Why is there a fee?

Operational costs, for Curbside, as well as traditional markets, cannot be covered by reasonable vendor fees alone. Additional support for traditional markets has historically been provided by sponsorships and grants – these avenues have been greatly disrupted by COVID-19.

The fee is necessary to continue to provide the Curbside service, as well as plan to open and operate Countryside Farmers’ Markets at Howe Meadow and Highland Square.

The fee, however, does not cover the full gap. Please consider adding a donation (available in $10 increments in the Curbside store) to your order.

As always, if the fee presents a problem for you, please contact us at 
curbside@cvcountryside.org and we will do our best to accommodate you.
