Due to Covid the Freedom Farmers Market will not open for the season instead we are operating the CSA program.
On 2nd Saturdays Feb 13 - May 8, 8:30 am - 2:00 pm pre-registered subscribers will pick-up their CSA bags of healthy produce grown by socially disadvantaged farmers in Oakland.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to assist with packing the CSA bags, attendants, graphic artist, social media influencers and drivers to deliver contactless produce to subscribers at drop off locations.
I would love for you to be apart of the growing CSA Team.
We enforce safe distance, wearing mask, gloves and aprons while handling the produce. Subscribers are informed to wear a mask when picking up their CSA bag of produce.
