The Portland-Area CSA Coalition is hosting their first-ever Share Fair on Saturday, March 21 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 831 SE Salmon. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, where the community (households that are “shareholders” or “subscribers”) provides the financial support for the season’s farming by purchasing a share of the harvest or becoming a member of the farm. Once harvesting begins, shareholders typically receive weekly shares of seasonal vegetables, fruit, eggs, dairy, meat and poultry.
You can meet 33 farmers, fishers, and ranchers at Share Fair and sample their wares, watch cooking demonstrations, and participate in a cookbook swap. Kids can make and fill a seed packet and commune with chickens.
