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.


Sign ups are now open!  

It's that time of the year again! Sign ups for the spring 2017 season are now open! The spring share will run for eleven weeks, from February 9th to April 27th, excluding the week of spring break (March 30th). Due to the immense and rapid growth of our program, we are reaching our operational and purchasing capacities. Beginning in the spring 2017 season, we will be introducing a cap on our full cost shares. We will be accepting full cost shareholders on a first come, first served basis for the first 390 shares.
