Reminder: Deadline for orders is noon on Friday

We need your orders by Friday noon! ๐Ÿ—“๏ธ

Once we receive your orders by noon on Friday, we spend that Friday afternoon tallying and requesting the amount of produce we will need from our farms and producers. ๐Ÿ“‹

The requested items will arrive in our warehouse early the following week. We'll divvy it up and arrange to have your order(s) sent out to the respective pick-up locations and home delivery routes. ๐Ÿ“ฆ

***If you do not get your order in by Friday at noon, your items will not be requested from our farms that day. Orders received after noon will be lumped in with orders placed the following week... meaning you'll be waiting two weeks for your items.***

๐Ÿ’š helps farmers plan to ensure that they have enough produce to meet all their commitments.

๐Ÿ’š short farm-to-table duration retains produce nutrition

YYC Growers' food reaches consumers in a shorter time span compared to most store-bought produce, which might seem simple but actually has big impacts.

Some things to keep in mind when deciding between supermarket or local:
