About this blog

This is my blog on the arts scene of Carrboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding Triangle communities. I'll focus on visual arts and the 2ndFriday Artwalk and other visual art events but that doesn't mean I won't chat about music, literary events, film or anything else in the local creative world. Please email with ideas, links, comments or brickbats. [I have comment moderation on so if you don't see your comment right away that means that I haven't had a chance to approve it yet. Sorry, but the spammers.....]

Food can be art, right?

Core Sound Seafood is a CSF (community supported fishery) along the lines of a CSA (community supported agriculture) system.  They are in the signup period for the 2011 Fall shares.  There will be 10 pickup days starting Thursday, September 2011.

CSF works with a team of fishermen and women who fish in the Core Sound of North Carolina.  You can buy full and half shares with weekly or bi-weekly deliveries.  They have drop off locations in Raleigh, Durham and Carrboro.  The Carrboro pick-up time is from 4:30-6:30 pm at Carrboro Shopping Plaza off of Hwy 54.  Here's their description of what they do. 
Core Sound Seafood was started as a way to connect the fishermen of Down East Carteret County, North Carolina to a viable, local market.  Most of the fishermen that make up this coastal community have been fishing all their lives – often they can trace their fishing heritage back four or five generations. Sadly, these fishermen are increasingly leaving their life on the water as global markets, community economic loss, rising fuel prices and decreasing buying prices threaten their livelihood.  Our goal is to provide a market to these fishermen and their families by offering locally caught, fresh seafood to the Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Raleigh community through weekly CSF (community supported fishery) shares. We also utilize locally owned, Down East businesses to help provide items like hand-picked, fresh crab meat to shares. 
Eddie, Alison and Anna are great folks and doing a wonderful job bringing delicious and sustainably harvested seafood to us while supporting the fishing industry by cutting out the middlemen.  Highly recommended!
