Farmers' Market & Fresh and Local CSA

Three ways to support area farmers:  

Buy your weekly supply of fruits and veggies every Wednesday at the AU Farmers' Market.

OR

Subscribe to From the Farmer, selecting which weeks you'll receive fresh produce and goods from local farms and vendors on campus.

OR

Participate in Community Supported Agriculture, sit back, and let your weekly fruit and veggie supply come to you!

Three reasons to shop at a farmers' market or support your local farmers:

1. It's good for the environment. Less fuel and oil are consumed since the food doesn't need to be transported from other parts of the country. 

2. It's good for you. Local produce is usually fresher and tastes that much better...increasing the likelihood that you'll eat the recommended number of fruit and veggie servings daily. 

3. It's good for the community. You're supporting a local business and helping the economy.

The produce.

From the Farmer partners with dozens of local family farms to select the freshest, tastiest produce every week. The selection always changes and reflects the best of what's available. The produce is harvested and brought to you all in an average of 48 hours. The best part of about it - you get a personal account and delivery calendar, so you can customize your order anytime and pause your delivery as needed!

Deliveries are made to the AhealthyU Office (MGC 330-O) between 1 and 2pm on Tuesdays.

“What’s Fresh” newsletter.

From the Farmer sends out a weekly "What's Fresh" email highlighting the upcoming produce, plus a tasty seasonal recipe for inspiration!

Monthly billing and payment.

For your ease, you're only ever charged for produce you receive. No delivery charge, no membership fees, no upfront payments. You'll be prompted to input your credit card information when you sign up, and billing will occur once a month for the baskets you've already received.
