How to Order Your Farm Fresh Box from The Local
Orders and payment are due 3 days prior to delivery date. The deadline for ordering is Monday at noon.
When you order, you get to choose whether you would like to have your box delivered or pick it up yourself. You can order just one box to try it out or opt for weekly, bi-monthly, monthly intervals. Pre-paying for multiple orders entitles you to a discount – 5% off if you pre-pay for 5 boxes or 10% off if you pre-pay for 10 boxes (available/delivered at the interval of your choosing).
Can I have my box delivered?
Yes, you can have your box delivered right to your doorstep. There is an option to leave special instructions for us, in case you would like your box delivered to your porch or placed just inside a door, left at the side. If you live in an apartment, do we need an access code? Let us know, we will try to accommodate everyone.
When do I pick-up my box?
Pick-up your box Thursdays between 12-5pm
Can I make a special request for specific produce in my box?
At this point we cannot accommodate special requests of box content. When ordering, we focus on what is in season and is available closest to home.
What does a box cost?
Order 1 box: $25.00
Pre-pay for 5 boxes: $118.75 (5% discount)
Pre-pay for 10 boxes: $225.00 (10% discount)
What methods of payment do you accept?
PayPal – this is the preferred option as it allows you to pay with your PayPal account OR if you don’t have an account, PayPal allows you to pay via credit card or directly from your bank account.
“At the Door” – if you check this option, please ensure that CASH payment is remitted at The Local Community Food Centre by 12 noon on the Monday prior to delivery.
How do I get my box?
You have the option to have your box delivered in Stratford (home or work) or pick up at The Local Community Food Centre on Thursdays between 3pm and 5pm.
We are going to start off choosing all of the items, ensuring there is a variety of produce in each box, and each week will be slightly different. We are hoping this will encourage people to try new things and realize how tasty all vegetables really are.
Do I have to get a box every week?
No. You can order individual boxes whenever and as often as you like. Even if you pre-pay for 5 or 10 boxes, you can choose the frequency with which you receive them – weekly, every other week, or monthly.
