This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A new food box program was launched by farmers for locals to order their products online during the holiday season.

In October, a website was created by the Peace Region Farmers Institute so farmers could market directly to their customers.

“Direct marketing to our customers was a great way to maximize the effect of customer dollars, and we wanted to come together to provide a greater way to support more farms with one easy hub,” the institute said in a release.

Orders for November can now be made and will be available for pick-up on November 26th at the FSJ Farmers Market Christmas Market in the Pomeroy Hotel.

November orders will be available for pick-up from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Whiskey Creek Ranch booth.

For December orders, online ordering will be open on December 5th at 5 p.m., and pick-up will be on December 17th. The pick-up location has yet to be announced.
