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.

VACATIONS

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.

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.

I’m sad that is has come to an end because every Friday it was like Christmas! Even though I knew what was going to be in the bag (mostly), it was still a bit of a surprise – many times because I getting an item that I had never eaten or cooked with. Also, with the summer share coming to an end it also means that we are into fall and you know what comes next!!! I have to admit, however, that it has gotten increasingly difficult to make plans to use all the item with a busy fall schedule so there is a part of me that is relieved. It is definitely easier to do this during the summer months when work is a little more of a relaxed schedule. I think we will definitely participate again next. Fresh Fork offers a Winter Share, […]
