David Chang says, “every restaurant in San Francisco is serving figs on a plate with nothing on it.” By golly, you can do the same thing at home if you join Two Small Farms’ CSA! Well, maybe not the fig part since this is mostly a vegetable CSA, but you can cook delicious dishes with little fuss since you are getting the same stellar stuff supplied to rock star chefs around the Bay Area.
I’ve been a loyal member of this CSA for 5 years because the produce is awesome! Previously, I was a member of Eatwell Farm’s CSA but I quit due to quality inconsistency. I switched to Two Small Farms’ CSA because I was a big fan of Mariquita Farm’s veggies at the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market.
For about $20 a week, you get a really nice assortment of vegetables with the occasional melon or box of strawberries thrown in. I used to waste a lot of the vegetables (gasp!) because we were eating out so much (pre-kids and pre-Paleo diet) but now I can finish the box in about 3-4 days and actually have to supplement my box with trips to the farmer’s market or grocery store.
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, join this CSA and you won’t be disappointed. Seriously, you will look like Alice F-ing Waters just by roasting your veggies with olive oil and a little salt and pepper.
