At the CSA Fair, customers will have the opportunity to meet local farmers and businesses that offer CSA programs and buying clubs, learn about their farms or businesses, and select a share or club that best meets their needs! They can also buy products from many of the vendors (as well as other vendors) that will be selling at the Market. We encourage customers to connect with farmers and producers directly to learn about specific CSA options, how the entire systems works, and how to make different CSA options work for everyone's individual schedule and budget.

 

What is a CSA? A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) allows customers committed to the local economy an opportunity to connect on a deeper level than purchasing from a retail store, and even differently than making purchases at a farmers market. With the CSA method of doing business, farms offer fresh food products through annual subscriptions, or a flat fee, that a customer pays for upfront once a year in exchange for a portion of those farmers’ products. The products are then delivered weekly or monthly to a central pick-up location or made available for pick up at Urbana-Champaign farmers' markets.
