As a member of the West Philly Foods CSA Program, you will receive a weekly box packed with fresh fruits and vegetables from May through October. What makes West Philly Foods unique? We source all of our produce from Philadelphia-based urban and rural farms. In doing this, we are actively supporting a growing network of young farmers in our region.
A complete local food system should be supported from farmer to food entrepreneur. Beyond supporting our urban and rural farms, West Philly Foods offers a unique array of value-added options, in addition to your fruit and vegetable share. Many of these entrepreneurs are producing their products in the Dorrance H. Hamilton Center for Culinary Enterprises, a project of The Enterprise Center CDC. Our expanding list of value-added options for 2016 include:
- Local Cheese, Yogurt and Butter
- Fresh Bread
- Whole Nut and Fruit Bars
- Prepared Soups
- Seasonal Savory Pastries
Please visit our Partner page for more information on each of our partners!
