Where to order
You can place your pick up order at the Brockville Farmers Market’s Open Food Network group.
The homepage will show you a list of the vendors available for that weeks pick up cycle.
How to order
To place an order you must first click on the vendor you would like to place the order with.
You can only select items from 1 vendor to add to your cart, once your items are selected you must then checkout and pay the vendor before moving onto the next vendor.
Add items to your cart by increasing the quantity of the item you want.
Once you’ve added all the items you want to your cart, click on the cart and then on “Checkout Now”.
This will take you to a section that will ask you if you want to login to your account or to login as a guest.
If you have an account, feel free to login, otherwise, select guest checkout or create an account.
You either pay online or in person when you pick up your order. It depends on what the vendor has selected as the payment option.
To pay online you can either use a credit/debit card or pay with an Interac eTransfer.
To pay in person, select the cash option. Some vendors also accept credit or debit when you pick up your order. Make sure to read the vendors instructions on their home page.
If you decide to use cash, it is recommended to place the exact amount of your order in an envelope to hand to the vendor. Vendors will not be handing you back change.
Once you have placed your order you will get an order number, make sure to keep this order number as you will need it to pick up your order.
How to pick up
You will get an email on the Friday before your pick up day that will tell you what time your pick up is scheduled for. Make sure you arrive on time to ensure there are no delays
Orders can be picked up from the vendors stall at the Fulford Academy on the Saturday of your order cycle between 9am and 12pm.
You should have all of your order numbers with you when you go to pick up.
Place a piece of paper on your windshield with your name in a large dark font, the vendors must be able to see your name in your dashboard.
When you arrive at the academy, you must wait for the go signal from a Farmers Market volunteer. You can get out of your vehicle to open the truck before you proceed through the market. Once you are in the market, stay in your vehicle until you leave.
