Market Shares

The market share is designed for the utmost flexibility. We provide you with a prepaid debit card to use at our farmer's market booth throughout our 28-week season from early June through mid-December. You can use it as often as you'd like to buy as much or as little as you'd like. Just need to stop by to pick up a bunch of carrots, no problem! Got lots of guests in town and planning a big meal? No problem there, either! Going on vacation and not going to be able to pick up? Problem solved!

You'll be able to buy everything from produce and flowers, to canning tomatoes and eggs with your credit. 

Consider our market share if you...

  • ...enjoy picking out your own produce.
  • ...need varying amounts of produce week-to-week (go on vacation, cook for company, etc.).
  • ...frequently shop at our farmer’s market booth.
  • ...want to commit to supporting local farming.

The flexibility is only limited by our availability. We're aiming to nearly double our production in 2017, so we intend to have a wide variety with large volumes throughout the season. However, as crops just start coming in, availability may be limited.  We will be growing over 40 varieties of vegetables and herbs, along with a wide range of flowers to keep our market booth well-stocked with all your favorites.

THE PERKS

All market share members will receive a convenient pre-loaded debit card to use during their visits. You'll also receive our weekly member e-Newsletter, and invitations to our member tours and other member events.

HOW IT WORKS:

Once you register, you'll receive your debit card in the mail, pre-loaded with your credit and bonus credit. Once the season is about to get rolling, we'll send you an e-mail to remind you. 

WHEN AND WHERE?

You can find us at the Cheboygan Farmers' Market from 8-1 on Wednesday and Saturday in Festival Square during the summer season from early June through the end of October. We haven't finalized our location for our 2017 winter market, but we're getting there; we'll let everyone know when we get it figured out!

COST + BONUS CREDIT

You can purchase anywhere between $300 and $600 in credit to get started and you'll earn the corresponding bonus credit that will be added to your card. Additional credit can be purchased at any time in $50 increments and you will receive your corresponding initial bonus credit.  For example, if you purchased a $400 credit and subsequently add $50, you'll receive an additional $5 (10%) bonus credit.

Credit Purchased Bonus Credit Added
$300 $15 (5%)
$400 $40 (10%)
$500 $62.50 (12.5%)
$600 $90 (15%)

We are fully booked for the 2017 season! Please join our newsletter to stay up to date this season, be in the know about our winter farm shares, and when sign up begins for next season. We'll see you at the Cheboygan Farmers' Market!

Work Shares

Like the idea of spending some time on the farm each week? We’ve got eight workshare openings for 2017. In exchange for two hours a week over our 18-week farm share season (two vacation weeks allowed), you will receive a $250 credit that can be used to purchase a Traditional Share or a Market Share.
