Harvest’s CSA (community supported agriculture) bag program is an awesome thing to try right now if you haven’t already. These $35 bags are sized for two and contain veggies, seasonal foods, dried organic fruit, grains, and heirloom legumes, to name a few. Harvest’s sister spot, Burdock & Co, also offers CSA bags now, along with fresh house-made provisions like broths, yogurt, granola, and wine. All of these offerings must be pre-ordered before a designated pick-up time.
