CSA, Market & Thanksgiving Notes
Reminder – our main CSA season has come to a close and our fall CSA extension begins this week. There is no Tuesday farm pickup for the fall CSA. Pickup on the farm is on Fridays, 12:30-5:30pm. Delivery to District in New Haven remains on Wednesday afternoons. A newsletter with info for this week’s CSA will go out on Wednesday.
For those of you who pickup at District, please return any boxes you have back to District, we need them for the fall CSA! And for anyone who got the egg option or purchased our eggs, please return any of our egg cartons you may have, as long as they are still in good condition. We do not need non-Massaro egg cartons at this time.
If you did not sign up for the fall CSA you can still get a taste of Massaro at some upcoming farmers markets, stock up for Thanksgiving with one of our produce bundles, and sign up now for the 2024 CSA season. Check out the details below.

We offer sliding scale pricing, so you can self select the tier that fits for you.
