Brooklyn CSA's - suggestions?

Very excited to join a CSA (community supported agriculture) this summer. I am close enough to 3 pick up points...
-Cobble Hill
-Ft. Greene
-Park Slope
Any reason I should pick one over the other?

  1. I can't comment on the ones that you listed, but thought you might like to know that there is also one in Carroll Gardens, with pick-up Sat. afternoons at the transit garden. We are doing it for the 2nd yr. this yr. and are happy with it. We belonged to the Hell's Kitchen CSA when we lived in Manhattan before moving to Bklyn & prefer our current CSA.

    1. For what it's worth, Park Slope and Clinton Hill CSAs partner with the same farm, so you can't distinguish between them on that basis. I belonged for two years, and found the quality to be excellent.

        1. Any one know about the Greenwood Heights CSA?

            Maybe you're thinking of the Kensington one? Here is info for that. I was thinking of joining. It is new this year, but the farm that supplies it also supplies some other Brooklyn CSAs.


          2. I have belonged to the CSA in Williamsburg for four years now I think - we currently have Garden of Eve and I want to vouch for them. According to the Just Food website at least one of your locations uses Garden of Eve. They have a very good selection, alot of choice, e.g. half shares, egg share, fruit, flowers etc. I've been very happy with them.
