Local Food Hub’s Gift Guide

December 18, 2019

It’s that time of year! If you’re getting anxious about the presents you have yet to buy, have no fear. We’ve compiled a list of ideas to help you with gifts for the foodies in your life.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares

Give the locavore in your life a gift that gives all summer long. With CSA shares, participants get weekly bags of delicious produce, fresh from the farm. It’s easy to find one that fits your schedule and needs:

Bellair Farm
Phantom Hill Farm
Planet Earth Diversified
Radical Roots
Malcolm’s Market Garden


Delicious, locally-made products also make perfect stocking stuffers or party gifts:
