Mobile Farmers Market
Duke Employees seeking access to fresh produce at their doorstep can have shopping done for them with the Mobile Farmers Market. Farmers use the term Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) to describe the program where a variety of fruits, vegetables, and other local products are hand-selected, individually boxed, and brought from the field to you! Our Mobile Farmers Market program helps connect Employees to local CSAs so they can have weekly or bi-weekly produce boxes delivered conveniently to their home or workplace.
How to Sign up for a Mobile Market CSA
Signing up is easy and takes three simple steps:
- Browse our diverse list of participating Mobile Market farmers here.
- Once you have found a farm you wish to support, visit their website for a registration form that will include detailed information on how to sign-up.
- Send your payment with your form directly to the farmer or vendor. If you have any questions, call or e-mail the farmer or vendor directly.
Pre-ordered boxes are available for pick-up from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens (map), and from 4:45 to 5:15 p.m. Tuesdays at Duke Raleigh Hospital. Some farmers and vendors also deliver directly to offices or homes.
Farmers provide produce in share sizes. A share represents your part of a week's harvest. Some farmers have individual, couple, and family share sizes available. Please read each farmer's registration form or web site carefully to see what share sizes they offer. Below are examples of what a typical share may look like:
|A "family" share||A "couple" share||An "individual" share|
