For Wednesday Market (current): Consumer Members order products from our producers on the Purple Porch Co-op web site during a shopping "window" over the weekend. Members then pick up and pay for their orders on Wednesday (5:00pm - 7:00 pm) of that week at our distribution center. Producers are paid within 10 days - less 5% and $3 which goes to the Co-op.
