Time for another update on what you are finding on the Fresh & Local scene.

I have the Market Share from Atlas Farm. Over the winter they offered a special price of $240 for $300 worth of goods at the Copley Market. They also offer specials to Market Share customers when they have an abundance of something. I buy what I want from the stand and they charge my share account.

It looks like I will have to add to my share fund before the season ends. But, they let you do that. You can sign up for as little as $90 for $100 in goods throughout the season.

How is your CSA going? Will you sign up again?

What's new at your market? I'm on the lookout for satellite peaches. Keown Orchards says soon.

Anyone made any farm stand visits? What are your recommendations?

Does anyone have an update on the Cape Ann Fish Share program? I'm not doing that right now only because my share partners have moved. But, I have lined up another partner and will sign on again in the fall.
