An example of a weekly CSA share

The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model allows for consumers to purchase shares in the farm for a season in return for a specific amount of produce/product each week. Some farms have pick-up locations while others will deliver and most farms offer different size shares.  It is the best way to get the freshest, seasonal, local and organic veggies each week.  These veggies will provide you the highest nutritional content, as well as supporting your local economy and helping your wallet, as most are an excellent deal for the amount and quality of fruits and vegetables received.

Here is a list of CSA’s available around the Charleston area:

The Sprout Cafe's Kale Chips

Sometimes you just need a chip. Right? The Sprout Café’s Kale Chips can satisfy your craving for a delicious crunchy snack, while actually being good for you!

The Sprout Café’s Kale Chips begin with organic kale sourced locally from Joseph Fields Farm. This is important because we like to support local businesses, organic farmers and because when you eat locally sourced produce, you can reduce seasonal allergy symptoms.

We then add our specially formulated seasonings to the kale and then dehydrate it, which removes the water and makes it crunchy, all the while preserving the enzymes and, vitamins and minerals.

Strawberries are in season now, get them while you can, and as many as you can!

Strawberries are one of the leading fruits for antioxidants.  Given their unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, it’s not surprising to see strong research support for strawberry health benefits in three major areas: (1) cardiovascular support and prevention of cardiovascular diseases (2) improved regulation of blood sugar, with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, and (3) prevention of certain cancer types including breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer.

Strawberries provide an outstanding variety of phytonutrients, including anthocyanins (especially cyanindins and pelargonidins); flavonols (especially procyanidins, catechins, gallocatechins, epicatechins, epigallocatechins, kaempferol and quercetin); hydroxybenzoic acids (especially ellagic acid); hydroxycinnamic acids (including cinnamic, coumaric, caffeic, and ferulic acid); and stilbenes (including resveratrol). Strawberries are an excellent source of antioxidant-promoting vitamin C and manganese. They are also a very good source of dietary fiber, iodine, and folate. Plus, strawberries are a good source of copper, potassium, biotin, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin B6, and omega-3 fatty acids.

At The Sprout, we offer MANY delicious smoothies featuring strawberries for your body AND tastebuds to enjoy!
