Wednesday Pick Ups
 

When: Pick up your Pike Box every Wednesday from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Where: The Pike Box Team will be set up in a tent at 1531 Western Ave, Seattle. WA 98101 between Madame Lazonga Tattoo and the entrance to the Pike Place Market parking garage. Look for a Market branded tent and a sign announcing "CSA pick up here!"

Western Avenue is filled with a combination of 2 hour and 30 minute load zones. If you wish to enter the parking garage, there is a 15 minute grace period for free exit. Please remember to not block the entrance or exit of the parking garage. 

How it Works: Please approach the tent. The Pike Box Team will be waiting with your box. If you are picking up for a friend, tell the team your friend's last name.

You will receive your fresh produce, flower or egg shares along with the Fresh Sheet, which contains recipes. We ask that you respect social distancing and stand 6 feet from others in line. 

Safety Considerations: The Pike Box Team will be wearing masks during pick up, following appropriate COVID-19 disinfection protocol and will have set up social distancing chalk marks on the sidewalk. We ask that CSA members wear a mask during pick up and respect social distancing. 

Please let us know if you have any questions about the pick up process. Reach out at PikeBox@PikePlaceMarket.org or call (206) 351-3919.

About Pike Box CSA

"CSA" stands for "Community Supported Agriculture," a partnership between farmers and consumers. Pike Box is an opportunity for community members to invest in a "share" of local farms by signing up for a season’s worth of fresh produce that is sourced from our Pike Place Market farmers.

The produce is packed by Pike Place Market staff and dedicated volunteers each week and waiting for pick up right here at Pike Place Market.

The Pike Box CSA program supports local farmers in growing their businesses by opening additional sales channels, connecting them with new customers, and allowing them to experiment with new crops and varieties.

The Pike Box program is operated by Pike Place Market PDA. Supported by the Pike Place Market Foundation and WSDA's Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.
