Are there membership fees?
At this time we have chosen not to have an annual membership fee. Instead there will be a surcharge of 8% per transaction.
This surcharge is to help cover the operation costs associated with the market.
An example of how the surcharge will affect your purchase: surcharge on a $25 purchase would be $2.
Will I have to buy vegetables I don't want?
Unlike some co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with our online market you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, fresh flowers, artisan goods and hand crafted items available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
How do I order?
Each Sunday evening, a list of available products is sent to all of our registered customers by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week no later than Thursday at 10 p.m. Orders can be placed here on our website. Ordering through this web site is our preferred method as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes us to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products.
When do I pay?
We accept cash or SNAP/EBT benefits when you pick up your order.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
From 9 a.m. to noon Saturday morning, customers can pick-up their produce at the Siloam Springs Farmers Market, located in City Park at the corner of Mt Olive and University streets
Why Support Locally Grown?
Enhance your local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Provide learning opportunities: Siloam Springs Farmers Market supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
How can I sell through this market?
If you’ve already created a customer account here, simply go to Our Growers and click on ‘If you would like to sell through this market, please tell us about yourself and a market manager will contact you.’. This will add you to our system and our market managers will contact you with the next step. We do charge a 7% commission on your overall sales. Like at a traditional farmers market, you do get to set your own prices and list your items as you wish. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more information.
