      The prices on the CSA Membership is weekly, monthly? Trying to figure it out.

        A lot of the ones I have seen are seasonal memberships. Some areas offer a modified CSA with a little more flexibility in that you pay weekly. You can cancel your service for the week if you choose. Do research about the offerings in your area. Where are you?

      To those of you who live in the Triad, Triangle, or Wilmington areas of NC: The Produce Box (www.theproducebox.com) is a modified CSA with a little more flexibility and options than conventional CSA’s. All NC produce by NC farmers – can choose conventional or organic. You pay by the week so you can cancel service when you are gone on vacation (or if you just don’t need/ want it that week). I have researched CSA’s for about a year and a friend told me about this one. I am super excited because of it’s flexibility!
