CSA FAQs

What is a veggie box? 

It is a weekly subscription to a "veggie share".  Each week, members receive 6-16 items in their boxes comprised of a variety of in-season vegetables & popular herbs.  We grow over 40 varieties of vegetables.  

Do we have to pay all at once? 

No. We ask for a 25% down payment on your share. We can accept payments for the balance.

Do you help us with recipes and tips about storage?

Yes. We will provide tips and recipes on our website. We’ll let you know what’s in your box each week by email. If you are interested in a cookbook that will help you plan seasonal meals we recommend From Asparagus to Zucchini, 3rd edition.    

What if we leave the area and can't pick-up our box?

You may place your share on hold anytime during the growing season.  Please give us 48 hours notice if you aren’t coming; please contact us by text, phone or email. Another option is to share with a friend or neighbor who is available to pick up your share while your gone.  

What if I forget to pick-up my share?  

Please let us know. We can hold your share up to 48 hours. We are more than happy to hold it for you until you can pick it up.   

What if an item isn't the quality I expect from The Local Grocer? 

Please be kind and let us know.  We strive to give you the highest quality produce possible.  If we know about it we will gladly replace it or give you something of the same value.  (Please note that most items need refrigeration.  Your items were cooled down immediately upon picking and stored carefully.)
