City Commons is a cooperative urban CSA, the produce you receive is all grown in Detroit at five market gardens located throughout the city. The food you receive each week has been grown using sustainable methods, meaning that we do not use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

Produce for City Commons CSA is grown by many farmers: Chris McGrane grows food on the east side of Detroit. Elizabeth Phillips found her passion for farming along a varied path and grows food in East Detroit. Alice Bagley has been farming for eight years and runs Fields of Plenty where she moves her plants and produce all over Detroit by bicycle. Emily has traveled the world in search of good eats, only to find that she can grow the freshest food right in her own neighborhood at Singing Tree Garden, uptown Detroit. Noah Link and Alex Bryan grow vegetables, fruit, poultry, fish, honeybees and more at Food Field near historic Boston-Edison.
