Local Farm Delivery

s

I've been scouring the internet (maybe all in the wrong places) for something between a CSA, a farmers market, and a Fresh Direct.... I want some kind of service that will facilitate ordering and delivery from various local farms instead of just one and will deliver to my door. Anyone have any good examples or places I can find something like this in the NYC area?

      I got in touch with Basis Foods based on this NY Mag issue, but they have limited delivery targets at present. Perhaps you live close enough to one of the drop points to be convenient, or can persuade several neighbours to make it worth their while to come to your bldg, but be prepared to be disappointed - FreshDirect coverage it ain't, despite the FD dis in the mag.

      Anyway you can contact them via goodfood@basisfoods.com to get more info. They responded quickly - just no good for me right now.
