What time/day is pick-up?

Why isn't the Coastal Foodshed Virtual Market showing up on my app or website?

The delivery option will only be visible to you if your zip code is in our delivery area: Acushnet, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Marion, Mattapoisett, and Rochester. Everyone should be able to see the Coastal Foodshed Virutal Market with the option to pick-up at our office on Wednesdays. If you don't see anything, it may be because the market is not yet open. We are open for shopping Saturday-Monday.

I can see the market, but is says FULL or CLOSED.

The Virtual Market may say "market not available" because we are not open until 8am on Saturdays.

We also have a set number of delivery slots that we can fulfill. Once we sell out of spots, the market is closed for deliveries. If the delivery slots are full, consider shopping at our online market and choosing the pick-up option at our office (38 Blackmer St., New Bedford) on Wednesdays from 2-5pm.  

Can you purchase food on the virtual market using SNAP/HIP benefits?

Yes! SNAP (and also P-EBT) customers can shop only for pre-order, pick-up options at this time. No delivery available. You will pre-order and pay upon pickup at 38 Blackmer St. New Bedford. HIP benefits will be applied upon purchase. SNAP can only be applied to SNAP eligible items. All other non-eligible items can be charged with a credit card or paid with cash upon pick-up.
