Farm Share Delivering to Drexel
May 10, 2016
Want to get nutritious vegetables and get back time spent grocery shopping? The Common Market Farm Share is here to help by delivering a curated selection of fresh, local, and high-quality food right to your workplace.
Sign up for the service for as low as $27 dollars a share, and receive 10 bi-weekly deliveries of food sourced directly from small farms that practice sustainable growing methods from July through November. Each share contains six to eight varieties of fruits and vegetables and a dozen certified humane eggs. You can also choose to add fresh bread, artisan cheese, locally made yogurt and antibiotic-free poultry to your order.
2015 members had rave reviews about this service. They were pleased with the variety of items in their deliveries, which allowed them to try new things, and the great value for food of quality.
The Common Market Farm Share works with growers who use environmentally friendly growing methods, and only source from farmers and food artisans who show their commitment to sustainability in their responsible land stewardship and fair business practice.
Did you know that farm share members who used The Common Market’s insulated tote bags to pick up their farm share prevented approximately 19,572 boxes from entering landfills this past year? How about that your farm share produce will only travel an average of 88 miles to reach The Common Market warehouse in Philadelphia before your farm share delivery? Compare that to the 1,500 miles that the average American meal travels from farm to plate! By registering for The Common Market Farm Share you are helping to reduce waste, preserve local farmland and promote sustainable agricultural practices.
