The 5 Shares Market is a community supported market engages the community in a different way. Each market day, members are invited to buy $5 shares which allow them up to ten points worth of goods. Food and other items are assigned a 0-3 point value. Items vary from week to week. We also offer a “Pay it Forward” option to donate shares for others. Our Five Shares Market is held on Wednesday at the University of Maryland Bio Park Community Engagement Center, Year-Round.
