The East Lake Farmers Market offers our Market Baskets—a CSA-type market basket subscription for those interested in a weekly supply of fresh produce throughout the market season. Two size options are available.  Subscribers pick up their boxes at the market or at designated pick-up sites around town. You can sign up for the whole season or purchase by the week.

Proceeds from East Lake Market Baskets support our Senior Market Basket Program which delivers fresh produce to our senior neighbors in need. Please consider an additional donation to sponsor an East Lake senior citizen.

Whole Share: $400 for the season or $25 per week

Half Share: $250 for the season or $15 per week

Pay for the season in advance, by the week, or in three installments: June, July, and August.


Come see us at the Market to sign up. Or email us at [email protected].
