Approximately 20 CSA farms will have information, smiles and 2018 sign-up information. Meet your local farmers, ask about their operations, find pick-up locations, learn about on-farm events, and choose your share. Veggies, Meat, Eggs and more! All the action is on the Main Floor of Monona Terrace (Level Four).

Sign-up at the Open House for your CSA share! Farmers and local food producers will be sampling and selling their products (see sponsors below).

Learn how to make the most of your CSA experience with “Ask an Expert” advice at tables located throughout the event. Don’t forget to visit the children’s craft area.
