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 early May. There are pick-ups every week for the first three weeks of November, then the week of Thanksgiving we’ll have Thanksgiving deliveries only (no Winter Share), and the following week is the first “off-week” of the share. Then we’ll go every other week for the rest of the season:

  • Winter Week 1: October 31st-Nov 3rd
  • Winter Week 2: November 7th – 10th
  • Winter Week 3: November 14th – 17th
  • Winter Week 4: December 5th – 8th
  • Winter Week 5: December 19th – 22nd
  • Winter Week 6: Jan 2nd – Jan 5th
  • Winter Week 7: Jan 16th – 19th
  • Winter Week 8: Jan 30th – Feb 2nd
  • Winter Week 9: Feb 13th – 16th
  • Winter Week 10: Feb 27th – March 2nd
  • Winter Week 11: March 13th-16th
  • Winter Week 12: March 27th-30th
  • Winter Week 13: April 10th – 13th
  • Winter Week 14: April 24th-27th
  • Winter Week 15: May 8-11th

The Summer Share 2019 will begin in early June, 2019. To view and/or print a PDF of the Winter Share season’s calendar, click on the calendar below.

BAG CONTENTS

There is just one share size only in Winter, available as either an Omnivore or Vegetarian Share.  To see what previous seasons have looked like, click here.

PRICING

We have two share options: the Winter Share Package (in Omnivore or Vegetarian), or the Winter Share Package + the Full Access Add on. Winter Share Package

  • Available in Vegetarian or Omnivore
  • Full Upfront cost is $675, which works out to about $45/bag, but with every other week delivery, it’s an average cost of $22.50 per week.
  • The other option for payment is the Divided Payment Plan, which splits the cost into two installments: $357.50 due in October, and $357.50 in January ($715).

Winter Share Package + Full Access Add On

  • Pick either the Winter Share Omnivore or Vegetarian as your base package, and then pay for your credits upfront to get extra spending value.
  • 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.
  • Full Upfront cost is $1050, or you can choose the Divided Payment Plan, which splits the cost into two installments: $557.50 due in October, and $557.50 in January ($1,115 total.)

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 mid-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.
