Village Fishmonger CSF (Community Supported Fishery) is offering deliciously fresh, local seafood shares to the members of Farm Spot for the 2014 Summer season!

Our fish and shellfish are sourced directly from local fishermen and shellfish harvesters, which we then process and package for you in our kitchen in Brooklyn.  You’ll be able to sign-up to pick-up fresh, local seafood on a weekly and bi-weekly basis during the season on the same days and times that you pick up your vegetable share.

We will be offering a 1 lb or 2 lb size share of mostly fin-fish, plus add-on shares of clams, oysters, and scallops as well as a la carte items that can be ordered on a week to week basis.  Low-mercury, allergy-sensitive, and Kosher options are available too. You can sign up any time, and you’ll be prorated for deliveries until the end of the season. Note that only those households that sign up for the season can order a la carte items.

To sign up, click here and select Farm Spot CSA as your pick-up location.

New members should click “Sign Up for Shares.”
Returning Members should click “Manage My Account”

To celebrate our 8th season bringing sustainable, local, organic produce to Jackson Heights we are planning a picnic during distribution!

You bring your food and a blanket and we’ll supply the beverages and cups. Jonny Meyers will be playing music for us and Bittersweet NYC will be selling incredible baked goods to finish off your picnic!

Don’t forget, distribution is at St. Mark’s Church (33-50 82nd Street) from 5:30-8:15.

A few reminders:
Bags – If possible, bring reusable bags to bring home your share. Also, if you have extra grocery bags to add to our collection for people who forget to bring theirs, we love to re-use bags!!!

Grass – Important! We are allowed to use the lawn again this year. Hooray!! But only for foot traffic. Please keep wheels (including strollers + bikes), boxes, tables or chairs off the lawn so we can continue to use it…thanks!

Volunteer Hours – Sign up for your volunteer hours here!!

Dairy – If you ordered from Milk Not Jails, don’t forget to put up your order! 
Milk Not Jails is planning to have a table this week to answer questions and encourage last-minute sign-ups! Click here if you want to 
get a dairy share.

Fruit – The fruit shares will not start until later in the season when fruit is fully ripe and delicious. So “fruit only” people please come to the picnic, but your shares will not be in for several weeks. We’ll let you know when we hear that the farm is sending fruit to distribution.

Compost is Open!
Bring your veggie scraps! Here are compost tips.

Bittersweet NYC Menu – here is what we have to look forward to!!!
Sweet & Salty Butter Crunch Cookies
Coconut Chocolate Chip Macaroons
