Q: WHAT IS INCLUED IN MY MEMBERSHIP?
A: When you sign up for Salem Delights you will be subscribed to receive our weekly produce box – a mix of hand-picked fruits and vegetables as well as a few locally produced pantry items! Tell us how often you'd like delivery (once a week, every other week, or once a month) and customize the contents of your box to replace items you don't want, with ones you do! Skip delivery anytime! NO fees! NO weekly obligation!
Q: HOW IS SALEM DELIGHTS DIFFERENT THAN A CSA?
A: We deliver right to your door – no pick-up required! We also offer wider variety of items, greater flexibility to get the items you want and consistent year-round service that most traditional Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs can’t provide. Because we source from many different farms and small businesses, we can offer a wider variety of produce and other groceries. Unlike a CSA, we don’t bill you for a season up front, and you can skip a delivery or change your delivery frequency as needed. Plus, you can also customize each delivery to suit the needs of you and your family. We deliver YOUR box, YOUR way!
Q: DO I GET TO PICK THE CONTENTS OF MY OWN BOX?
A: We carefully select the content of our weekly produce box based on what is fresh, tasty, and in-season to make things easier for you! However, you can always login and customize your box to swap items you don't want for items you do!
Q: DO I HAVE TO GET THE STANDARD BOX? CAN I ORDER FROM THE STORE WITHOUT Getting a produce BOX?
A: You do NOT have to get our weekly Standard Box to receive a delivery! To shop our store and create a custom, out-of-the-box order for delivery, simply login to your account and delete the "Standard Box" from your Shopping Cart. For more detailed instructions on how to do that, click here to watch a short video tutorial. After you have deleted the box from your cart, click on the Shop button at the top right corner of the page and begin creating your custom order.

WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH MY EMPTY BOX?
