Sunday fair highlights farm share program

BRUNSWICK — As part of a weekend of “ Meet Your Farmers and Fishermen” fairs to promote Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), the Brunswick CSA Fair will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 27 Pleasant St.

In the “community supported” model of local foods purchasing, a customer commits to buying a share of the coming harvest before the season begins. By doing so, he or she provides farmers or fishermen with seed money at the start of the growing season.

People can sign up for a CSA share at Sunday’s fair.

Admission to the fair is free. For more information, go to www.mofga.org or call 725- 6414.
