We have one; I like it. Ours only comes biweekly and I find it's gone by three or four days in ... def doesn't stretch for two weeks. I'm planning to up it to weekly.
Does anyone do a meat CSA? Or buy (part of) a cow/pig/lamb?
My next frontier for local eating: chickens in the backyard. I spend so much on eggs that I figure we'll at least break even and the dudes will love tending chickens (I think). I finally talked my hubs into building me a little coop/run. So excited. He nixed the bees, though. Compromises ...

Lots of people around here have their own chickens now. I would like a goat. For milk and cheese and to mow the lawn!
My retirement job is going to be a farm in Vermont with goats and vegetables and a farm stand. When I really get fantasizing, I picture my husband the chef of the restaurant on the farm! Oh well, can always dream!
I gave up on the CSA because 1) I have picky eaters 2) I could never pick up on the right day with my work schedule 3) I got tired of getting 2 strawberries but 3lbs of kale. Maybe when residency is over. If I find one that doesn't fill my box with kale.
We use a modified CSA - it's not a real subscription to a specific farm like we used to have when we lived in farm-country (which I also loved), but rather it draws from a number of sources. Recently upped from biweekly to weekly. Ours lets you customize somewhat - you can sub stuff in online a couple of days before it arrives, which is nice. Ours is delivered to our doorstep, so no issues with having to find time to pick it up. I like that it sort of forces us to eat enough veggies - and even that it kind of plans the dinners for us. I just cook through the veggies in order of how fast things go bad. Fewer decisions = happier me, at least for now!
