Market Manager Testimonial

As the need to reduce our food miles and make suitable, local choices in our kitchens becomes more and more clear, smart solutions for closing those last few miles between eaters and local farmers are so important. By partnering with our amazing community of local farmers, TO Food Market is bringing farmers markets to your doorstep, allowing you to make the right choices that matter when it comes to your shopping basket.

Customer Testimonials

I just tried a small veggie and fruit box for $30 and found it to be a great addition to my kitchen. The variety and portions are perfect, and the fresh local flavours are unbeatable. This is truly a win-win-win model – for the customer, the producers, and the environment.

I recently ordered a veggie and fruit box. To my delight it was what I expected; an array of fresh edibles to create some wonderful healthy meals for my family. Thank you TO Market.

Overall I have to say your customer support has been incredible. We know there are lots of CSA options but won’t hesitate to sign up again next year and recommend to friends based on your service. It is so appreciated.
