Late Summer Box - August 3rd to September 7th, 2022
The Late Summer Box Subscription is an 6-week produce box subscription that starts Wednesday August 3rd and goes until Wednesday, September 7th, 2022. Each box will include 6-7 local/seasonal items (ex. tomatoes, peaches, berries, herbs, greens, beans, root vegetables, sweet corn, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, etc.). Boxes will contain a mix of conventional and organic/ecological produce.
The Late Summer Box will not provide you with enough produce for the entire week, but it will give you a seasonal sampling of what's available locally! It's geared toward 1-2 person households or small families.
Farms that we source produce include:
- Bowman's Organics (Wallenstein, ON)
- Loco Fields (Stratford, ON)
- Elmira's Own Tomatoes (Elmira, ON)
- Fertile Ground Farm (St. Agatha, ON)
- Romagnoli Farms (Beamsville, ON)
- Maple Crisp Orchards (Elmira ON)
- Little Fields (Bright, ON)
- We also buy from the Elmira Produce Auction, a cooperative of farmers selling locally grown wholesale produce.

Boxes will be available for pick up at the store (18 Ontario Street North) on Wednesdays between 2pm and 6pm.
1) What do I need to do when I pick up my box?
- Arrive at the store between 2pm and 6pm on your pick up day
- Drop your name with a Legacy Greens staff member and we'll check you off the list.
- Bring a reusable bag. If you forget, we'll have some boxes on hand.
2) What if I’m away on a pick-up day?
- You have a couple options:
- Give your box to a friend. No need to notify us, your friend can drop your name when they pick up.
- If you notify us a week in advance, we will arrange to have a “doubled-up” box the week before or the week after you are away. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please note that we do appreciate consistency as it's easier to manage for us, but we are happy to accommodate the occasional request.
3) I'm driving, any advice on parking?
- Free 30 minute parking on Ontario Street
- Free 2 hour street parking on King Street
- Often the parking across the street at Scotia Bank is free when the gates are up (after 5pm). Otherwise, that parking is for Scotia Bank customers only.
- City Parkade Lots are $3.20 for 2 hours. The closest one is on Duke Street (Between Ontario and Queen)
