Community Supported Agriculture Heads to Echo Park
Echo Park will be the newest home for community supported agriculture (CSA), in which customers pay a subscription fee for weekly (or every other week) pick-up of locally grown fruits and vegetables. California CSA, which serves several neighborhoods, including locations in North Hollywood, downtown, Culver City and Santa Monica, will begin an Echo Park location at Mooi Restaurant on Tuesday afternoons starting August 17th.
One week costs $25 and that, in our experience, has always kept us busy cooking and creating dishes throughout the week (bring your own resuable bags to pick-up your produce). We checked the North Hollywood location out earlier this year and were impressed with the results.
