Have you tried one of our 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!

Also, please note:
We’ve changed things around in the Bundle Bag according to the feedback we’ve received from customers. Check out the list below, and add it on to your Bounty Bag order for only $28.99!
As the days get colder, it becomes harder to find variety within local produce. While these bags will continue to have a local focus, we will be incorporating a few imported items (so you don’t end up going home with bag full of root vegetables!). Our desire is that the bags remain interesting and exciting, while still focusing on local. You will see things like avocado and grapefruit on the list this week, so please know that when we bring in items like these (that can’t be local), the next priority is that they are organic. Let us know if you have any questions about this – we’re happy to dig into it more as a community that supports local!
Lastly, due to a few variables, we cannot guarantee every item listed below. While we will do our absolute best to make sure the items promoted are included, there may occasionally be substitutions. When necessary, we’ll include a different item of equal value, or additional amounts of something already listed. Thanks in advance for your understanding!

Place your order by Monday at noon, and pop in the following 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. (You’ll be asked to choose between box and bag on the order form.)
