CSA with pick-up in Eastie?

After scanning both the chowhound postings on CSAs and other resources (e.g. www.localharvest.org, a great site), it seems that there's no CSA that currently offers a pick-up location in East Boston. But since chowhounders often know about things that I don't, I was wondering if anyone knew of any good options for a new Eastie resident looking for a CSA option without having to travel too far? Last year when we lived in Allston, we subscribed to Stillman's -- great produce, friendly people! -- but having moved eastward, I'd like to find a place closer to home. Any advice would be appreciated!
I don't know of any. We do have easy access to farmers market on the blue line at government center (mondays and wednesdays in season) and a smaller farmers market at constitution beach on saturdays. Also on Bennington St in central square near the dollar store there is a gentleman who sells plants and brings produce from his farm in Lincoln during the warmer months besides the usual produce he has some unusual things including tiny eggplants (he says they are brazilian) , hot peppers, different kinds of greens as well as fresh shell beans etc. There is also a farmers market in chelsea.
