2019 CSA Market Share
2019 CSA Market Share
When you order a market share box with Raleigh’s Hillside Farm, you are technically ordering a gift card to be used to purchase future products from a private market share member online store. The website platform we use does not allow you to combine other orders with gift card purchases so if you desire add-on items or other products you will have to enter your payment information twice.
A market share is essentially a fully customizable CSA membership. Think of it like going to the farmer’s market each week and picking out exactly what you like, except that you will be shopping from an online store we send you every Sunday and boxes will be delivered to a neighborhood pick-up site on Thursday.
You pay up-front in the spring, receive a digital gift card, and work down the total throughout the season through your weekly orders. Funds are self-managed and non-refundable. However, you may absolutely share with a friend or gift to the farm to donate to our local Evansville food pantry if you are worried you will not use them all.
Placing weekly orders takes a bit more energy than a standard CSA share, but your reward is a box filled with exactly what you want to eat for the week. This is the perfect share for the household who knows exactly what they want!
The market share comes in three sizes depending on the amount of vegetables you think your household will eat:
For reference, a traditional Large CSA share receives about $700 worth of produce and a traditional Small CSA share receives about $450 worth of produce.
All market shares will be delivered on Thursday afternoons/evenings. The exact window of time for pick up varies by location. Please note that you can receive a delivery whenever you like and that you do NOT need to order each week. The delivery season runs from June 13th-October 10th.
Market Shares will be delivered on Thursdays to five of our CSA delivery sites:
On Farm (Marsh Rd, Brodhead)
Evansville (2nd St)
Stoughton (Patterson St)
East Madison (Orton Ct)
Middleton (Windfield Way)
We will email all market share participants after sign-up to collect delivery site preferences.
Market share members are considered CSA members of Raleigh’s Hillside Farm and will therefore enjoy so much more than just the certified organic vegetables grown with love. CSA members also enjoy:
Weekly newsletters packed with recipes, storage tips, farm stories, photos and vegetable identification tips
Access to our CSA Facebook group where members can share recipes, learn from each other and receive special bonus resources from the farm
