CSA Season Begins

The Boulder Farmer’s Market kicked off last weekend—and next weekend, most ski mountains shut down for the season. Which means that right now, you’re probably thinking more about skinny carrots than skinny skis. If that’s the case, you’ve got many options to get your hands on the season’s produce.

Of course, there are the farmer’s markets (in Boulder and Denver), but there are also countless CSAs. These Community Supported Agriculture programs allow you to buy a share of a farm and receive regular deliveries, all summer long, of the farm’s best. Early summer, greens will fill your fridge. Mid-summer, expect juicy, red tomatoes. And late summer, watch out for squash and pumpkin.

To kick start the CSA season, Eileen, our in-house CSA devotee, and our Culinary Team share their favorite local programs:

Stone Bridge Farm CSA
Ollin Farms
Oxford Gardens Boulder
Grant Family Farms

Please let us know if you have others.
