Local Organic Produce Delivery in Vancouver

Support local farms

Buying local food keeps local farms healthy and creates local jobs at farms and in local food processing and distribution systems.

Boosts local economy

Food dollars spent at local farms and food producers stay in the local economy, creating more jobs at other local businesses.

Less travel

Local food travels much less distance to market than typical fresh or processed grocery store foods, therefore using less fuel and generating fewer greenhouse gases.

Less waste

Because of the shorter distribution chains for local foods, less food is wasted in distribution, warehousing and merchandising.

More freshness

Local food is fresher, healthier and tastes better, because it spends less time in transit from farm to plate, and therefore, loses fewer nutrients and incurs less spoilage.

New and better flavours

When you commit to buy more local food, you’ll discover interesting new foods, tasty new ways to prepare meals and a new appreciation of the pleasure of each season’s foods.

Good for the soil

Local food encourages diversification of local agriculture, which reduces the reliance on monoculture—single crops grown over a wide area to the detriment of soils.

Builds more connected communities

Local foods create more vibrant communities by connecting people with the farmers and food producers who bring them healthy local foods. As customers of CSAs and farmers markets have discovered, they are great places to meet and connect with friends as well as farmers.
