Urbana's Market at the Square to Host First Annual CSA Fair

January 21, 2015 -
3:00pm to 6:00pm

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food, it bridges the gap between consumers and farmers, and can be a valuable option for anyone who would like access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and in our community, even meat, cheese, bread, and more! The First Annual Market at the Square CSA Fair is your opportunity to talk to the farmers that offer CSAs, buying clubs, and similar programs.

We hope that you’ll join us for our First Annual Market at the Square CSA Fair!
