The dsu market food box

The DSU Market offers a pre-ordered food box program, where customers can order their box by 10am on Thursday for the following Tuesday. The box features approximately 13-16 pounds of seasonal produce, each week showcasing a different mix of beautiful, local produce. The boxes are available for pick-up at the Studley Campus Student Union Building on Tuesdays between 10:30AM - 5:00PM or on Wednesdays at the Sexton Campus between 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM. 

The $20 box for many of our customers is the perfect amount to split between 2/3 people who cook a couple times a week or for 1 person who is a vegetarian or vegan. The $12 box is designed for 1 person who cooks a couple times a week.  

Arrangements for Food Boxes can be made for recurring weekly or bi-weekly orderers, or they can be ordered on a week-by-week basis.

frequently asked questions

What if it's too much food for me to eat in one week?

The DSU Market Food Box program runs two sizes - Regular Food Box ($20) or the Food Box Mini ($12). As a subscriber, you are not locked in for a weekly purchase. You may decide to purchase weekly, biweekly or monthly. If you find that the box you purchased has too much food, share it with your friends! 

Is it the same produce in Food Box each week? 

Each week features a different mix of fresh, seasonal produce. We aim to always provide a fruit, a leafy green and a staple of some sort, for example onion, potato or/and carrots. 

Can I specify what I want in my Food Box? 

The contents of the Food Box is pre-set, and due to the large number of orders, we can't accommodate custom orders. However, we are willing to accommodate substitutions based on customer allergies! Just let us know in advance and the substitution will be applied to all your orders.

What happens if I forgot to pick up my Food Box?

We will send you an email on Tuesday after close, letting you know that you have until Noon on Wednesday to pick up your box. If you receive this email, but cannot make it to the stand before Noon on Wednesday, please reply letting us know why and we will work out an alternative plan to get you your Food Box. Except in extenuating circumstances, we cannot refund or transfer orders if you do not get back to us ASAP with regards to your forgotten box. We have extremely limited fridge space, and therefore aim to have all the boxes picked up on Tuesday or Wednesday Morning at the latest (if you forgot your box).
