Getting To and From Market

Part of building a local food system is building new transportation networks. Ours incorporate active transport as much as possible. Bicycles are one of the most efficient machines, and we use them to get materials around the decentralized farm, produce to market, and even food from market to eaters with our bicycle delivery service. In 2010-2011 we delivered our own veggie baskets by bike. This year we offer the same service to members of other CSAs, as well as a new delivery service from Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market starting May 20th 2012. Who else delivers in Kingston by bike? No one. But, our friends at Wendys Mobile Market and Desert Lake Gardens also form the backbone of Kingston’s new food system. Limestone Creamery and Seed to Sausage are spokes in the food delivery wheel too with their vans.
