And here are some answers:

Are there membership fees?

Rancho Alegre Farm has generously agreed to sponsor the Market. This includes the use of the Country Store for pickup and the cost it incurs. There is an annual membership fee of $25.00 due at the time of your 3rd order at the Market. This allows you to try the market twice before committing to a membership.

Will I have to buy vegetables I don't want?

The Market is rather like a Farmers’ Market — but with the convenience of being on-line! If you order produce box’s those are predetermined and cannot be changed. Farmers will post any other produce that is fresh and available for Market pickup on Wednesday — with pictures, descriptions and quantities available. Simply add the item to your shopping cart and it will be added to your order!

Why support Locally Grown?

Enhance your local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.

Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.

Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.

Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.

We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
