What is the Pike Box CSA Program?

The Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority created the Pike Box CSA program in 2013 with the goals of helping local farmers grow their business, connecting Seattle workers and residents to local food sources, and providing fresh produce to anyone who needs it.

The Pike Box CSA program is a farm-to-customer program run by the Pike Place Market Farm Team. Market staff source fresh produce, eggs, honey, flowers, and more from farmers across Washington. Then pack it all up for weekly pick-ups at Pike Place Market.

 

What is a Community Supported Agriculture program?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between farmers and members guaranteeing sales during uncertain times. In 2021, we sourced produce and artisanal foods from over 30 Washington farmers.

Pike Box CSA members have the opportunity to support farmers by signing up for a season’s worth of fresh produce. This helps farmers, especially small family farmers, plan their crops for the year.

 

How does my Pike Box membership support Washington Farmers?

Your Pike Box membership helps support the development of farmers by opening them up to additional sales channels, connecting them with new customers, and allowing them to experiment with new crops and varieties. (Some of which will end up in members’ boxes and kitchens.)

 

 

How does the Pike Box Program work?

  1. Sign up for a membership during the open window period.
  2. Then our Farm Team works with our Washington Farmers and packs your box with their amazing produce!
  3. Pick up your Pike Box/Add On/Seasonal Box during the pick up time from Pike Place Market.
  4. Enjoy all your farm fresh goodies at home. Each Box comes with a weekly What’s Fresh sheet that includes – list of what is in your box, recipes to help you cook yummy dishes, a section to meet the farmer, preparation and storage information.

Pick Up Instructions

Current Season: Holiday Pike Box

When: Pick up your Holiday Pike Box on Thursday, December 16th from 4 – 8 p.m.

Where: The Pike Box Team will be set up at the Holiday Night Market on the Marketfront Pavilion at 1501 Western Avenue. The pavilion is the covered, open-air space just outside of the crafts market. 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.

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 order.  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. Complete the form below.
