Winter CSA in Kalamazoo

Posted 11/29/2016 9:16pm by Trent Thompson.

Winter Vegetable Share Deadline is Dec. 1!

Please share widely.

We hope all our customers had a good Thanksgiving. We are grateful for the warm weather, as it has allowed us to keep plugging away on the new hoophouses. They are almost done!

This is Green Gardens' first ever winter share season. We have been working with root storage and hoophouses since 2009, learning how to store and grow food in the winter time. We now have the confidence and infrastructure (600 square feet of coolers and nearly 1 acre of hoophouses) necessary to offer winter shares to our Kalamazoo Market Customers.

Our winter credit customers are rewarded with additional bump in spending credit over the course of the winter. Here's the breakdown:

1. Small - $200 = $220 spending credit (10% extra)

2. Medium - $300 = $335 spending credit (11.6% extra)

3. Large - $400 = $450 spending credit (12.5% extra)

As always, you get to use your credit on whatever you want on the Green Gardens' stand. You can come to market on whatever Saturdays you wish. Members need to use their credit during the winter market calendar dates.

Market will be held at the Bingo Hall across from the Kalamazoo Bank Street Farmers Market from 8-12:30 PM on the following seventeen Saturdays:

12/3, 12/10, 12/17, 12/31, 2/4, 2/11, 2/18, 2/25, 3/4, 3/11, 3/18, 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15, 4/22, 4/29

Crops that will be available include: kale, collards, swiss chard, sunchokes, radishes, watermelon radishes, salad turnips, onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, parsnips, cabbage, kohlrabi, kalettes, spinach, salad, fresh and dried herbs.

  • We will also buy organic apples from the Country Mill in Charlotte during December.
  • Hiday Farms grass-fed yogurt and cheese (colby and pepper jack) will also be available.

  • Recipes will be included in e-mails and the Veggie Blog prior to market.
  • All produce sold is raised using organic practices
  • Pay with check, cash (at market), credit card, or Dwolla (online check)
