2019 Market Share CSA

For 2019 we are introducing a simpler and more flexible approach to the CSA model – CSA Market Bucks.

You still still pay in advance which helps the farm cover early season expenses and you still receive a 5%-15% discount depending on the number of Bucks you buy. 

Here’s how it works:

Members purchase Calliope Farm CSA Market Bucks, which are just like punch cards or gift certificates, credit is marked off as purchases are made at the market.  Redeem your credit with us at the Olympia Farmers Market Thursday – Sunday beginning early May through October and Saturday – Sunday during November and December. 

Cards are sold in $50 increments, when you use one up, move onto the next.  The more you buy the greater the discount.  You can buy more if you run out as long as we haven’t sold out.

Bucks are available as follows:

$95 for 2 cards = $100 in Bucks = 5% savings

$225 for 5 cards = $250 in Bucks = 10% savings

$440 for 10 cards = $500 in Bucks = 12% saving

Early bird discount: $425 for 10 cards purchased by May 15 = $500 in Bucks = 15% savings

Why this Model? 

Choose the items that you want. 

Flexible pick up days and times and no worries about missing a week. 

Flexible sizing, week by week. 

You’re still supporting the small farm economy and local food security. 

More opportunity for customer/farmer interaction. 

You’re still saving money. 

How do you sign up?

Please sign up by emailing the farm at calliopefarmoly@gmail.com

Simply let us know how many Bucks you’d like to buy and confirm the name/names you’d like on your Bucks.  We’ll confirm your order and will have your Bucks ready for you to pickup at the market.

For the early bird discount please send a check to:

Calliope Farm

1335 Overhulse Rd NW

Olympia, WA 98502

For cash or EBT payment (yes we accept EBT) please email the farm to sign up and bring your payment when you come to the market to pick up your Bucks.

Please note that we keep it low tech and do not have the ability to swipe cards at the market other than EBT, nor do we accept online payment.

Also note that this spring of 2019 we are taking a long winter break to work on infrastructure projects and we will be returning to market in late April or early May.

The fine print:

-Lost cards are non refundable, that’s one reason they are in $50 increments.

-All credit needs to be used up by Dec 31st, at which time it expires.  We plan our production based on selling this produce in the current growing season.
