WHAT IS A MARKET SHARE?
The easiest way to shop at Farmers Market!
Everyone loves to have a "taste of the farm" experience, and we know that CSA isn't for everyone. Enter the Market Share! This is the quickest and simplest way to shop at our Farmers Market booth, and a great way to support our farm! With a Market Share you are purchasing a credit early in the year: then you can simply visit our booth at the McMinnville Downtown Farmers Market, any time between May & October and choose your veggies or flowers.
There are three great options for Market Shares. The Big Eater and The Sampler come with additional bonus credit--essentially a discount on Farmer’s Market produce! If you select a share value that qualifies for a bonus, you will receive an additional credit that will be automatically applied to your account.
The Healthy Eater A $300 credit toward your market purchases, or roughly $15 per market. A BONUS CREDIT of $45 will be applied, for a total of $345 market credit (15% off of our market prices).
The Sampler A $200 credit toward your market purchases, or roughly $10 per market. A BONUS CREDIT of $20 will be applied, for a total of $220 market credit (10% off of our market prices).
The Taster A $100 credit toward your market purchases, or roughly $5/market. A BONUS CREDIT of $5 will be applied, for a total of $105 market credit (5% discount off of our market prices).

HOW DOES IT WORK?
You can use your Market Share credit to purchase any veggies, fruit, herbs, or flowers we have for sale at our market stand. We will keep track of your purchases and let you know your balance each time you visit. Once you spend it down, you can purchase another credit right then and there, or on our website! Easy-peasy.
WHY A MARKET SHARE?
Being a CSA member is not for everyone – big summer trips or other plans sometime throw a wrench in this great plan. A market share is a great way to buy your produce up front to get more value for your dollar! Also, it is a great way to support your farmers by paying up front for your vegetables, helping us buy the seeds, equipment, and other things we need to grow the highest quality, most delicious produce and beautiful blooms for you.
Market Shares will be redeemable during the 2015 McMinnville Downtown Farmers Market season, from May 12th to October 6th (22 weeks). Your balance cannot roll over to another year or be used for purchases outside of our market stand. If you have a balance at the end of the season, we recommend you stock up on veggies and store them for winter eating!
GIVE THE GIFT OF A MARKET SHARE!
Market Shares make great gifts! If you are purchasing one as a gift, please indicate that in the "notes" section on the membership form. We will follow up with you directly regarding the recipient's name & contact information so we can communicate with them during the season. We will also provide you with a printable sheet explaining the Market Share that you can give to the recipient.
