CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Groups in Jersey City

With Spring right around the corner it is a great time to start thinking about enrolling in a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group.  By joining a CSA you are supporting a local farm through your membership and in return you benefit by receiving a steady stream of fresh produce throughout the season, usually once a week at a pick-up location in the neighborhood.  You also have an opportunity to volunteer, either/or at the pick-location or a day at the farm.

Here are a few CSAs with pick-ups in downtown Jersey City:
