much! Looking forward to hearing from you.

HI I want to sign up for a half order at Food Field but apparently its wait list only, so sad!. I can’t tell if my desire to be on the waitlist is noted . Can you confirm for me?

Thank you!

Hi, I paid today at Food Field for full share, returning member, Saturday pick up. Thank you!

Urban farmers expecting full harvest with co-op | Michigan news · April 15, 2014 at 5:30 am

[…] This farm, and five others like it, compose City Commons, a farming cooperative started by a group of young farmers who want to make a living from farming. They’re selling weekly shares, using a model called community-supported agriculture (CSA), for their third season. For $425, share-holders get a box of produce for 20 weeks, and the experience of eating off the land. Detroit land (http://www.citycommonscsa.com). […]
