As we enter the last month of the year, we want to take a moment to THANK YOU for all your support of Tucson CSA and local producers, local community. We are so humbled by and grateful for our resilient farmers, our courageous members (you!), and together our caring (and delicious) community we share.
We also want to give a few important updates/reminders that may help your holiday meal and gift planning:
- We have holiday pop up markets for Dec. 5th & 6th as well as Dec. 12th & 13th – support local by buying unique gifts from artists and friends of Tucson CSA
- We will be CLOSED for 2 weeks as usual for the holidays – NO PICK-UPS last week in December nor first week in January (Closed Dec. 23 – January 6th)
- Last pick ups for 2023: December 20 & 21
- First pick ups for 2024: January 9 & 10
NEW Winter hours schedule for January and February – we will be closing at 6:30pm instead of 7pm. Please plan on arriving to pick up your share before or by 6:30pm at the latest. We will not start these winter hours until January 2024.
Moving forward those winter hours will apply to December, January, and February as it gets quite dark and cold there in the courtyard with only a small handful of members picking up in that last half hour. Thanks for understanding.
Winter hours: 4pm-6:30pm
Over the past two years Tucson CSA has transitioned from 2 to over 6 regular farmers to help bring you the freshest, local and seasonal produce possible. We’ve continued to support Tucson Food Share and the Family Pantry at Imago Dei Middle School, both with excess produce for those times when you forget to pick up and through specific funding we have sought to provide more support to our small local farmers. We look forward to doing more of that with support from the Purchase Local AZ through Pinnacle Prevention in 2024.
None of what we do would be possible without YOU all as members and without our many volunteers who help Daniela and Sara (pictured above in our Halloween glory) make it all work. This fall has been especially challenging as Daniela has struggled with lower back issues, and will be getting surgery this Friday for a ruptured disc, in fact. Thanks for your patience and understanding as our volunteers continue to step up to help you get the produce and local items that hopefully bring you joy this holiday season, and all year long.
