Frequently Asked Questions:

To where do the DECA volunteers deliver?

The delivery zone is Greenwood to Victoria Park and O’Connor south to the Lake.

What if I’m outside of the delivery zone?

As health restrictions shift, the market delivery and pick options could change. In the meantime, some people are choosing to have their orders delivered to an in-zone friend’s porch for pick up.

Can I shop at all the vendors and check out at once?

No, unfortunately, the platform is set up so that we need to shop and check out from each vendor individually. This allows the farmers to control their inventory and get direct payment. Good news – all your orders will arrive together on Thursday.

What time on Thursdays will my orders arrive?

The team of DECA volunteers will work to sort and deliver all orders as soon as possible each Thursday afternoon. With no clear picture of the volume of orders we can’t accurately anticipate delivery times for the first weeks.

Will I be notified when my delivery is left at my door?

A DECA volunteer will knock on your door or ring your doorbell. If no one answers, they will text you to notify your farm-fresh food has arrived.

What if the delivery donation is outside of my budget/beyond my means?

We are happy to provide free delivery to anyone who is unable to make a donation.
