A Market Share offers our farmers market customers the opportunity to join as a member of our farm community. Just like a traditional CSA membership, members pay up front for a season’s worth of produce from Forager Farm. Members support the farm more fully in this way, by helping the farm invest in seeds, equipment, and infrastructure at the beginning of the season.
With a Market Share, members get to shop at our market stand at the BisMarket farmers market. The member purchases a Forager Farm Market Share gift card. You then have the entire farmers market season (June through early October) to use up the value on the card. As a Market Share member your items are not saved for you. In other words, all items for sale at the market are first come, first served, whether you’re a Market Share member or not.
The cost is $300. The market season is 20 weeks. That breaks down to roughly $15/week to spend on vegetables, sourdough bread and pre-baked pizza crusts and any other item(s) we may be selling. With this model you get the benefit of being able to choose what you get each week from our stand…customization that is not possible in our traditional CSA. We’re currently running a promotion of an extra $15 loaded on your card for the same price of $300. You can start the market season with $315!
All market share members are invited to our CSA member events.
This share is recommended for farmers’ market shoppers, who are already familiar with our market offerings at the BisMarket farmers market.
If the traditional CSA is more your style, please check out our CSA page.
Please note: The Market Shares are loaded on Square eGift Cards or digital gift cards. Once you’ve purchased the Market Share eGift Card, you’ll receive an email with a redemption code where you can include your phone number (if you want). When shopping at the market you can then use the redemption code, your phone number (if you included it) or your email address. Square requires us to offer 4 different prices for our eGift Cards, so you’ll notice our odd totals with differences in cents. Please just use the first option in order to load your Market Share card correctly.
