EAT LOCAL ALL WINTER

The Fresh Fork Market Winter Farm Share provides our members with local, sustainably-grown foods all winter long. Similar to our Summer Share, the Winter Bags arrive in refrigerated trucks all over town and are filled with meats, vegetables, ciders, fruits and much more.

TIMING

The Winter Farm Share is 15 weeks long, and runs from November through the first week of May. Pick ups are every week for the first three weeks, and then every other week. The first “off-week” is the week of Thanksgiving. There is a complete schedule of all your stop’s pick up dates on each page, click here to find yours.

BAG CONTENTS

There is just one share size only in Winter, and either Omnivore or Vegetarian. This bag is larger than our Summer Small Share Bag, and a typical week might look like this: 1 Pork Shoulder Roast, 1 pint BBQ Sauce, 1 pint Frozen Sweet Corn, 1 pint Frozen Blackberries, 1 pint Frozen Strawberries, 1 Candy Onion, 1 quarter peck Gala Apples, 1 doz. Eggs, 3# Kennebec Potatoes, 1 pint Fresh Tomato Salsa, 1 bag Corn Chips Every week we post a picture of the shares– check them all out here.

PRICING

The cost of the full season is $675 if you pay upfront. This works out to about $45/bag, but with every other week delivery, it’s an average cost of $22.50 per week. In the winter, we only have two payment options: Full Upfront or Payment Plan, which splits the cost into two installments: $357.50 due in October, and $357.50 in January. We also have a Full-Access plan: for an additional $25/share week ($375 total), you’ll receive $30/ share week of credit to purchasing extras. The entire value ($450 in credits) is made available in your account the first week of Winter and you can use it at any point throughout the season. All credits expire at the end of the share. There is a one-time $25 member fee due for new members, and all previous subscriptions must be paid in full ($0.00 balance) in order to sign up. Check out our Pricing Page for more information.

JOIN ANYTIME – PRO-RATED SHARES

If you join the program after the season has begun, you’ll only pay for the weeks you’re a member. For example, if you start week 7 in January, your upfront cost will only be $405 (9 share weeks x $45 per week.)

PICK UP LOCATIONS

We have more than a dozen Winter Pick Up Locations spread all over town. Here are our Winter Stops.

VACATIONS

Each customer can have up to 4 weeks vacation from the program. Click here to learn more.

ALLERGIES/RESTRICTIONS

Let us know when you sign up that you need to avoid certain foods, and we’ll accommodate your needs as best we can by offering a substitution at the truck. You’ll also get an email each week with what will be in the share, so be sure to check it out online and touch base with your greeter when you pick up.

REFUNDS

For whatever reason, at whatever time, if our subscription doesn’t work for you, we’ll refund the remainder of your subscription– all we need is one week’s notice.
