Summer CSA Pick Up Days and Locations
The “Choice” CSA lets you choose when and where to pick up.
- In Freeport at the Farm – Wednesday and Friday from 3:00 to 6:30 pm, or Saturday from 9:00 am to noon.
- In Portland at Drummond Woodsum (at the corner of Marginal Way and Preble St.) Wednesday from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm, in the forth floor of the parking garage near the elevator entrance.
You can go to any pick up time or location you want. Where and when you pick up can vary from week to week. The first couple of weeks we want you to go to the location you signed up for so we can get a baseline. After that, there is no need to let us know where or when you want to pick up.
A note about the Portland pick up. As reluctant as we Mainers generally are to drive into parking garages, the pickup is on 4th level in a lightly used area of the garage. There is a roof over head, and with the shade, the cool concrete, and the light sea breeze at that elevation, it really is a nice place to hang out on a hot summer afternoon, and a beautiful view of Portland. And these conditions help keep the vegetables fresher too.
If you can’t get there – you can always make up any pickup day you miss. The next time you come just take extra, up to half of your share at a time. So if you miss the last week of June because you were away on business, take 1 1/2 times your share for the first 2 weeks of July and you come out even.
