FAQs

  • HOW MUCH IS A SHARE?

    • There a variety of pricing options available. It all depends on how much you would like to purchase. There are also additional items you can add to your share such as eggs, bread, yogurt, and more! You can find all of the pricing here.

  • HOW CAN I PAY FOR MY FARM SHARE?

    • You can pay for your share on www.cmfarmshare.org when you sign up. You MUST use a Credit or Debit card to pay. Unfortunately, we are unable to take cash payments, SNAP, or EBT cards.

  • WHAT WILL I RECEIVE IN MY FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SHARE?

    • Fruit and Vegetable Share comes in 2 sizes, small and large, with 1 dozen certified humane eggs optional. The Small share contains a seasonal variety of 5-6 produce items and the large share contains a seasonal variety of 8-9 produce items. Each delivery, shares arrive in a pre-packed box ready for you to pick-up and take home. 

  • CAN I KNOW WHAT I’M GETTING IN A PARTICULAR SHARE AHEAD OF TIME?

    • Before a pick-up date, The Common Market will send you inspiring seasonal recipes and let you know exactly what to expect in your share.

  • WHY CAN’T I PICK WHAT I GET IN MY SHARE?

    • As a farm share member, you become an important part of The Common Market’s commitment to purchase from our farmers year-round and improve local farm viability. Each season, our Procurement Team collaborates with our farmers to plan exactly which items will be in your share and what quantities we will need to meet our demand. Through crop planning, we are able to ensure a market for our farmers’ best seasonal product at a fair price to our customers.

  • WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE SOMETHING?

    • It happens! And we have a solution. Each delivery, we send an extra farm share box to serve as the “Swap Box”. Place the item you’d like to swap into the box and trade it for another item that seems more appealing to you! Remember to place the entire quantity of the item into the Swap Box and remove the full quantity of the item you’re taking. For example, if you’re trading cucumbers for kale, place all of your cucumbers into the swap box, and remove the entire bunch of kale.

  • ARE PICK-UP DAYS WEATHER DEPENDENT?

    • Pick-up days will be rain or shine! And special instructions of severe weather will be emailed out ahead of the pick-up day.

  • WHAT IF I CAN’T PICK UP MY SHARE ON A PARTICULAR DAY?

    • With the exceptions of holidays, your pickup day, time and location will remain the same for the entire farm share season. The Common Market will email you every other week prior to your delivery as a reminder that farm share is coming! If you know you will be on vacation or out of town the day you have a pickup, you can have a friend come and pickup for you. The Common Market does not refund, replace, or give credit for missed shares.

  • WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY SHARE IF I DON’T PICK IT UP

    • If you are unable to pick up your share on a particular pick-up day, it will be donated to a local charity in Wilmington.
