Very exciting news – we are now selling Local Bounty Bags! These bags will be available each Wednesday, and will be filled to the brim with a colourful variety of fresh and local produce items! Let us make shopping local even easier for you, and perhaps you can expand your horizons with local food at the same time!
There are two options: the first is for 3-4 people at $34.99 (over a $50 retail value), and the second is for 1-2 people at $19.99 (over a $25 retail value). The offerings will be different each week, but to give you a sneak peek, the first large bag will include all of the following: cauliflower, celery, broccoli, squash, onions, cucumber, tomatoes, potatoes (regular, fingerling, and sweet), heirloom carrots, beets, kale, heirloom grape tomatoes, garlic, lettuce, peppers, peaches, apples, and pears – that’s a LOT of local food! (Also, if you have any allergies or dietary needs, we’re happy to make 1-2 substitutions per bag.)
Place your order by Sunday, and pop in on Wednesday to pick up your Local Bounty Bag, packed neatly inside one of our signature tote bags! There is a $5 charge for the Mustard Seed tote bag (we’ve heard many people say these are the best grocery bags they’ve ever used!), but if you’d like to avoid that cost, you can bring your own Mustard Seed bag and do a swap, or we can provide a box, if that’s easiest. The Local Bounty Bags are available beyond Wednesday, but will be in their best shape that day, so it’s our preferred pick-up day.
How to Order: We’ll aim to have a few extras available, but your best bet is to send your order request to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday each week to have your bag ready for pick-up (with the subject line: “Bounty Bag Request”).
Lastly, if you’re on Instagram or Twitter, feel free to use the hashtag #localbountybag to show us how you’re using your produce items! With all the variety you’ll receive in these bags, the options are truly endless, and sharing what you create can inspire others with new and exciting ways to incorporate local food into their daily meals!
