Veggie Boxes

How does my box support market customers?

Boxes allows us to sell more and to sell out - the more we sell, the lower we can make our prices.  Your box help us to do what we do best - running weekly, affordable, fresh food market to support healthy connected communities.

How is my box delivered?

Our Produce is Pedal Powered if you live in the inner metropolitan region! We recently received three lovely cargo trailers for the good people at Good Cycles. We are now looking for bicycle delivery volunteers to get this project cycling in top gear.

Please support us to extend our bicycle delivery service to all inner city markets and conduct a trial with Good Cycles using Electric Cargo Bikes.

Veggie Box Subscriptions

What is a subscription?

You are signing up for a subscription service. This means that once you fill in the sign up form below and receive confirmation from your local market manager, you will begin to receive a ‘seasonals and staples’ fruit and veg box each week until you inform us that you’d like to stop your service.

Pausing your box

We understand that there may be infrequent situations in which you’ll need to pause your service. If going away on holiday or needing to skip a week or two of deliveries, please let us know at least one week in advance and we’ll pause your deliveries and commence again on your indicated date.

Payment

For you first box you will be sent an invoice and asked to store your card details for future payments. You will then be direct debited weekly the day of your box delivery unless you have paused your box. Your card details will be securely stored via our Square account.

Reusable Bags

Your produce will come in a reusable jute bag with your name on it. You will need to return your empty bag each week when you collect the next one. If your bag is lost or not returned, you will be charged $7. If you forget to bring your bag, please email your market manager to let them know that you will bring it the following week.

Please Note

Due to pop-up and volunteer dependent nature of our market, there is the VERY unlikely possibility that Market Managers may not be able to fill all boxes every week. We pack boxes at the end of the market to ensure we sell-out, enabling us to buy in bulk to keep our prices low and avoid food waste. This means on VERY rare occasions it is possible that the market customers purchase produce before the manager realizes the volume of produce is getting low. If this occurs you will be fully refunded.f
