YOUR BAG
Produce is delivered in an insulated Local Inside bag which includes a cooler pack to keep produce at a cool temperature. Bags will be identified with a tag personalized with your name.

When you pick up your Local Inside bag, you will need to drop off your empty, extra bag from the week prior at the delivery location for the next use. Each bag will have a personalized bag tag with your name. Our team will notify you if we do not receive your bag for your next week delivery. If you lose a bag or forget to bring it upon pick up, a $5 restocking fee will be charged for a new bag.

PRICING

Our prices are comparable to other local CSA programs and comparable to what you would spend in a local grocery store or at a farmers’ market.

  • $25 – small bag feeds 1-3 persons.
  • $30 – large bag feeds 4-5 persons.

Price includes delivery fee + taxes.

Weekly and biweekly delivery options are available so you can choose how often you pick up.

There is a $15 annual membership fee.

DO YOU OFFER HOME DELIVERIES?

Currently we only deliver to specified pick-up locations and times listed here.

If there is a specific area you would like us to consider servicing, please email localinside@hawaiiagfoundation.org or call (808) 927-9749.

CAN I PICK MY DELIVERY DAY?

Our delivery schedule is set, however, we are open to suggestions and adding alternate routes.

WHAT IF SOMETHING COMES UP AND I CANNOT PICK UP MY DELIVERY?

If your bag is already ordered and en route, we will not be able to provide a refund. We will do our best to provide you with an alternative and our drop location will be notified that you will not be able to pick up your bag.

If you need to put a hold on your service, please LOGIN to your account and put in your delivery on hold.

IS THERE ANY MINIMUM NUMBER OF DELIVERIES I HAVE TO COMMIT TO?
No. You are welcome to try a single delivery, and you can stop your service at any time.
PUT YOUR DELIVERY ON HOLD
If you need to put your order on hold for any reason, login to your account and choose the date on the calendar you do not want delivery. You will need to do this by 5pm Thursday of the week prior to your scheduled delivery. You will not be charged that week and your bag will not be delivered that week.
WHERE DOES THE PRODUCE COME FROM?
The majority of our produce comes from the HAF Ag Park at Kunia and various farms located on Oʻahu.
HOW FRESH IS YOUR PRODUCE?
Produce is harvested 24-48 hours prior to delivery.
IN THE HEAT, HOW WILL THE PRODUCE STAY FRESH?
The reusable bags you receive are insulated to keep produce cool. Two (2) ice packs will be included per bag to ensure the produce stays cool until pick up.
WHAT IF I FORGOT TO DROP BY BAG OFF WHEN I PICK UP?
There is a $5 restocking fee for a new bag that will be charged to your account.
SHOULD I GET WEEKLY OR BI-WEEKLY DELIVERIES?
Weekly deliveries work well for people who cook most of their meals at home. For smaller households and for people who eat out often, the biweekly option is usually sufficient.
HOW DO I MAKE CHANGES TO MY ORDER, ADD GROCERY ITEMS, OR HOLD A DELIVERY?
Any changes to orders, grocery additions, vacation holds or cancellations must be done by our deadline of 5 p.m. the Thursday prior to your next scheduled delivery. Simply LOGIN to your account and choose the change you need to make. Use the calendar to place your Local Inside delivery on hold or to cancel your membership.
IS FRESHNESS GUARANTEED?
We offer a freshness guarantee for at least 3 days after delivery with proper storage and handling once it has been delivered.
WHEN DO I GET MY FIRST BAG?
If you placed your order before our deadline, you will be included in the upcoming week’s delivery schedule. Your name will be listed on the drop location’s sign in sheet. You should also receive an email confirmation and notification of your delivery date ahead of time.

If you placed your order after the deadline, your order will not arrive until the following week. You can always LOGIN to your account and view when your delivery will take place.
