The BrightSide Buyers Club helps build connections among communities. It consists of faculty, staff, students, and friends of the University of St. Thomas. Club members receive “excess” produce from BrightSide delivery runs in $3, $5, or $10 shares. Buyers Club members receive weekly produce at a fraction of grocery store prices while simultaneously help grow and advance the mission of BrightSide! Want to join? It's easy as 1, 2, 3!

We have set up a PayPal system where you can put a down payment on many weeks worth of membership in one easy transaction to avoid excessive fees. We ask that, in order to keep fees as low as possible, you make a payment of at least $20. Once you put money into your account, we will subtract your subscription fee from your account every week. We will notify you when your funds get low; just come back to our site and add funds again using the link below.

Now that you've put funds in your account, we'd like to get to know a bit more about you! Click the link below to complete the signup process.

Each Monday, we deliver your produce to four convenient locations at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses. All you need to do is stop by the pick-up location, cross your name off our list, and you're set!

St. Paul Pick-up locations are:

  • John-Roach Center (JRC) Room 129 (Greenhouse entrance near Auditorium) 
  • Outside of room 256 in the Owens Science Center (OWS)

Minneapolis Pick-up locations are:

  • ​Schulze Hall, outside of the auditorium
  • School of Law, 4th floor break room

Each Monday, your produce will be ready for pick-up anytime after 12:00 noon on the St. Paul campus or after 2pm on the Minneapolis campus.
