Linn County Local Farmer and CSA Fair

Over the past twenty years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become an increasingly popular way for consumers to purchase local, seasonal food directly from the person who grows it. A person can become a member of a CSA and in return receive a box or share of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. The box can include vegetables or other farm products.

CSA's are sprouting up all over Linn County. On Sunday, March 18, the 3rd Annual Linn County  Local Farmer and CSA Fair will be held at Prairiewoods from 2 pm to 5 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet local farmers, food growers and CSA farmers. Learn more about CSA shares, locally-produced meats and locally-grown vegetables. The event is free and all are welcome.

Linn Area Reads will also be hosting a fair on April 22 at the Cedar Rapids Public Library. Farm to Market will be held from 1 - 5 pm and include information on local farmers and food growers. We hope you will take some time to come to one or both of these events and learn more about what is available here in Linn County.
