The Brown Market Shares Program (BMSP) is a student-run, campus-based food distribution program connecting the Brown community with regional producers through affordable weekly shares of fresh, local, and sustainable produce, bread, eggs, dairy and meat.


Today is the first market day of the spring season! 

It's that time of the year again! Today is the first Market Day of the spring season! We are looking forward to seeing faces old and new at check-in today!

As a reminder, Market Day will be happening today, Friday February, 10th at Brown/RISD Hillel (80 Brown St). Pick-up hours will be from 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Next week we will revert to our normal schedule of pick-up hours taking place between 12:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Thursdays. 

Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause you. We ask for your understanding and cooperation. However, we understand that some shareholders may not be able to make these hours. If this is the case, we ask that you try and make alternative arrangements to have a friend pick up your share. If this is not possible, please get in touch with us at
