Toward a Deeper Understanding of “Eating Locally”
Since we created our groundbreaking local purchasing program in 1999, the farm-to-table movement has gone mainstream. Bon Appétit has sought to go beyond just purchasing locally to create a program that can have broader impacts that support sustainability, social justice, and community resiliency.

Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
Bon Appetit at Disney has partnered with Nic Romano of Villa Romano Green Farms to bring you something even more flexible this season. This year’s you can choose what is included in your weekly produce box. You may choose all vegetables, all fruits, a juicing box, or let farmer Nic choose for you based on what the pick of the week is. You may even choose artisan items like honey or olive oil.
Circle 7 Café and The Patio will be closed until further notice.
