FROM farm to fork: why buy local?
1. Local looks and tastes better.
2. Buying local produce helps reduce the carbon footprint of long-distance food transportation. We are proud to offer produce from local farms within 100 km of our warehouse.
By buying locally grown products, we are creating a local and sustainable marketplace in our community. FreshPoint is an advocate sponsor of our local communities and farms. Our commitment to buying local, more sustainable products has always been about doing the right thing for the environment and the right thing for farmers and our communities. We understand that buying local produce strengthens our regional economies, helps support family farms, and provides delicious fresh from the fields foods to our customers.
Below is a chart of local produce availability at FreshPoint Vancouver. Please note that this is only a general guide. Although many other local produce are available in BC, FreshPoint may not carry the product. Product availability is also subject to weather conditions. Lighter shades denotes limited availability.
