Report: Houston Local Food Price Comparison - May 2013


Photo by Jared Maidenberg
A customer shared this comparison shopping report for local food delivered into Houston.  It is interesting to see how the closer you are to working with your farmers directly, the more you are going to save.  It's fresher, it's better priced and 100% of your dollar goes directly to the farmers.

BIG THANKS to our CSA Members who make it possible by committing to your local food and for sharing the risks with your farming community!  You make it all happen!

(Prices were gathered from the website of each business on May 1, 2013.)

Hi, we are a family in Austin. Does your CSA serve Austin or alternately can you name any here who are quite similar to yourselves?

Try Green Gate Farm. They serve Austin.
