Community Supported Agriculture -- What Makes a Good CSA?

Are you buying a CSA share this year? Have you tried more than one in the past? Sign-up time is coming up for the 2008 season, and some farms offer discounts to customers who commit and pay early.

Many growers are using the internet to fine-tune their offerings, allowing customers to choose from among an online selection for their weekly boxes. Some feature aerial farm photos, so you can see if those chickens really are ranging free.

I'm wondering what are your criteria for a good CSA and whether you have a local favorite. (Some readers are reporting problems with this blog's comment section. I hope I've got it fixed but would appreciate feedback. You could also try the tag board at right.)
