Here is a list of Farms offering online deliveries in Montreal and surrounding areas: 

1. Fermes Valens

Fermes Valens is a farm that started in 1965 and was passed down from generation to generation. They really pride themselves on living a healthy lifestyle which is reflective of the goods they sell. The farm produces a lot of biological and gluten-free options from, grass-fed meats, free-range chicken eggs and gluten-free pasta for example. They have a wide selection of different foods and also has convenient ready to eat options but unfortunately, they do not have fresh fruit or vegetable available at this time.

2. Potager Mont-Rouge

Potager Mont-Rouge is a family-run farm that really focuses on what is currently in season so you can get the freshest and tastiest produce. However, the opposite of Fermes Valens, Potager-Mount Rouge has a great selection of fresh fruits and vegetables but does not have a meat selection. They do however have a great weekly selection in which some specified items go on sale and would be wise to take advantage of this when possible. They also offer a weekly themed basket of fruits and vegetables which can also be an interesting choice! Mont-Rouge, unfortunately, does not deliver to Montreal so be wary.

3. Le Panier Bleu

To put it simply Le Panier Blue is an initiative from the Quebec government to get us to buy our products locally. Le Panier Bleu actually doesn’t sell anything specific (right now) rather they are a medium in which you can look up what you are looking for and will point you to multiple Quebecois online stores to purchase from. This way, it creates a hub of completely local businesses that when you purchase something you can be sure your money goes to our local entrepreneurs. This list also includes multiple farmers around the region which by putting your address in, you can see the different farms that can deliver to you. Le Panier Bleu really stresses the importance of preemptively reinvesting into our economy to help Quebec’s people and economy get through this, which we think is a great idea. The site is still in its early phases as it plans to expand to be able to directly buy from the site itself so make sure to stay updated, we know we will!

4. Jardin Des Anges

  1. Jardin des Anges is another farm focused on selling and providing organic produce. What is particularly awesome about the farm is that they not only sell their own produce but help support smaller local farmers by selling their farm’s specialties on their site. They also have some different items week per week depending on what’s in season. This farm has the widest variety of products available compared to the rest of the farms on our list. It provides a healthy choice of vegetables, meats, fruits and also has other complimentary products. The site itself is easily navigatable and what we enjoy is that there are filters in which you can easily identify if a product is from their garden, from Quebec, imported or a  Canadian product so you always know where your money is going.

The farm delivers to Montreal and its surrounding areas but be sure to check to see if they can deliver to your specified address first!
