  • What You’re Eating This Week

    This week we’re wrapping up our Show Us Your Share contest. We’ve really enjoyed seeing pictures of your shares and what you’re making with them. It’s been so much fun! Please keep sending those pictures in, and we’ll post them here on our website.

Show Us Your Share!

Join us in celebrating CSA this summer with a little contest we’re calling Show Us Your Share!

Our mission is to promote Community Supported Agriculture, and we invite you to join us by sharing pictures of your CSA share (or a meal/dish made with your share) between July 4 and July 18. Post your picture on our Facebook page, tag Portland Area CSA Coalition on Facebook, or email your photo to us.

Have fun and be as fancy as you want to be. We hope you’ll participate to celebrate farmers and CSA with us, but we also have a few small, farm-themed prizes to give away, too. We’ll draw winners from the names of those who participate. We look forward to seeing your photos.

Here are a few photos from this week’s shares.
