How It Works

The Nitty Gritty

We're the only Farm Share in NYC that offers 4 seasons of fresh, local produce. Our seasons are 3 month durations except for Spring, which is 2 months long.

You can order throughout the season: prices listed are prorated so you won't be paying for weeks you've missed. Hooray!

Traveling? Don't worryyou can put your order on hold here and get the weeks you miss refunded!

More Than Just Food

When you become a Local Roots member, you get a lot more than food. You join a community of fellow food-loving New Yorkers, help fight climate change by reducing your carbon footprint, and learn what it means to eat local.


A Note About Eating Farm-Fresh Food

We support small, sustainable, certified organic/practicing organic farms whose food we believe is worth bringing to as many people as possible. This food is better for you and better for the environment. However, the practices that yield top-quality crops also leave the crops more vulnerable to nature's variables: pests might eat the plants because the plants aren't sprayed with pesticides. The temperature might spike, causing a leafy green to bolt or rot unexpectedly. Because the produce is harvested so soon before you receive it, there will be times when last-minute changes occur to the shares we have announced. We will update the share list on our website, but we do not always have the ability to send a separate notification. We hope that you will understand that this is part of Community Supported Agriculture, and we thank you for your flexibility.

We're not a farmers market or a supermarket, so what does a Local Roots market look and feel like?
