Eat Local Grey Bruce is an online grocery store. Once you create an account you can add products to your cart 24 hours a day from Wednesdays 12pm to Mondays 12pm. You choose exactly what goes into your cart, and there is no obligation to order every week. Orders must be confirmed by Monday at noon to make that week’s delivery.
If you’re new to Eat Local, the first thing you need to do is create an account. All it takes is an email and password. After creating your account, you will need to choose your delivery location and fill out billing and contact information. The only other thing you need to fill is your cart! You can choose from over 300 products from your computer or mobile device.
Packing & Delivery
After the store closes on Monday, product lists are immediately sent out to producers. The producers pick and package their goods and deliver them to our warehouse on Tuesday. Deliveries are currently partitioned into a two day period, each with a morning and afternoon run. Orders for each route are packed at the warehouse and immediately sent on their way in our Eat Local van directly to your home or pick-up location. Pick-up locations are all equipped with freezers to keep frozen items frozen, and everything is packed into our Eat Local cooler bags to keep your groceries fresh. Empty cooler bags are collected by our driver on your next delivery.
We will soon be expanding our delivery reach to include Meaford, Thornbury and Collingwood. If we don’t deliver in your area, let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
We currently accept Visa and MasterCard payments through the online store or cheques on delivery made payable to Eat Local Grey Bruce. Payments are processed Tuesdays after all products have been delivered to the warehouse and accounted for. In the event that certain items are not delivered or unavailable, the item will be removed from the customers order prior to processing payments.
