A: We invite you to participate in our buyer’s program by pre-paying for your produce up-front, in exchange for a discount on all specified market items correlating with the amount you pre-pay. Pre-paying helps the farm better prepare for the produce needs of its community. The best part? There aren’t any expiration dates on credits. As long as The Woodside Market is open, you can shop there! Please always reach out with any questions you may have! Learn more about Farm Shares here.
