I want to share some updates with you all about our CSA Share pickup process, and our market operations in general.
Good news is – the Share is still on! And we have a fully stocked market! However, in light of the new local and national recommendations, and in an effort to reduce the risk of transmission, we are moving to provide exclusively curbside service.
For the share, this means that we will pre-bag or box your share, and bring it out to your car (or bike) outside. For the time being, there will be no choices in the share, and no trade box. We will put your share in recycled farm boxes, and new (somewhat) compostable plastic bags. Though it was a tough decision to veer away from our zero waste practices in using these bags, we value the health and safety of our community above all else, and feel safer sending out unused bags.
When you arrive, please send us a text at 928-543-9803. We will bring out your share. Please have your passenger, backseat, or trunk door open, and we will put the share in directly rather than pass it off. Pick up times remain between 12pm-7pm.
If you’d like to “shop” in the market, please text us your shopping list ahead of time. We will call you to confirm when the order is ready and receive payment over the phone. We’ll shop for you, and bring your order and receipt out to your car.
Thank you for working with us to try to ‘flatten the curve.’ Our first priority is to help keep everyone safe and healthy – which also includes providing the freshest, healthiest produce available in Flagstaff. We’re hoping this will go as smoothly as possible on Thursday, but please bear with us as we engineer a completely new (and untested) way of operating. Thank you for your membership in the share and support of local agriculture and local business. Please reach out with any questions.
