There are four easy steps:
We offer two different options to receive your purchases: Home delivery OR pick-up at our office (466 Brock Ave., New Bedford), both on Wednesdays. These are the same markets with the same vendors. Click either the delivery or pick-up market to choose your preferred method.
Shopping for both options is open Saturday 8am until we sell out of both delivery and pick-up spots
We deliver to Dartmouth, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Acushnet.
The delivery fee is $5.99 and the pick-up fee is $2.99.
Delivery is Wednesday from 12-6pm. You will receive a notification from your driver when they are on their way.
No one needs to be home at the time of delivery. If you’d like us to leave it in a particular location, please specify in the “chat option” on WhatsGood to CFS’s Mobile Farm Stand.
Pick-up is at Coastal Foodshed’s office: 466 Brock Ave, New Bedford from 2-5pm
The delivery option will only be visible to you if your zip code is in our delivery area: Dartmouth, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Acushnet. Everyone should be able to see the NB Farmers Market with the option to pick-up at our office on Wednesdays.
We 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 (466 Brock Ave., New Bedford) on Wednesdays from 2-5pm. Coastal Foodshed also operates a Mobile Farm Stand at their offices on Thursdays 12-5pm for a “walk-in drive thru.” No pre-orders. All orders are placed and paid for on-site. All payments are accepted here: credit/debit, cash/check, SNAP/HIP
SNAP/HIP is not accepted at our online New Bedford Farmers Market. Currently, we are only able to accept credit/debit cards through WhatsGood. In Massachusetts, it is not legal for SNAP customers to make online purchases (we will continue to advocate for this service). Coastal Foodshed’s Mobile Farm Stand does accept all forms of payment including SNAP/HIP on Thursdays from 12-5pm at 466 Brock Ave. in New Bedford. The Farm stand has a “walk-in drive thru.” The Mobile Farm Stand offers a great selection of produce, meat, eggs, bread, pastries, kombucha, jams, salsa and more.
While there is no minimum purchase required, we do kindly suggest orders be at least $25 as both delivery and pickup slots are limited.
