What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA allows city residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer.
Led by founder and entrepreneur Steve Hughes, OTIS Fresh Farm and OTIS Fresh Market are South Side Chicago-based (Bronzeville and Englewood) social impact projects focused on providing access to healthy food for underserved communities. When you support either OTIS farm or market, you are supporting a larger scope of efforts.
