    I highly recommend Washington’s Green Grocer. The aggregate produce (and other things) and offer a very diverse selection throughout the year. You can choose a mixed box, an all organic box, or an all local box. They deliver it to your front door, too, which is a huge perk. They have a fantastic website with all the info, which I highly recommend if you’re interested. I’ve been using them for many years and I have nothing but good things to say.

    • I’m curious, what is the reasoning behind joining a CSA if the produce is non-local? Is it better than at the grocery store, or is it about the delivery?

      Just wondering about all these different services out there!

    I’m a huge fan of Star Hollow Farm. You pay the fee and then get to choose the CSA box or pick what you want from the online store. The pickup is at 18th and Columbia on every other Saturday in the winter time.

    • yup, star hollow is the way to go. i’ve been a member for a few years now and never regretted it.
      there is a wait list to get in sometimes but ask for Randy between 9-noonish saturday and he can answer any questions and get you set up. you can also check out http://starhollowfarm.com/

        They expand the CSA for the winter when they close the farm stand, they send an email out. That’s what I do, only CSA in the winter. Randy is super friendly and will answer any questions on Saturday. He also remembers everyone!

    • As always, I agree that Star Hollow Farm is the bomb.

    • Another vote for Star Hollow. They’re awesome.

  • Smucker Farms on 14th St has a fantastic “Winter” CSA. We’ve done their summer CSA for 2 rounds and the original winter offering last year and I’ll definitely be doing it again. You get a huge variety of greens, herbs, potatoes and other root veggies, onions, heirloom garlic and other great things. But that’s not it! Most weeks come with cheese, eggs or butter (the second best butter after Plugra) to make sure we’re getting our value. The eggs are so fresh you can hear the hens’ lamaze.

    Seriously, check it out. It gives you something to live for each week!

  • I’m not the OP, but thanks for the recommendation–I’ll check Star Hollow out. I know lots of people who enjoy the surprise and creative challenge of making meals out of whatever they happen to get in their CSA boxes…but I’m a picky eater AND a lazy cook, so it’d be great to have the option to decide what I want from the store! 🙂

  • I have been a subscriber with Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative for many years and I participate in the fall share every year. LFFC has a new winter share as well. They will be taking apps for fall in the next few weeks. http://www.lancasterfarmfresh.com/csa/default

  • From the Farmer. They deliver to your door. http://fromthefarmerdc.com/

  • I’ve been using Norman’s Farm Market for three years now and I love it. Unlike typical CSAs, this one is a collection of farms, so when you go to pick it up it’s more market style and you can choose what you want. The late season starts on September 22nd and goes until November 15th. Check out: http://normansfarmmarket.com/, and http://instagram.com/normansfm. Only annoying part is that pick ups are only in Maryland. I live in upper NW, so picking up from the Westland Middle School location is not so annoying.

  • Kuhn orchards from 14th and u market does a nice winter CSA. Very local, so lots of potatoes, apples, onions, shallots, awesome hydroponic lettuce, cider, winter squash.

  • We loved Karl’s farm for fall/winter. They do home delivery depending on your address. http://karls-farm.com/CSA/
