High Point Market Garden: Produce subscriptions available

(High Point Market Garden; WSB photo from July 2011)
Starting next Thursday, a new season of organic produce will be available via the High Point Market Garden – and the easiest way to get your share is to subscribe. Here’s the announcement we received:

The Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens CSA (community-supported agriculture) program is accepting subscribers for its farm-fresh organic produce. Each week subscribers receive up to 15 items of seasonal produce grown at the High Point Seattle Market Garden, a city of Seattle program that helps to establish safe healthy communities and economic opportunity in low-income neighborhoods.

The cost ranges from $15 to $25 a week based on size of the share with prorated shares available.

The pick-up location (in West Seattle), dates, and times:

High Point Market Garden (32nd Avenue SW and SW Juneau Street): Thursdays from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., June 6th through October 17

Community members can subscribe now by completing and mailing an application or contacting Julie Bryan, P-Patch Coordinator, at 206-257-8257.

Here’s the application form, which includes the mailing address. If you can’t or don’t want to commit to a subscription, the HP Market Garden also offers a weekly farm stand with on-the-spot sales – we’re checking to see when that will open for the season.

    I’ve never done these before but have been interested, especially because I can walk to the pickup location. What defines an “item?” Is that exactly 1 raddish or 1 head of lettuce, a typical measure of that produce 1 bushel of radishes/carrots, or a specific weight 1 pound of any given item? I guess that would help me gauge if I’d like a half or a whole order.

    The garden is looking awesome! I walk by several times per day and I can’t wait until they’re ready to trade some dollars for produce!

    I already use an organic produce delivery service, but I will be happy to patronize the Garden on an a la carte basis. Everything I’ve purchased there in the past has been high quality. The prices are very reasonable and the people are so friendly. Can’t wait ’til they’re open again. trickycoolj, my guess is if you’re dealing with something like radishes, spring onions, or carrots, 1 item would equal 1 bunch. Something like green beans or peas would probably be by the pound or half-pound. That has been my experience with CSAs, anyway.
