With November quickly approaching, Local Roots NYC is offering a Pop Up Thanksgiving CSA, just in time for New Yorkers to prepare for the national holiday. Local Roots connects New York City with their farms through a CSA-based (Community Supported Agriculture) model of giving members access to fresh produce grown by regional farmers.
Local Roots NYC Presents its 2nd Pop Up CSA
Through the Pop Up Thanksgiving CSA, local farms will be able to deliver fresh food to Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. Pick-up is also available at three locations in Brooklyn and one location in Manhattan’s East Village. In preparation for your big Turkey Day dinner, you will be able to pick from a wide selection of whole turkeys, fresh vegetables, homemade bread, desserts and more. Local Roots NYC is also offering some of its most delicious recipes while CSA participants will even receive a specially made tote bag.
“The Pop Up Thanksgiving CSA is very special to us as it opens up the Local Roots CSA community to all of New York City and beyond our usual neighborhood pick up sites,” said Local Roots NYC founding director Wen-Jay Ying. “Thanksgiving is a time where we share a delicious meal with family and friends, and I feel truly thankful that Local Roots and our CSA farmers are able to be a part of that experience.”
The Pop Up’s vegetables are naturally grown on Rogowski Farm of Pine Island, NY.
Brooklyn pick-up locations are 61 Local in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain in Carroll Gardens, and Diamond Bar in Greenpoint. For Manhattan, pick-ups can be done at Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village. Local Roots NYC is accepting orders up until Friday, October 26 via an online form. Payment is accepted online via Google Wallet or by checks written and sent out to: Local Roots NYC, 101 Warren Street, #3e, Brooklyn, NY, 11201
