How It Works

Eat Local Grey Bruce is a cooperative farmer’s market with two types of members: eaters and producers.

Eater members have access to our online store where producer members list the food they have available each week. Members can make orders through the online store and then Eat Local collects all the food from our producer members, packs it at our warehouse in Meaford, Ontario, and delivers the orders across Grey, Bruce, and parts of Simcoe county to drop off locations or directly to members’ doors.

Producer members are the core of the cooperative providing locally grown and produced foods and specialty products, all available for purchase in the Eat Local Grey Bruce online store.

Becoming a Member

Becoming an ELGB eater member is easy: you sign up online through our web store for $40/year and that allows you to make weekly orders. That’s it!

If you’re interested in becoming a producer member with ELGB, you can review our Producer and Product Policies here and send an application when you’re ready to apply.

The ELGB Weekly Schedule

Because orders are made up of fresh food from the farm, Eat Local Grey Bruce uses a “windowed” ordering timeline where members can order for the upcoming delivery dates.

Here’s what the weeks’ schedule looks like:

Friday-Sunday: online orders are accepted through the web store
food is collected from producers based on the orders
orders are packed at the warehouse
orders are delivered to pick up location or directly to members

And then we start all over again!
