I know this isn’t really Midtown Lunch’ish (fat man no like vegetables!), but for those of you who are interested in cooking and farmers markets and the such I thought you might be interested in this. A new CSA is launching in Midtown East this spring, and the pick up time is perfect for anybody who works in Midtown and likes to cook. CSA (for those of you who have never heard of it) stands for community supported agriculture and it’s essentially a chance for you to support sustainable farming by purchasing a share in a farm.
You give the farm money up front, before the growing season, and then every week during the harvest you get a portion of all the crops they grow. It costs about $20 a week, and it is always a gamble (the more or less that grows, the more or less you get), but based on last year’s bounty this seems like a really good farm. The delivery/pick up- which will happen every Tuesday from 5-8pm on 47th btw. 2+3rd- starts on the first week of June, but you have to join by the end of April.
