Syracuse Cooperative Market is excited to announce the new and improved 2020 Co-op Share! This year we have decided to shorten our season to make sure all our subscribers receive the most plentiful produce from beginning to end. The Co-op Share is scheduled to be available from May 22nd – November 5th, 2020.
When subscribing to The Co-op Share, keep in mind that your purchase will be supporting dozens of farms throughout New York State. Sourcing from multiple farms means more variety! Curated by our Produce Manager, each box is hand-picked week to week giving you 8-11 items of the most wonderful produce grown right here in our New York soil.
In the shares, you will find that the majority of the items packed are Certified Organic. While this is not guaranteed, we do make every effort to primarily work with farms that pledge organic, use IPM*, hydroponically grow, or are certified naturally grown. (*IPM is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties).
Why subscribe to The Co-op Share instead of a CSA?
The full local season can be a big commitment! The flexibility of The Co-op Share allows subscribers to choose how many weeks they would like to subscribe to. With one single week box always being an option, you can save more per box by subscribing in 5 week increments up to the full 25 weeks. For those who subscribe to less than 25 weeks, we are happy to coordinate pick-up postponement due to travel or other conflicts with at least a week’s notice.
The Co-op Share’s season will last 25 weeks, from May 22 – Nov 5
