Tucson area CSA's

I'm interested in maybe joining a CSA and hoping people with some experience in them could help me out.
I think the biggest thing may be the fact that I'm single, so I just don't go thru that much food. Usually have a soup type thing for lunch and there will be a serving of veg in that, plus 2 veg side dishes with dinner, or maybe a salad with a lot of veg as my dinner.
So, i'm wondering if a CSA would make sense for me, or would I be better off just picking up stuff for the week at the farmers market.

Next I've found 3 CSA possibilities and I'm hoping people here belong to them and can give me reviews.

First is Tucson CSA
This one seems like it might be the best value, and have the most possibilities for variety. The one problem I'd have is pick ups are in Tucson and I'm 70 miles away in Rio Rico. So, it's a bit of a hike and adds to the cost.

Next would be Agua Linda Farm
Seems like a decent value, and pick up would be much closer. I've stopped at the farm on the weekend when the farm stand was open to ask questions, but kind of got the brush off from the guy who was there. Which sort of turns me off.

Last is Walking J Farm
They seem to be a bit pricey to me, but offer a variety of different options that include meat in some of the options. Pick up from them is also close to home. I'm going to try and stop by their farm stand tomorrow and check them out.

So, anyone belong to any of these or maybe can suggest another CSA you are experienced with?
