Those in east bay do you have a csa recommendation? We were doing Phat Beets for awhile but stopped a few months ago when our garden was nearly at subsistence level for a hot minute. I’ve also gotten one from Tacos El Precioso and Berkeley Bowl’s box. All had their strengths but I’m not enamored with any of them.
Also, what are your grocery getting tips/ favorites during SIP. I like the bowl’s pick up option, but wish their assortment was bigger. Good eggs is hit or miss, and $. We get a certain amount from Community Market on San Pablo Bc it has a decent selection and is relatively empty.
I’ve been a member of Urban Tilth’s CSA for years. I switched to them from Full Belly. They are on winter break right now, but they’ll pick up again on February 3rd. During COVID, I was getting weekly boxes delivered, but now that my garden is going again, I get boxes every other week.
Dirty Girl Farms has a few different types of produce boxes you can buy without a subscription, although you can purchase a subscription and get a 10% discount. They don’t deliver to your house, but they have multiple East Bay pick up locations. I’m thankful for the Kensington pick up spot at Benchmark Pizzaria.
Shao Shan Farm has a spring through summer CSA. Spots go fast, though. East Bay pick up spots are in Berkeley and Oakland.
Berkeley Bowl West contactless pickup works great. No fees, no tips. Park in the yellow zone, phone them, an employee brings it out. Limited selection, different from Instacart’s. Delivery also available (don’t know who handles that).
