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.
Season starts at $675
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 will be the fourth week of the Winter Share. Then we'll go every other week for the rest of the season:
- Winter Week 1: Nov 6 – Nov 9
- Winter Week 2: Nov 13 – Nov 16
- Winter Week 3: Nov 20 – Nov 23
- Winter Week 4: Dec 4 – Dec 7
- Winter Week 5: Dec 18 – Dec 21
- Winter Week 6: Jan 1 – Jan 4
- Winter Week 7: Jan 15 – Jan 18
- Winter Week 8: Jan 29 – Feb 1
- Winter Week 9: Feb 12 – Feb 15
- Winter Week 10: Feb 26 – Feb 29

The Summer Share 2020 will begin in early June, 2020.

JOIN ANYTIME - PRO-RATED SHARES
The Winter Share is currently full. As we approach the end of the season, our farmers have already planted/planned for the membership numbers that we have had for a majority of the season. We understand that the demand for local is increasing with everything going on -- we're trying to secure more product and will send an email announcement if more shares become available. In the meantime, you can get your local grocery fix from our family company Ohio City Provisions. They're open daily, 10 am - 7 pm, taking phone orders and offering curbside pick up.
PICK UP LOCATIONS
We have more than a dozen Winter Pick Up Locations spread all over town. Here are our Winter Stops.
Each customer can have up to 4 weeks vacation from the program. Click here to learn more. Vacations must be submitted in our system by 11:59pm the Saturday BEFORE your vacation week. You can submit the vacation in your account, or just let the greeter at your pickup location know at least one week before your vacation and we can enter it into the system for you.
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.
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.
