Are you interested in buying 'CERTIFIED’ organically
grown produce? Byward Fruit Market (BFM) has successfully formed
a thriving ‘Organics’ Club'! - Join The Club!
About Our OrganicsClub
This unique and progressive approach to the buying and distribution
of organic produce is dedicated to supplying members with the freshest,
highest quality and least expensive ‘certified’ organic
produce on a weekly basis.
Due to the ‘Club’ concept, BFM does not stock these
organic products on its shelves. As a consequence BFM requires a
low markup! We make produce available to members the same day it
arrives from the supplier. This way, members will obtain the freshest
produce at the lowest prices possible.
Byward Fruit supplies members with a weekly ‘basic basket’
which contains a selection of nutritionally coordinated and complimentary
produce. We vary the selection every week and give you seasonal
As we are working with the largest supplier of ‘certified’
organic produce in Canada (ProOrganics), we can assure you of the
largest and best selection of fresh, ‘certified’ organic
produce available anywhere.
The Club concept is meant to supply members with basic organic produce
only, not all of your food requirements. However, as the Club grows
in size and buying power, we will offer members additional selections
of more exotic fruit and vegetables.
As an added bonus we have already made arrangements with Saslove’s
Meats to make ‘certified’ organic meat products and
‘Bridgehead’ to make‘certified’ organic
coffees and teas available to Club members. You will be able to
receive an organic meat order as well as coffee and or teas, with
your weekly basket!
How the Club Works:
- Members are able to choose a ‘basic basket’ either
of fruit, vegetables or any combination of both.
- Members may select a $20 ‘basic basket’, or a larger
$30 or $40 basket, delivered weekly. Special arrangement can be
made for additional produce, if required. (For example, if you
‘juice’ and require large quantities of carrots lets
say, then we can purchase a 50lb bag of carrots for you and then
send you any quantitiy you require weekly, storing the balance
in our coolers.)
- Members must commit to a minimum of 4 baskets to qualify for
the club. Members are required to pay for the 4 baskets in advance.
- After the initial 4week period, members have the option to renew
for each additional month under the same conditions.
- Members have the right to cancel their membership with 2 weeks
notice. Any balance of funds will be refunded to the departing
members at that time.
- Members may submit a preference list of acceptable and in particular
unacceptable produce in advance of their first delivery. BFM diligently
honours the unacceptable list of each member and endevours to
order customer preferences where specified.
- Baskets are made available either to be picked up or delivered
(for an additional fee) starting on Thusday after 2 PM. each week.
- Pickup can be suspended for any given period of time by making
arrangements with BFM, preferably one week in advance but no later
than Monday evening of the cancelation week.
- Byward Fruit agrees to choose the weekly selection of only ‘certified’organic
fruit and vegetables from a credible and verifiable source of
organic produce. Certification designations will be furnished
- BFM will endevour to supply members with the freshest and highest
quality produce available. BFM reserves the right not to ship
any produce that does not meet its standards. Any such shortfall
will be made up in the subsequent week.
- In the event that the weekly selection contains produce that
is ‘unacceptable’ to certain members, BFM will make
up the shortfall by increasing quantities of other acceptable
produce or increase produce in the next weekly delivery.
- If produce is otherwise unacceptable, in particular for reasons
of quality, members must inform BFM within 24 hours of receipt
of basket to obtain a credit. Such shortfalls will be made up
in subsequent deliveries.
- Delivery service is available in the Ottawa-Hull area only,
for an additional fee of $5-7 per week depending on location.
Delivery is currently provided on Thursday between 1- 4 P.M.,
Thusday evenings between 6-9 P.M.,and Friday mornings only.
Thank you for your interest and patronage. Your comments and suggestions
are kindly requested.
