Why We Love It: Agrotopia is a cotton-and-wheat farm turned development community with the distinct mission of preserving urban agriculture. The mini city is comprised of 450 houses, commercial spaces and 16 acres of agriculture. What you won’t find are walls, overly wide streets, garage doors or anything else that might isolate people and hinder sharing. Is this Utopia? See for yourself. The restaurant, coffeehouse, farm-to-table restaurant and farmer’s market are all open to the public.
The Farmstand & Food Trucks market is held on Wednesdays from 4pm to 8pm.
About Agritopia's CSA: All of the Certified Organic products in this CSA have been grown on-site at the 15-acre farm at the center of Agritopia, a neighborhood that The New York Times recently called an "agrihood," slang for a residential area planned around a working farm. An eight-week membership to the CSA costs $200, and boxes of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers can be picked up at the Agritopia Farmers' Market (Wednesdays and Saturdays), or at the Gilbert Farmers' Market (Saturdays only).
