Seasonal Eats CSF Program
Try our CSF - Community Supported Food program to
eat healthy, seasonal food year-round.
The Seasonal Eats CSF will provide our subscribers with local, seasonal foods, recipes, first access to seasonal favorites, and more! Subscribers will receive locally farmed produce, locally produced value-added foods, pastured/grass-fed meats, and foodie favorites. The contents of a bag will vary biweekly depending on what is seasonally available within our local network.
The Seasonal Eats CSF subscription runs from mid-January to mid-May. There are no more available shares for this season.
Subscription Fee for 9 Weeks
Each share includes:
Support Local Shop Local Roots Tote Bag*
~$50 worth of Local Foods encouraging and sharing ways our community can eat locally even in the traditional "off-season" for local produce
$48 per week
*Received in the first week to be dropped off and used again and again. If the tote bag isn't received in time for refilling, a reused and recyclable box will be used in its place.
Frequently Asked Questions
What might I receive in a share of the Seasonal Eats CSF?
Your share will include roughly $50 worth of Local Foods encouraging and sharing ways our community can eat locally even in the traditional "off-season" for local produce. An example of what may be offered in a Seasonal Eats share:
Please be aware that all of these products are dependent upon small local farmers and businesses and as such, products may vary, but the value will remain consistent.
How much is it?
The subscription fee is $432 and must be paid in full upon sign-up. It equals $48 per week.
Can I customize my bag for dietary restrictions and food allergies?
Upon sign-up, you will choose the omnivore or vegetarian option for your initial pick-up on January 17. For each pick-up after, you will be emailed 1 week out from your scheduled pick-up date with the opportunity to choose the omnivore or vegetarian option.
The Local Roots crew will do our best to accommodate dietary preferences and food allergies, but may not be able to adhere to every preference at this time. Please make your food allergies known upon your sign up to the Eating Seasonally program.
How do I subscribe?
You can pay the full subscription fee online or there is an automatic bi-weekly payment option in-store. For the in-store option, you would come to the market to sign-up, pay for your first week, and give us your information to continue automatic bi-weekly payments. For those unable to visit us in-store due to COVID-19 restrictions, you can subscribe for bi-weekly payments over the phone, call (330) 263-5336.
What day do I pick up my share?
The pick-up days are all on Sundays and listed above.
What if I can't pick up my share?
Local Roots encourages you or a proxy to pick up your share on the Sunday it is released at our market in Wooster, Ohio during our open hours of 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. We also offer curbside pick-up for those who wish to avoid entering the market. Local Roots may be able to offer a delivery option within Wooster City limits on a case by case basis with a good reason for delivery.
Can I bring my bag in to be reused?
Every Seasonal Eats CSF sign up receives a 'Support Local Shop Local Roots' Reusable Tote Bag - this bag will be ready for your pick-up at Local Roots - full of local foods, Sunday, January 17th. Bring your bag back to us any time before our next pick up to have your bag refilled for the next pick-up. Don't want to bring your bag back to the store? No worries - Local Roots will substitute a recycled and recyclable box for your share.
Can I still join after the first bag has gone out?
Sign-ups can continue once the program has started as long as there is subscription space. Program sign-ups will be prorated for the weeks remaining if sign-up happens once the program has already started.
What if it isn't a good fit for me?
If you don't want to continue with the subscription, we can issue you a refund. The refund will be the total subscription fee minus the weeks you have already received and a 20% administrative fee. To exit from the CSF, you have to do so before March 15 and we will require a 7-day notice before the next pick-up.
