General Information (Fall Season)

We are not offering Jewelry District shares during fall 2017. 

Our pilot program in the Jewelry District began in the fall of 2014, and has been a great success thus far. Unfortunately given the reduced size of our summer program, we will not be delivering to the Jewelry District this season. Jewelry District shareholders are welcome to pick up at the College Hill location during the summer season.

Jewelry District Delivery Fee

We charge an additional delivery fee of $11-22 ($1-2 a week depending on the number of Jewelry District shareholders) and refundable bag deposit of $5.00 per season for Jewelry District shareholders (this fee does not change for shareholders in our subsidized program). This fee must be paid at the beginning of the season. The first share of the season will be packed in a paper bag. At the first Market Day you have the option of bringing two reusable bags or purchase two bags from BMSP that we will use for the duration of the season. After that, you will receive your share in reusable bags each week, which must be returned the following week. If you return your reusable bags each week, you will receive a $5.00 refund at the last Market Day. We will deduct $0.50 of this refund each week that you forget to return your bag.
