If you are a weekly paying member, you will sign a commitment agreement to pick up your share of produce every week throughout the season. If you are away or cannot pick up your share a certain week, we do encourage you to have a friend or family member pick up your share for you. Simply email to indicate who will be picking up your share that week. PLEASE NOTE: If your share is not picked up, you will still be charged for that week.

Members will need to bring their own grocery bags (cloth, paper or plastic—whatever works for you!) to carry their produce home each week.
