MSP too late for CSA's?

I was wondering if I still have time to join a CSA for this coming summer. If so, are there any recommendations for particular farms? I live in the north metro area, but can pick up in Mpls during the week. Thanks.

    You'll have to call around to see who's still got shares left. I think many of them are sold out. There's a searchable website that has CSA listings and contact info from all over the country. Good luck!

      Not sure how up to date this list is, but it should get you started:

        i think you are probably too late to get a good choice of local CSAs, sorry!

        *but* you can call around to farms with pickups in your area and try to get a late share somewhere convenient. it's also not too early to get on the waitlists for csas for *next* summer-- the farmers i talk to who do csas say they are blowing up-- so the earlier you express interest, the more they can plan to accommodate folks for next year.
