S & I just signed up for this amazing all-organic produce delivery service by Fresh City Farms and we love it!
So let me just start by saying that me and S definitely don’t consider ourselves all-organic, only-organic, 24/7, day and night people. Where we can, we will shop and buy organic, and it isn’t for any reason other than the health benefits that eating organic brings to our bodies, if you’re wanting to try eating organic and fresh produce have a look around at various fresh produce providers, such as Hitchcock Farms and the many others that are starting to grow fresh. We are both very health conscious people, and when it comes to buying fresh produce, we’re very cognizant of the fact that it’s not because the fruits and vegetables are big and shiny that they’re necessarily “better for us”. So historically, when we shopped for produce, we would buy organic where reasonable. That was until I was referred to Fresh City Farms, who’s motto is “local + organic groceries”!
I think what we love most about Fresh City Farms is how convenient the service is.
They let you either build your own shopping bag, or if you become overwhelmed by choice like I do, they have pre-made grocery bags ready to go, with options that alternate weekly. S and I may only be two people, but we opted for the three-four servings sized bag. We’re both grown men and we both consume a fair amount of fruits and vegetables throughout the week. Fresh City Farms is great for food inspiration too, as they have Recipe Bag options that include full meal recipes and all the necessary ingredients for meal prepping. That is an awesome option for anyone who is like me, who comes home after work during the week and gets frustrated with deciding WHAT to make! That usually takes up more time than the actual cooking and prepping of the meal LOL!
Another thing I love about Fresh City Farms, is the substitution feature. I have always hated eggplants, my whole life, so why one earth would I opt into a service that would deliver eggplant straight to my door? No thank you lol! But Fresh City Farms lets you enter in substitutions for you to customize your weekly grocery bag to never include options you dislike. The service is honestly just so great and so convenient. It saves us from having to lug groceries back to our condo (the perks of downtown Toronto living), and it saves us from having to do a grocery run on the cold winter days. Now, we have weekly fresh, organic produce sent straight to our door on a consistent. With local ingredients and organic produce that’s always in season, I strongly urge all my friends to sign up for Fresh City Farms!
Stay True. Stay Humble. Stay Inspired.
