We dreamed one time that we’d eat healthy… that we’d stop our habit of eating ramen noodles as our main source of sustenance…that we’d one day eat food that didn’t come from a can. That day has come because there is yummy produce rolling into Gowanus from Ithaca, NY. Fresh healthy produce will ironically be available along the banks of the ‘river stinky’ aka the Gowanus Canal at BIG NYC!(69 9th St. Brooklyn, NY) from June to November.
Check out the delicious details below:
The Full Plate Farm Collective has been working together for over 8 years to bring high quality, organic, and biodynamic vegetables to 500 households in the Ithaca area. This past winter we shared the taste of the Finger Lakes with Brooklyn. Based on positive feedback, we will offer a summer-season share. The share will include certified organic and biodynamic salad greens, melons, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, beets, squash, broccoli, cabbage, and much, much more. Members will also enjoy our weekly newsletter, filled with information about the veggies in your box, recipe ideas, and news from the farmers.
Beginning June 14th, members of the Full Plate’s Brooklyn CSA can pick up a pre-packed, 1/2 bushel box of veggies from our farms at the BIG! NYC warehouse in Gowanus. Shares will be delivered every other week (June 14, 28, July 12, 26, August 9, 23, September 6, 20, October 4, 18, November 1, 15). We have a very flexible pick up window and are building a cooler so that your vegetables will stay fresh. They can be picked-up anytime during business hours, beginning late-afternoon on Thursday through 5pm Sunday of each delivery week. Come get your share of the harvest!
Where: BIG! NYC, 69 9th St. Brooklyn, NY

WHAT IS A CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between a local farm and members of the surrounding community. The Full Plate Farm Collective CSA is a collective model, where multiple farms work together to provide produce for a common membership and the community pledges to support the farm. By making a financial commitment to a farm, people become “members” of the CSA and receive a weekly share of produce.
