VEGETABLE SUBSCRIPTIONS 2019

What are vegetable subcriptions?

Our vegetable subscription offers you a weekly supply to organically grown produce by farmers you know.  You can customize each week to make sure you're getting the vegetables suited to your needs. The subscription period runs from mid June to the last week of October. 

pick up

The distribution model for 2019 will be pick-up with a set day and time window. The format will be free-choice with a limit on certain vegetables depending on availability.

The goal is to also make interactions more personal. We need more face-to-face connections! The pick-up day will be on Sundays and the location in Toronto will be decided so that it is the most accessible to everyone. We are looking at locations west of Spadina that are reasonably close to the Bloor-Danforth Subway Line.

The Evergreen Brickworks Farmers’ Market will be an option every Saturday from 8am - 1pm.

cost 

We offer a sliding scale to minimize finacial barriers to healthy locally grown food.  Subscribers can choose the price point that reflects their ability to pay and the cost is paid upfront or in installments.

Those who can afford more help to cover the difference for those who can't. *We believe in the power of food when partaken in community*

payment breakdown:

The cost is $20-$35 per week and the subscription runs for 20 Weeks.

A subscription for 2019: = $400-700

We encourage folks to share subscriptions with friends and family with alternating pick-up weeks if a full weekly share is too much food.
