Do you ever wonder where your food comes from, when it was picked, what is in it, or if it is safe and nutritious? Some of us in the community have partnered with local farmers to make sure we know what we put on our family’s table. By eating smarter, we also help New York’s small farmers. Our goal is to allow Flushing residents to have direct access to high-quality, organic, super-fresh food grown locally by regional farmers.
When you become a CSA member, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a local farmer. We pay our farmer in the spring and our investment brings us 26 weeks of just-picked fruits and vegetables – delivered to our neighborhood every Thursday, from May to November, at Flushing Town Hall.

Join Flushing CSA at the Annual Community Spring Festival
You are invited to the Flushing Spring Community Festival at Margaret Carman Weeping Beech Park (located at Bowne Street and 37 Avenue in Flushing, Queens) on Saturday, May 19, 11am to 4pm.
This year’s Festival theme is “This Place Matters.” Flushing CSA will be there along with many other community groups. There will be fun and educational family-friendly activities, so we hope you will come.
Please stop by the Flushing CSA table and say hello. The CSA will be demonstrating fermentation techniques with one of the organic veggies we get in our farm shares as well as provide information on organically grown produce.
While the deadline to mail in your Flushing CSA membership agreement this year is May 18, you can still stop by the Festival to sign up in person. If you know anyone who is interested, please let them know our deadline is nearing and they can sign up at the Festival. It will be the last chance to apply for the 2018 season.
Feel free to invite your family, friends, neighbors and schools to the Flushing Spring Community Festival at Margaret Carman Weeping Beech Park (located at Bowne Street and 37 Avenue in Flushing, Queens) on Saturday, May 19, 11am to 4pm.
We hope to see you there!
