About us:

Eat Local Grey Bruce is a not-for-profit co-operative of producers and eaters. We operate an online farmers' market, aggregate food in our Owen Sound warehouse, and distribute to homes throughout Grey-Bruce.

Our operations are growing. This growth was steady in 2019 at 35%. Then it exploded in March 2020 with the emergence of COVID-19. Orders increased to almost 250% of our usual volume in a single week. By providing home delivery, we get food to people in a safe and efficient manner. Before COVID-19 we were delivering to 100+ households per week. Since mid-March 2020, we are now delivering to 200+ households, sustained at that level through stages of reopening. We continue to look at ways to continue to grow and mature as an organization.
