FRESH CITY TORONTO, ONTARIO Fresh City is a farm with a twist. Unlike most farms, they grow right in the big city of Toronto. The best part is they have just launched a recipe bag delivery program... brilliant idea! These curated organic meat, fish and veggie recipe bags come with all the fresh organic and seasonal ingredients you need plus step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the recipe. So, what makes this meal delivery service different from the rest? Fresh City grows their own produce and works with other local Ontario farmers to source what they don’t grow. It’s all organic and seasonal. Sounds great, but I needed to give it a test drive.... here goes: First you go to the website and order the recipe bag you want. Choose from meat, veggie, fish or, as I selected, a mix of all three. The site is easy to shop and you can see the recipes that will be featured in that week’s bag before you make your selection. The insulated recipe bag arrived at my front door as ordered. One large bag revealed 4 smaller insulated bags inside. Each was tagged with a recipe card, and inside, the fresh organic produce was clearly labelled and already in portion sizes. I was impressed. Really professionally done. The three recipes were simple, fresh and delicious. I found them creative and ready to serve in under 40 minutes. Having three meals planned ahead and the ingredients already portioned made my life so much easier - I loved it! If you live in the GTA, I highly recommend giving Fresh City a try. 54 WWW.EATINEATOUT.CA HOW IT WORKS 1 SELECT A RECIPE BAG Go to freshcityfarms.com and select a bag type, size and delivery schedule. • Eat with the seasons • Choose from veggie, meat or fish • For 2 or 4 people 2 ADD OTHER GROCERIES You can add other grocery items from their curated selection of local, organically made and specialty items. • Hundreds of products • No processed food 3 THEY DELIVER Your bag arrives at your home, office or pickup location on your delivery day each week or every other week. • No need to be at home to receive • Skip deliveries when you're away • Satisfaction guaranteed • Free delivery for pickup orders or orders over $75!
