Jessie's Cosmic Garden: 'Top Picks' CSA

Welcome to Our On-Line Marketplace

 

Ordering Reminders:

To shop the online marketplace (above the value of your market box), you need to be a member with a Personal Member Account (PMA). This account needs to have sufficient funds to cover your added purchases. If you need to top up your account to make the purchases you are attaching to your market box , here is the handy paypal button to do it now. Those using checks or cash payments had best top up when we make the previous weeks delivery or mail it to us that day (address upon request).

A reminder that a 10% surcharge will be added (less on deposits of $200 and more) to defray administrative, delivery and PayPal costs. Avoid charges by arranging a check or cash payment or using PayPal friend to friend to info@heartofthesun.com.

When you find an item you want to add, scroll over the default '0' and enter the quantity you would like. Again, we recommend you track your running total. We will double check that total and debit your PMA accordingly, if you are over your box value. Remember to click Place Order to complete the order.

When shopping at the Marketplace scroll and fill in the numbers. If you click the return button you send a false order. When you get to the bottom one click on submit will send your order to us. You'll receive a list of the entire market with your items filled in. As you go through the market note that a vendor whose name is struckthrough is not at market so all items are unavailable. When you find the vendor at market but an item struckthrough, that item is unavailable that week.

By order cutoff evening, you'll receive a pdf of your order. Please check it for accuracy and get back to us right away with errors. The next day, we place orders with our producers. Should any item become unavailable when we hear from the farmers, you can make another choice or drop it before we go to market. You won't be charged for out-of-stock items and we do revise this page every week, so such an event would be unexpected — likely "baker's choice" or "hens walk off the job or "hard freeze".

First, we always need you to sign in.
