CSA’s remain a wonderful way to connect with farms and fresh food. This year there are a couple of major changes in the local CSA scene. Craig Sewell will no longer offer a CSA through his restaurant and cookery school, A Cook’s Cafe. Also, I have been unable to contact Ivy Brand, so I am not sure if that CSA is still offered.
Here is a list of everyone else I was able to contact to confirm they are active and ready for enrollments. One exception to this list is Bear’s Honey Pot, which recently opened in Gambrills. I was not able to get firm details from their office, but I know that they have a great program in place.
Agriberry is an all-berry CSA based in Virginia and operated by Annapolitan Susan Noyce, whose family owns Agriberry farm. Susan brings her strawberries, raspberries, jams, jellies, honey and other fruits and vegetables to Annapolis once a week.
