Where are the farmer's markets around SA? Also, in Michigan, a lot of farms will deliver fresh produce to a central pick-up location for a fixed fee, and every week, you get to pick up a box of fresh fruits & vegs, whatever is in season. You roll the dice, because even if it is a dry season, you still pay. Sometimes it's really plentiful, other times slim pickins.
Anything like that in SA?
What are the predominant crops?

I'm not aware of any organized farmstand delivery services, however, you really should check out this organic grocery delivery service. I think they're based in San Marcos, but they deliver to San Antonio several days a week. Prices seem to be comparable to regular stores once you factor in the delivery.

For the best organic produce why not grow your own. If you grow the right varieties at the right time you can garden year round in San Antonio. I have had ripe home grown tomatoes in the Thanksgiving salad.

Default found it

YOu overestimate my skills, Snappy Bob! My home grown garden always goes astray...but in Detroit we only have about 4 months to get things going & harvested. (Plus, my little ones like to pick anything they see, long before ripeness!)
Found a good link for what I was looking for. It is called CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), and you can buy a share from a local farm on a per week basis. (Local Harvest / Farmers Markets / Family Farms / CSA / Organic Food) There are a few farms that have drop offs near San Antonio. I am excited to have fresh produce in the wintertime. That is one thing we don't have much of here in Michigan!!
