Distro When/Where/How

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 12.12.13 PM2019 CSA members pick up shares between 5:30–8:15 p.m. every Tuesday, June 4 June 11 through October 29 November 5, at Crow Hill Cross Fit (1010 Dean Street, between Franklin and Classon Aves).

Here’s “Distro 101,” or everything you need to know about picking up your CSA share:

  • Please bring your own bags.
  • Sign in at the front table; a volunteer will confirm your shares.
  • Read the signs. Watch out for either/or choices and please be accurate about weighing and counting so someone arriving later doesn’t get shorted! DO NOT take any “extra” shares you haven’t purchased (eggs, fruit, flowers).
  • We cannot hold shares or arrange pick-ups outside scheduled distro hours. If you can’t get there between 5:30-8:15 p.m., ask a friend to pick up for you or reach out to other members through our Google Group.
      • IMPORTANT: If you send someone to pick up for you, make sure they bring bags and know which shares you purchase (for example, “veggies and eggs, but NO fruit or flowers”). Some of our biggest headaches result from non-members picking up for friends who roll up and treat the CSA like a free version of Whole Foods. So please: do your fellow CSA members a solid and educate your clique before you send them in your stead!

  • At 8:15 p.m. all unclaimed items are collected by a local food pantry.
  • Thanks for being part of the CSA and supporting small, sustainable farming! Now go home and cook yourself a delicious meal!
