First things first: here are some important details about the Winter Share.
Pick ups are every week for the first three weeks and then every other week after that.
For the first three weeks of the Winter Share (November 4th - 21st) you'll pick up your bag every week.
Thanksgiving is the first off-week of the Winter Share (Thanksgiving pick ups are that week, but no Winter Bag.)
After that, we'll alternate on and off weeks for a total of 15 pick ups. Christmas is during an off-week, but there IS a pick up on New Year's.
You can take 4 weeks vacation from the share.
Have a sunny holiday destination in mind this year? Great! You can take up to 4 weeks off from the share and receive a bag's worth of credit for each week you're out to use once you're back towards the purchase of more good food. You just have to tell us by Saturday night the week before you're gone. More info here
If you have an allergy or food restriction, please tell your Greeter when you pick up.
If you notified us that you have a restriction or an allergy, it is in our system, but to ensure that you don't get what you cannot eat, and you happen to see it listed in the Bag Contents that week, just let your Greeter know and they will make a substitution.
This does not mean that just because you don't like Brussels Sprouts you can have a substitution: we're trying to be flexible to accommodate JUST restrictions and allergies. If you know you and your family will absolutely truly NOT eat those sprouts, try swapping with someone in line who might love them.
Some days and times are different from the Summer Share.
You should have received by now your "Welcome to Winter, Fresh Forker!" email with all of the stops. If you haven't yet or you accidentally deleted it, click below for your stop's information.
Special Orders must be placed by Midnight on Tuesday of the Share Week.
Especially if there is something you know you need-- extra eggs for baking, a whole chicken for the in-laws coming over, etc. -- please place a Special Order. It's really easy, and when you get to the Greeter table to pick up your bag, just let your Greeter know about your order. Click here for more details.
We have a Winter Vegetarian Pilot Program Starting this year.
We've invited some of our Summer Share 2015 Vegetarian and Vegan members to help us begin a trial for a Vegetarian Winter Share this year: we're figuring it out week-by-week based on produce availability, and we really appreciate your patience and feedback as we go!
Winter Vegetarian Customers-- you'll be picking up an orange or khaki colored bag at the back of the truck (unless the Greeter lets you know they've run out of your color but you have the right bag.)
Also for our Winter Veggie Customers-- you can still pick up at any stop that's convenient for you: we will always pack some extra veggie bags on each truck. But because it's a really small pilot group, if you find another stop is consistently more convenient for you, please write to us
and we'll update your home location preference.
We're there snow or shine, but the weather might cause a change in the bag contents.
Except in extreme circumstances and to ensure the safety of our staff and subscribers, we will always be at the stop regardless of weather. Sometimes we have delays due to weather, the roads, or issues at the farms or with the trucks (they take a beating over the season!) and we'll do our best to inform you of any changes to our timing via email or social media. Follow us on Facebook
to get the updates.
If you miss your stop, head to another one.
Sometimes it's weather, school pick ups, work, or whatever that might cause you to miss your stop. Don't panic, just click here
to check out the list of all our Winter Stops.
Remember, that unless you've placed a Special Order, you can pick up at any of our stops and you do not need to let us know ahead of time.
is the last pick up of the week, so if you're going to miss that one, best bet is to ask a friend or neighbor to pick up for you.
