The Fall Market Share will run for 10 weeks from September 28th - December 7th (excluding the week of Thanksgiving, November 23rd). Distribution will take place every Thursday on College Hill at the Brown/RISD Hillel (80 Brown St.) from 12 - 6pm. We are not delivering to the Jewelry District this season.

BMSP offers both full-cost and subsidized shares to make fresh, local produce accessible to all members of the Brown community. Our subsidized program is only available to staff, faculty, and graduate students.
