Free Pickup Points
Like everyone, we have had to adapt the way we do things as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Perhaps our greatest challenge is that we are unable to attend farmers' markets, as these events are limited to food vendors only at this time.
So, in order to ensure our faithful customers are able to stock up with their favourite Om goodies, we have partnered with friends in several locations to offer free pickup. Here are your options...
1. Kelowna Mini-Market
The regular market doesn't start until May, but there is a mini version of the Kelowna Farmers' Market operating every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Parkinson Recreation Centre parking lot. The market is limited to just 15 vendors, and we are fortunate to have Lisa Dueck of Sterling Springs Chicken serving as our collection liaison there. When you place an order of any size, simply choose 'Free Kelowna Pickup' from the shipping options and we will arrange to have your order ready for collection on the next Saturday. There is a cut-off time of 6 p.m. every Thursday, otherwise your order will be sent the following week.
2. Green Croft Gardens in Grindrod
The fabulous Gaby and Wolf Wesle of Green Croft Gardens have a weekly farm gate sale every Thursday from noon to 6 p.m.
Similar to Kelowna, you can select 'Free Grindrod Pickup' under the shipping options and we will arrange for your order to be there when they open. The cut-off time for orders will be 6 p.m. every Tuesday.
3. Free Vernon Delivery on orders over $50
When you place an online order of $50 or more, we will deliver it to your doorstep for free. When you go to checkout, choose 'Free Vernon Delivery' and we will arrange to drop off your order once it has been processed. Note, the standard $20 shipping rate applies to orders under $50.
4. The Omstead Farm in Armstrong
When you place an online order of any size, you can arrange to pick it up from our farm.
