Uprooted’s Weekly Produce Subscription
Our produce is grown on farms around Nova Scotia. We aim to provide you with as much spray free and organic produce as possible, and will always let you know if something has been grown conventionally.
Large Subscription – $25/week (2 – 4 people)
10 weeks – $250
5 weeks – $125
Small Subscription – $15/week (1 – 2 people)
10 weeks – $150
5 weeks – $75
Each week you will receive a bag of seasonal veggies (and sometimes fruit!). While the quantity and variety will change over the season, we aim for our large share to feed between 2-4 people each week and our small share to feed between 1-2 people each week. Our weekly offering will include some of the items you would typically find at Uprooted, as well as specialty items that we don’t always get in store (including melons, patty pan squash, herbs and heirloom varieties)
Through the winter you will see root vegetables including beets, carrots, parsnips, turnip, potato, sweet potato as well as onions, mushrooms, kale, brussels sprouts, pea-shoots, micro-greens, leeks, frozen blueberries, cranberries, peas and tomatoes. Toward the end of winter we will start to have spinach, and hot house english cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers. In the spring and early summer you can expect lots of greens (salad mixes, spinach, arugula, beet greens), fiddleheads, radishes, peas, rhubarb, asparagus, spring garlic, spring onions, and spring herbs. Mid to late summer, we’ll start seeing broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, garlic, cucumbers, beans, beets and bunched carrots. Into the fall you can expect a variety of cooking greens such as kale and swiss chard, plus spaghetti squash, acorn squash, leeks, potatoes, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and apples.
Each week, we will update our blog with a recipe to help you get the best use out of your veggies!

What if I am away or unable to pick up my vegetables?
If you are away or have too many leftovers in your fridge that you don’t need your veggies (we don’t want you throwing food away!) just give us a call or send an email to [email protected] before 5pm on the Thursday before and we will pause your order for that week.

If you do not let us know ahead of time, and don’t show up for your veggies by 5pm on Monday they will be donated to local food bank.

That would be great! We can provide you with a gift certificate indicating that you have purchased a subscription for them, we ask that the recipient then contact us with their information and we will provide them with the details of the pickup.
Can I purchase the subscription week to week?
