As an economic tool for farmers, CSAs are simple genius–you pay a lump sum up front, they get funding to buy things like seeds and tools before they have veggies to sell, you reap the rewards all season long. As a fridge stocker though, they’re overwhelming. You’re always rolling deep in kohlrabi, greens or so many squash that you wish you had a personal chef to creatively turn all that veggie goodness into something delicious and nutritious. Sign up for Sweet Deliverance and you can have it all. The service will arrange your CSA, pick it up and cook you a week’s worth of meals. You’ll get a weekly menu to choose your main dishes, side dishes, salad kits with homemade dressings and soups. You can also add on pantry staples like granola, cheese from Saxelby Cheesemongers, homemade yogurts and ice creams and baked goods. So, you get to support local farmers, eat healthy, delicious, organic meals for about $12-15 per serving, delivered to your door every week, and, you’ll never have to clean wilted kale out of the back of your refrigerator again. Sign up now and get $100 off your first delivery, just mention Brooklyn Based when you sign up.
