Where to Buy Local Food During COVID-19

Edmonton needs a stronger, more robust local food system that we can all depend on: one that supports our neighbours and our local economy.

If COVID-19 has taught us anything about our food systems, it’s that they are extremely fragile. Although we’re not experiencing a food shortage in Edmonton, folks are still struggling to find basics to fill their cupboards, and some families are struggling to get good food on the table because they have lost their job or are isolating. So, I’ve compiled a list of local food producers who deliver right to your door or are selling fresh produce, meat, and eggs at our community farmers’ markets.

This is some of the most important work I am doing — supporting local business and creating good food networks. I hope this list will be a valuable resource for you as you look to fill your fridge and support our local business owners.

Primary Producers – Home Delivery

These producers prepare their goods for pickup at public locations or at-home delivery. This list does not include all the local producers but we will work to make it as full as possible in the coming days.
