FreshSpoke provides grocery delivery to access food safely in Ontario as provincial state of emergency orders to stay at home begin. The online marketplace enables consumers in Simcoe County, Muskoka District and York Region, Peel Region and Toronto to conveniently access local food. FreshSpoke distributes food from over 65 local food producers and processors. Residents can visit FreshSpoke’s website or mobile app to order.

“With Ontarians in lockdown once again we expect another surge in online grocery shopping,” states FreshSpoke CEO Marcia Woods. “FreshSpoke is ready to meet the demand with a year-round assortment of fresh, quality foods from local farms, growers and artisans, all delivered to the door or curbside.”

FreshSpoke maintains contract tracing, temperature checks and sanitization at the Barrie facility. All drivers and associates are masked and will adhere to a strict no-contact routine. Excluding essential in-person duties, FreshSpoke’s employees are working from home. The returnable totes are thoroughly washed and sterilized between each use. Alternatively, residential buyers can opt for paper bags at checkout.

Curbside service will remain available at FreshSpoke’s distribution centre in Barrie, Ont. from Tuesday to Saturday each week. Customers who still wish to pick up their groceries are asked to wear masks if their window is down and prepare their vehicle to receive their order.

FreshSpoke offers a wide array of unique, fresh and local foods year-round, including items in produce, proteins, bakery, quick meals, dairy, grocery and more.
