Our Fruit and Vegetable Share contains a seasonal variety of 7 produce items all sourced from our local Texas farms. Each delivery, shares arrive in a pre-packed box ready for you to pick-up and take home.

Sample Share (will adjust with the seasons):

  • 2-4 Beefsteak Tomatoes
  • 1 lb. of Apples
  • 3 ears of Sweet Corn
  • 1 lb. of Potatoes
  • 1 head of hydroponic Lettuce
  • 1 lb. of Cucumbers
  • 1.75 lb. Winter Squash

    As a Farm Share member, you become an important part of our commitment to purchase from our farmers year-round and improve local farm viability. Each season, our Procurement team collaborates with our farmers to plan exactly which items will be in your share based on what they can grow and what quantities we will need to meet our demand. Through crop planning, we are able to ensure a market for our farmers best seasonal product at a fair price to our customers.


    Our full season has 10 bi-weekly deliveries.


    We have two payment options: a single payment upfront or 10 bi-weekly payments. You will choose your preferred method of payment when you get to the checkout page.


    To help coordinate the deliveries of food every other week, we work with a Site Host at your Farm Share site - usually a good food advocate, someone involved in workplace wellness or food service - who is our point of contact, and available to answer questions from participants throughout the season. The Site Host will identify the optimal times for delivery and employee pickup and be present during employee pickup. If allowed by the organization's gift policy, the Site Host can receive a free share for their help with coordination.


    With the exceptions of holidays, your pickup day, time and location will remain the same for the entire Farm Share season. We also email you every other week prior to your delivery as a reminder that Farm Share is coming! If you know you will be on vacation or out of town the day you have a pickup, you can have a friend come and pickup for you. The Common Market does not refund, replace, or give credit for missed shares.


    We ensure the freshest, highest quality items reach your sites — our food safety standards and commitment to quality should stand out. Our team hand packs your items to ensure they meet our standards. In the event that you do not feel satisfied with the items in your delivery, please email us immediately at texas@cmfarmshare.org with a photograph of the items in question. We do not offer substitution items, but rather will issue credits when appropriate.


    We suggest that you gift it to a fellow Farm Share Member at your site or give a friend the gift of local produce!


    The Common Market Farm Share delivers on Thursdays. Site Hosts will indicate their delivery time preferences prior to the start of the Farm Share season.
