The Farm Direct Coop is a multi-farm cooperative in operation for more than 20 years with a choice of two pickup days weekly in Marblehead, Melrose and Salem. We offer two sizes of vegetable and fruit shares along with several specialty shares, including bread, local cheese, a chef's share and eggs. Opportunities to order these and other items in bulk occur throughout the year.
The regular season runs 20 weeks June through October. If you choose to extend the growing season, we also offer a November and December share, along with a Bulk Order of storage fruits and vegetables, grains and specialty products like jams and maple syrup in the late fall.
Enrollment for the 2015 season begins in January.
RETURNING MEMBERS can reclaim their spots by submitting a 2015 Enrollment Form and $100 deposit by February 15th. After that date, we will begin inviting people from the waitlist. Once we get through the waitlist, any remaining spots will be open to the general public.
NEW MEMBERS: If you would like to join Marblehead or Melrose, please fill out a Waitlist Form (posted to the right under Forms) and we will contact you as soon as we are able to offer you a spot. The waitlist is organized by the date stamp on the Waitlist Form, so the soon it is filled out the better. There is no waitlist for the Salem location, so you may fill out a 2015 Enrollment Form as soon as it’s posted.
