Beginning today, Toronto residents can now enjoy products from the St. Lawrence Market delivered directly to their homes.
St. Lawrence Market has partnered with Toronto-based online ordering and delivery service Inabuggy to offer customers additional ways to shop with the small business merchants of the Market. The partnership offers consumers access to the freshness and variety of produce, meats, fish, grains and bulk foods, baked goods, dairy products and specialty items that the Market is known for, in as little as one-hour delivery for residents who live within five kilometres of the Market.
Customers can conveniently shop from Market merchants, including more than 25 specialty merchants, all in one place through https://www.inabuggy.com/ and the Inabuggy app in minutes. Inabuggy’s personal shoppers will handpick and pack orders to ensure the quality and freshness of the St. Lawrence Market are delivered.
The Inabuggy partnership enables St. Lawrence Market to meet the shifting purchasing habits of customers and the increased demand for home delivery. As the City continues to work through the challenges of the COVID-19 health emergency, the Market is eager to offer this additional service that will allow customers to get the food that they need while staying at home more. The service also allows customers to support the small businesses of the Market during this challenging time.
Delivery is available Tuesday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. throughout downtown Toronto. Online prices are the same as in store and customers can shop with no minimum order size at up to 10 vendors per order with a pick, pack and delivery fee of $19.99 for the first five vendors, and an additional fee of $2.99 for each additional vendor.
Since launching in 2015, Inabuggy has allowed Canadians to shop for thousands of items online and via the Inabuggy app from their favourite grocery and specialty stores and have everything delivered to their doorsteps in as little as one hour. Inabuggy’s personal shoppers handpick, pack and deliver orders to ensure quality and freshness, and to fulfill special requests from customers about their items. Inabuggy delivers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec, with more plans to expand in the coming months.
