I’m hoping that you can help me spread the word about a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program coming to the Mercado. This program can provide you with weekly bundles of fresh, locally grown produce at a reasonable price. This is a great way to be green, eat healthy, and support local farming.

Agua Linda Farm, located about 45 minutes away in Amado, AZ, is willing to set up a CSA pick-up site at the Mercado San Agustín as early as March! That means that you will be able to pick up your share of farm-fresh vegetables each week at the Mercado. First, however, we need to find more people in the neighborhood that would like to participate in this program. If you are interested, or you know someone who is, please visit the site: and go to the CSA page. Where it asks you to specify the pick-up location, type “Mercado San Agustín”.
