HILLTOWN FARM SHARE
Get fresh local produce every week!
Our Hilltown Farm Share program is SOLD OUT! Thank you so much for supporting our farms. All are welcome to shop at the Mobile Market each week for fresh produce; you don't need to have a share! See you there!
WHAT IS THE HILLTOWN MOBILE MARKET?
The Hilltown Mobile Market is an innovative collaboration to increase the availability of fresh, local, and affordable produce to Hilltown residents of Western Massachusetts. We are back for our second season in 2020! Your support during our pilot season last year resulted in increased grant funding to purchase a market vehicle and broaden our reach to more communities. Starting in July, we will bring "pop-up" markets to Blandford, Cummington, Huntington, and Worthington each week for twelve weeks, stocked with the freshest Hilltown-grown produce. Stop by and shop with cash, credit, debit, SNAP, WIC, or Senior FMNP Coupons!
& HILLTOWN FARM SHARE
In addition to our weekly markets, we also offer a special Hilltown Farm Share that supports our farms and guarantees you a share of that week's harvest. The twelve-week farm share is an affordable option with a sliding scale for $5-20 per week that is also eligible for HIP (Healthy Incentives Program) reimbursements! The share consists of approximately five items of your choice of produce each week from the market stand and is designed for senior and small households (larger households are welcome to sign up for more than one). It is the perfect way to enjoy fresh, healthy, affordable local food all summer long. UPDATE: Our farm shares sold out early this year but if you would like to be added to our list to be notified in the future when shares are available sign -up here!
