Here are some frequently asked questions:

And here are some answers:

Are there membership fees?

To help us provide farm tours, educational programs, and to help us with our overhead costs, we ask that you pay an annual fee of $25 per household for one calendar year. You are welcome to try us for two orders before officially becoming members.

Create your Customer Account this year, by December 31, 2018, and receive a Life membership. Never pay a yearly membership fee! As long as you continue your Side By Side Farms membership, you will not pay a membership fee to shop our online market.

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

Unlike some co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, fresh home baked items, milled products, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.

How do I order?

Each Sunday evening, a list of available products is sent to all of our registered customers by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week no later than Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. Orders can be placed here on our website. Ordering through this web site is our preferred method as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes us to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products.

When do I pay?

We accept cash or checks when you pick up your order. Because we may have to adjust your total then (to account for unnanounced items you decide to purchase or items that were unexpectedly unavailable), we also accept PayPal and (coming soon) credit/debit cards.

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.

How can I sell through this market?

If you’ve already created a customer account here, simply go to Our Growers and click on ‘If you would like to sell through this market, please tell us about yourself and a market manager will contact you.’.

This will add you to our system and our market managers will contact you with the next step.

While we do not charge a “Table Fee”, or a “Space Fee” like conventional farmers markets for the physical space in which you would set up your table on market days, we do charge a small, affordable percentage of each sale, to help defray the server and website expenses. As we are getting started, the fee is set at 6% of each item sold. This fee is deducted from your customers payment when they pick up their order and pay. The balance is paid to you. Side By Side Farms is not responsible for your personal/business tax liability and does not keep or provide growers/vendors with any year end sales/earnings statements.

Like at a traditional farmers’ market, you are able to set your own prices. On the site you have full access to list as many items as you want, provide a detailed description of each item and include pictures.
