Each market establishes how they would like to handle payments for orders. Some markets require payment at time of purchase, some markets require payment at time of order using PayPal or a credit card, and some markets allow either payment at pick up or at time of order. After you select your products to purchase you will proceed to checkout. During the checkout process you will be notified about your payment options and if more than one option is available you will be asked to select your preferred method of payment.
When you view available products a box above the product list will show a link to "Additional Pick Up Information". Click on this link to view the pick up location for your order. Some markets have more than one pick up location. If your market has more than one pick up location you will be asked to select a pick up location during the checkout process.
When you view available products a box above the product list will indicate the pick up date for your order. The box will also show a link to "Additional Pick Up Information". Click on this link to view the order pick up time and any other information related to picking up your order. If your market has more than one pick up location there may be a different pick up time for each pick up location. If your market has more than one pick up location you will be asked to select a pick up location during the checkout process. Your pick up time will correlate with the pick up location selected.
Split items are items available to the market in wholesale quantities only. However, the wholesale quantity can be "split" by a number of buyers. If exactly the entire wholesale quantity is ordered then each buyer will get the amount they ordered. If more or less than the exact wholesale quantity is ordered then the amount each buyer will actually get may be different than the amount the buyer ordered. When you hover on the order quantity box for a split item, shown with a green background, a popup will appear with the following information: Order Qty: Enter what portion of the total quantity you want to order + : Enter any additional amount you are willing to take. - : Enter any lesser amount you are willing to take. Additional information about the split may also be shown. Split Information: Split status (Filled or Unfilled), split size, and amount remaining to fill the split. Split Participants: Who is currently participating in the split and the quantity each participant has ordered. Note: By default the splits participant name is "Private." In order for the participant's actual name to appear the participant must set "Splits Privacy" to off in their "My Profile" page. Because ordered split item quantities may not actually be delivered unless the entire wholesale quantity is sold, at the end of the order cycle the market manager will make a determination as to what quantity of the item ordered will actually be delivered and will notify the buyer.

Our History - The Food Connects food hub began as Windham Farm and Food (WFF). It was piloted by Hans Estrin and Harlow Farms in the fall of 2009, and coordinated with assistance from UVM Extension since Spring 2010. Post Oil Solutions provided support in 2012, leading up to WFF's launch as a mission-driven LLC in 2013. After two successful years as an LLC, WFF partnered with Food Connects to become a part of their core programs at the start of 2015. Since the food hub is truly at the heart of Food Connects' work we dissolved the WFF name in 2017 and now the food hub goes by Food Connects.
