In Season



We deliver bushels and half-bushels of locally-grown produce for home preserving in Toronto. Like us for recipes and updates - our season starts May 24th.

In Season partners with local farmers to deliver produce by-the-bushel, in season for home canning and preserving. We operate part-time out of the High Park area, and love to eat, preserve, and share local foods. Every week we feature the best of what's in season, available for purchase online by end-of-day Thursday. On Saturday mornings, we fire up the In-Season-mobile to deliver everyone's orders in the early a.m. We deliver across the GTA.
