SUPPORT LOCAL FARMS + VENDORS

 

Community Foodworks is committed to partnering with local, family farms to bring you a taste of the region. Get to know the farmers who make the Market Share possible.

 

PLEITEZ PRODUCE FARM

The Pleitez family farms on 80 acres of land across Westmoreland and King George counties in the Northern Neck region of Virginia. They have over 25 years of farming experience and have been attending farmers markets in the area since 2002, with a focus on growing from non-GMO seeds and using sustainable methods of integrated pest management for the wide variety of vegetables that they grow.

78 ACRES

Matt and Mary Harsh have been operating 78 Acres in Smithsburg, Maryland (formerly Chesley Vegetable Farms) and attending area farmers markets since 1998. They now farm on over 100 acres of land, growing a stunning array of fruits and vegetables, including several varieties of berries, cherries, peaches, plums, grapes, apples, and pears.

Three Springs Fruit Farm

Ben Wenk is the seventh generation of his family to take over farm operations at Three Springs Fruit Farm in Adams County, Pennsylvania, which has been in business since 1901. Three Springs farms on over 300 acres of land mostly dedicated to apples, peaches, and cherries, while also offering a selection of berries, treefruit, and diversified veggies at their farm stand.

You will be charged a one-time $5 fee for your burlap bag when you sign-up. This is non-refundable. Please *!* remember to bring back the burlap bag each week when you pick up your share! This helps save resources so we can provide more fresh food and purchase fewer bags throughout the season.

You can add items like eggs, beef, goats cheese, sausage, chicken, and vegan sausage to your Market Share.  You can sign up for add-ons independent of a produce Share. YES - get a discount on your recurring protein purchases, and choose whatever produce you like from the market. 

 

YOUR SOCIAL IMPACT

Did you know that the Market Share offers discounted memberships for residents who rely on Federal food benefits, like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, AKA Food Stamps) ) and WIC (Women, Infants, and Children Benefits)? We also deliver Shares to childcare facilities, clinics, senior residences, and other community institutions where folks experience limited access to fresh, affordable produce.

ALL the revenue from the Market Share is recycled back into the program to make our Shares affordable. When you choose a SOCIAL IMPACT SHARE, you’re helping that much more to provide essential subsidies on fresh produce to fellow customers who need support.

The Social Impact option adds a $3 donation to your  weekly Market Share bag, and help ensure that all of us in the neighborhood who are excited about fresh, local produce have the access we deserve.
