Not too late to sign-up for a Lenten CSF share!

Fresh & Local

We’re just about three weeks into Lent, but it’s not too late to sign yourself up for a Lenten Community Supported Fisheries share. With all the beautiful seafood available at all four of our markets it’s easy to not only get through the meatless Fridays of Lent, but to enjoy them as well! $100 will get you six shares of the freshest catches at market through the end of Lent. Stop by any of our four markets this week and make an investment in one of our CCFM fishing families this year. For more information on our CSF program click here!

We’re so happy to have Carrollton Market under the Green Plate Special tent with us all month long! The market-fresh chicken salad sandwiches were delicious last week. Can’t wait to see what Chef Jason and crew whip up for us tomorrow!
