Yes, it's true! Local vegetables and farm products are available all year long, even when snow inevitably falls.
Harvest season is here and farmers’ market stalls overflow with produce. But we all know that cold and snow and empty fields lurk just around the corner.
Snow-covered fields do not signal the end of local farm products, however. Several farms in central New York offer winter CSAs, which provide weekly boxes of produce throughout the winter months. Plus, the Ithaca Farmers Market runs until December and starts up again in early spring. And, Garden Gate Delivery sources local foods all year long as well.
Here are some local farms offering winter CSAs. Contact them directly for information. If you know of a winter CSA that is not listed here, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
