Finding locally grown food is easier than ever with LocalHarvest . Type in your city or ZIP code and the national directory will locate nearby CSAs (community-supported-agriculture programs) that provide regular boxes of farm-fresh produce. Looking for something other than kale and kohlrabi? Many of LocalHarvest’s featured CSAs offer goods that go beyond the garden plot — from meat, cheese, and honey to bread, wool, and wine. In addition to connecting users with more than 5,000 CSAs, the site lists more than 30,000 farms, farmers’ markets, orchards, u-pick berry patches, co-ops, and restaurants that feature local foods.
