is Back for 2013!

It’s finally that time again! The Local Choice Food Box is back for the 2013 season, and we’re better than ever! Sign up now to reserve your spot and grab our 5% early registration discount!

Growing Washington and our network of farm partners are eager to offer our customers in King, Snohomish, Whatcom, and Skagit Counties the same great CSA program our members have come to expect, along with some awesome new additions.  We are excited to give our members more choices, more box options, more pick-up locations, a new web-store and more great food from our growing family of local farms.

While some things have changed this season, the foundation of our CSA program is the same: our Local Choice members enjoy the ability to choose every single item that goes into their boxes from a great variety of Washington-based farms, and every dollar goes straight to local growers. And our Farmer Choice members will still continue to receive the best, freshest seasonal veggies that we bring home to our own families.

So head on over now and get signed up!  If you have any questions, please visit us online, or contact any of our staff at any time. To learn more about where your Food Box dollars are going, please visit the Growing Washington website.

As always, we look forward to growing your food!
