Winter Fresh Box
Would you like to receive a regular supply of locally-grown quality fruit and vegetables this winter?
Vancouver Farmers Markets Winter Fresh Box features BC grown produce from multiple farms—allowing you maximum diversity with each instalment.
What’s in the Winter Fresh Box?
With delivery every other week, the Fresh Box provides you with seasonal fruit and veggies over the winter months. With each Fresh Box you’ll receive 7-9 different produce items or value-added items (juiced, dried, frozen) and a description of your box contents along with the farmers they come from, farmer highlights and recipes. A Facebook group will be used to keep members posted about updates and to allow members to share tips and recipes.
