Fresh Prep and Vancouver Farmers Markets partner to deliver local artisanal goods directly to your door
Fresh Prep to donate proceeds from sale of goods curated from Vancouver Farmers Markets back to the local non-profit from September 1-30.
Farmers markets across the province are currently experiencing decreased traffic and sales due to the ongoing pandemic; they are having to find creative ways to continue to serve shoppers and support their vendors.
With a shared love for local, Fresh Prep and Vancouver Farmers Markets are partnering to deliver a variety of Vancouver Farmers Markets goods from across B.C. in weekly Fresh Prep deliveries.
From September 3-30, 2020, proceeds from the first week of sales of goods curated from Vancouver Farmers Markets will be donated back to the organization, a community-based non-profit that supports over 280 BC farms and producers. * Participating vendors curated from Vancouver Farmers Markets include: Bee Kind, Susgrainable, Morgan’s Harbour, and Bowen Island Herb Salts.
“Vancouver Farmers Markets is thrilled to be partnering with Fresh Prep to deliver delicious local foods from a selection of our artisanal producers and are grateful for the opportunity to raise funds for our non-profit organization through their weekly meal kit delivery service,” said Laura Smit, Interim Executive Director of Vancouver Farmers Markets.
“We are proud to be a B.C.-based company that prioritizes sourcing from local suppliers who care deeply about the production process, and Vancouver Farmers Markets were top of mind,” shared Becky Brauer, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Fresh Prep. “By sourcing quality local products and delivering in reusable, recyclable and compostable packaging, we believe it’s possible to make convenient eating healthy and sustainable for the community we live in.”
Fresh Prep prioritizes working with local suppliers for its weekly meal kit subscription service whenever possible to support the local economy, reduce its carbon footprint, and to provide the freshest ingredients for its customers across B.C.
