Are you looking to get more local and seasonal foods? Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a great option. CSAs are a system that connects consumers to local farmers.

How does it work? CSAs are is a mainly a membership-based program where most folks pay up front. A farmer offers shares. Think: a box of vegetables or a bag of produce, and individuals can purchase by receiving a box or bag of farm products each week. Keep reading for a few CSAs in the Charleston area.

Community Supported Grocery (CSG) | Charleston

In partnership with Lowcountry Street Grocery, CSG is a “grassroots local food delivery.” The team sorts and delivers local groceries with a menu, recipes, produce info, and dietary restriction compliance every week.

Legare Farms | Johns Island

This program provides half and full shares for local vegetables that will start again in November. They also offer summer biweekly vegetable bags.

Gruber Farms | St. George

The spring season runs from April through July, and the fall season from late August to late November, with small, medium, and large share options.

Twenty Bag | Edisto Island

Stay tuned every Monday at 12 p.m. There is a post on Instagram, its website, and Facebook about what is available to purchase. Individuals have until Wednesday at 12 p.m. to place their order, and deliveries are made on Thursday to six drop-off locations around the Lowcountry.

City Editor Erika here. I have enjoyed learning about different CSAs in the Charleston area. If you know of another one, send it to us, and we’ll add it to the list.
