Below you will find information for full-, middle-, and low-cost shares. Middle- and low-cost shares are two options we offer to shareholders in our subsidized program. To learn more about the program, click here. Scroll to the bottom of the page for payment options.
*Please note: Full, Mid, and Low refer to pricing levels, not amount of produce. All produce shares are the same in quantity.
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.
Biweekly Dairy Share
This season we will offering biweekly shares of Narragansett Creamery cheese and yogurt. Biweekly dairy shares will cost half of the season price listed below and will be picked up every other week. If you have any questions regarding why all dairy items are not offered on a biweekly basis, please e-mail email@example.com.
Additionally, we will also be offering the 32-oz container of plain whole milk yogurt from Sweet & Salty Farm, which is only available for pick up every other week.
