CSA Share Debit Cards

It's a CSA, but different!

Thank you for your interest in the Small World Food Custom CSA! For over a decade, Small World Food has established partnerships with NY farmers and food producers. With those connections, we produce a wonderful variety of baked goods and ferments and have used those delicious products to build relationships with you, our lovely and loyal customers. We are proud to be your link to local NYS farms and that is at the heart of our new CSA program.

This unique CSA offers the widest variety of local, organically produced food to be offered in Rochester. We combine that variety with flexibility that is simply unmatched. No more worries about missing a week because you’re on vacation. No more worries about whether you’re actually going to eat everything in your CSA box. With our CSA Share Debit Card, you’ll get exactly what you want, exactly when you want it, and will be able to choose from multiple local farmers to support every week.

How it works:

Sign Up

We offer multiple membership levels to suit your individual needs and budget. Members can join for as little as $11.54/week and receive a 5% bonus or enjoy up to a 10% bonus with larger packages.

Get Your Share Debit Card

Each member receives a Share debit card upon sign up. Summer share debit cards can be used for everything we sell (listed below) between June 1st and November 30th. Winter share debit cards can be used between December 1st and May 31st.

Buy What You Want, When You Want, & Save!

Members can choose to use as much or as little as they need on a weekly basis until the Share debit card expires. Share cards can be used at our market location, our online store, our retail space, or by appointment at several other locations.

Some examples of items you can choose from:

From Our Vegetable Producers

Seasonal

We partner with over a dozen local farms throughout the year to offer a wide variety of organically grown NYS crops. Because our CSA Share Debit Card runs for the entire growing season, you can use your membership to support many different farms throughout the year, instead of committing to just one farm.  You can expect to see everything from Spring salad mixes to Winter squash and everything in between. During Winter, we bring you a variety of storage crops from our local farmers, helping them sustain themselves through the slower season and helping you sustain your family with healthy carrots, beets, potatoes, and more. Our CSA Share Debit Card allows you to try a little of something new (just ask for recipes) or stock up on seasonal items like tomatoes and green beans for canning. You can even plan ahead and get a discount on your entire Thanksgiving feast.
