CSA Farm Shares
A CSA, or 'community supported agriculture,' is a subscription or farm membership to receive produce or other farm products on a regular basis. The customer enters into a relationship with that business to get a weekly box or prepaid card for a share of their produce (or meat, fruit, flowers, or prepared food). Several vendors offer CSA programs, so it's easy to find a program that's right for you. 2022 CSA offerings coming soon: Updated 2021 CSA Info
City Hall Workplace CSA - The Ann Arbor Farmers Market will be conducting CSA distribution at Wednesday Market for Ann Arbor City Employees, with weekly pickup June – October, 7am-3pm.

Market Infrastructure Improvement Project
The latest proposal is to add roll down sides along the existing structure. In spring 2017, a different proposal for a new market building was put out for bid and came back over budget. Consequently, staff searched for alternatives that were more affordable. In 2020, a new proposal for roll down sides was presented to provide shelter from the elements, overhead heating, and a warm space in the winter. This design keeps the existing layout without eliminating any parking, and has the potential to be expanded to the entire structure in future years. Please visit the project website, Proposed improvements focus on a new structure to expand vendor stall capacity year-round. The project is intended to serve the entire community as the market evolves and continues to provide both a critical outlet for local food and community gathering space. www.a2gov.org/marketproject for more information. This project is currently on hold due to the pandemic.
