Fresh City Farms

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

The largest city farm in Canada and online grocer, Fresh City Farms, is now introducing an exciting initiative in delivering recipe bags that include all of the ingredients and instructions to prepare an easy and nutritious meal.  Fresh City recently acquired the Toronto-based recipe kit company, Fresh Canteen, and are very excited to take on the existing customers and provide them with organic/local produce, meats and fish.

Customers have the option of choosing between vegetarian, fish and organic-based meat meals or produce bags (filled with organic fruits/veggies). The recipe bags start at $7.75/portion, feed up to four people and can include anywhere from two to five meals per week.  You can sign up for weekly or bi-weekly deliveries and choose your home or office for delivery or pick up the bags at one of the dozen pick-up hubs. Besides the very convenient recipe and produce bags, customers can purchase over 800 grocery items from Fresh City’s online market.

Fresh City Farms currently delivers to Toronto, North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Mississauga and parts of Markham and Vaughan with a delivery fee of $3.50 or free on orders over $75. 

I recently tried out three recipe bags from Fresh City Farms and absolutely loved the convenience of having all of the ingredients already portioned out.  Having everything already prepared saved me a ton of time and I barely had any clean-up afterwards.  The meals came in 100% biodegradable packaging and all of the meats and fish were in insulted packages. I cooked all three meals within a week and had plenty of leftovers each time.  The helpful recipe cards attached to each bag were easy to follow even for those who are new to cooking.

The three meals I made were:

Roasted Carrot Lasagna with Kale, Zucchini and Ricotta

Teriyaki Salmon with Shiitake Mushrooms and Cabbage

Moroccan Chicken Thighs with Raisin and Sun-dried Tomato Quinoa

My favourite recipe was the Teriyaki Salmon.  The recipe provided two generous fillets of wild BC caught salmon that cooked perfectly in the flavourful marinade. The vegetable lasagna was probably my least favourite as I found that there wasn’t enough sauce for this dish.  The Moroccan Chicken was absolutely delicious as the spices really spruced up the chicken thighs. I really enjoyed cooking with all organic ingredients and it made me appreciate what I was eating even more.
