COVID-19 Store and Market Update

The Grainery Store on Agricola Street and the Saturday market stall at the Halifax Brewery Market remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our members talk often about the things we can still do to provide reasonably-priced local and organic food to our members and the general public. This is an unprecedented time and many organizations are still figuring out how to navigate. We are a volunteer-run food coop and the health of our volunteers and customers is our highest priority. Our volunteers are working as hard as they can to navigate the extra work that comes from the changes, but please expect delays in orders, email responses, and social media message responses.

We are still continuing our pre-order program where you can pre-order a bulk product and get it in a few weeks once we receive it from our suppliers. For more information on how our pre-orders work, check out our Pre-Order Catalogue and our new Pre-Order FAQs. We are also still a pick up location for the Hutten CSA. For the Hutten CSA pickup, please call or stop by the store on the regular pickup day and the volunteer will let you in for pickup.

The Saturday Farmer’s Market is closed, but the Halifax Brewery Market team is running a wonderful store called Neighbourhood Goods, where you can shop in person and pick up many of our amazing products the same day, or online and pick up the same week. Neighbourhood Goods offers products from many participating Saturday Market vendors so you can support the other wonderful local businesses we shared our Saturdays with.

As always, look out for your friends, family, and neighbours. Support small and local businesses. Be kind to and patient with each other.
