Sign-ups for the 2020 Market Share are open for pick-up at the Columbia Heights (Wed) market!
The Market Share is our local food subscription program open to anyone and everyone with fruits and veggies from our market farmers.
How the FRESHFARM Market Share works
- Sample the Market: Every week, you’ll receive fruits and veggies from our market vendors.
- Taste the Seasons: Never miss a beet (or a berry!) when you join the Market Share. Being a member ensures you get a taste of every seasonal favorite.
- Discounts for residents facing food insecurity: Families who rely on SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) and WIC (supplemental nutrition assistance for Women Infants and Children) are able to purchase Market Share bags at a 75% discount. We also deliver subsidized Shares to childcare centers and apartment buildings across the city. Plus, the Market Share is the only CSA to offer delivery for seniors for whom getting to the market can be challenging.
- Eat Well, Do Better: When you join the Market Share, you’re not only taking healthy food home, you’re helping bring food to families facing food insecurity. This season, Social Impact is built into every share and more important than ever. All revenue from shares goes directly to FRESHFARM’s emergency food programs in response to COVID-19 and food access programs, currently reaching nearly 700 low-income families in DC with weekly produce.
