What we do

Buying local food can be hard for a busy family.

To be honest, the big box stores make it too easy to choose food from far away while you are picking up the toilet paper on sale.

What if the local food came to you?

We deliver locally produced groceries to your home or workplace 6-days a week. Select from over 1000 local products and a range of delivery options like before and after work or on the weekend.

Whether it’s grass-fed steak, free range chickens and their eggs, produce from year-round greenhouses, fresh bread, locally roasted coffee, ready-to eat items, craft beers or amazing local sweets and treats – we want to make it easier to buy, and most importantly, EAT nutritious and delicious local food. We are passionate about helping to grow the variety and availability of local food.

And if someone out there is making TP locally, let us know – we’ll carry that, too.

Why we do it

The goal of Local & Fresh is to grow the size and sustainability of the local food network by making it easier for consumers to choose local food options.

At the same time we seek to help producers grow by increasing the size and access to the local food market as well as the efficiency of the local food distribution system.

When you buy local, you’re supporting your friends, your neighbours, and people who live where you live.

Quality. Sustainability.
