We all want fresh produce straight from the farm, but many of us don’t have time to get out to our local farmers’ markets. This is where FoodStory comes in. The organization connects buyers with Toronto farmers markets by allowing them to order food online from a select group of Toronto farmers’ markets. FoodStory opened its virtual doors on June 2, 2013 allowing for online delivery.
The way it works is you go to the FoodStory website, see what’s available that week at the participating farmers’ markets and place a customized (minimum $25) order. You will receive your order direct from the farmer’s market the same day. Currently, only fruits and vegetables may be ordered online; however, meat and dairy will be available on the website in the next few weeks.You can put a hold on weeks you don’t want food. There is no limit to how many holds you can have throughout a season.
Participating farmers markets in Toronto include Leslieville Farmers’ Market, Regent Park Farmers’ Market and SickKids Farmers’ Market. Other local farmers markets are expected to come on board shortly.
The delivery charge is usually $10; however, to receive your first order free, enter the Promo Code Torontonicity when you place your order.
