FAQs

What is the Panier du Marché Verdunois /Verdun Market Basket?

Our goal is to make fruits and veggies more accessible for Montrealers. Through offering different sized baskets of nutritious fruits and veggies at affordable prices, we save you time and money feeding yourself or your family. We are a not-for-profit project running out of a not-for-profit community centre, BGC Dawson in Verdun. 

How does it work?

We cut out the retailer and purchase directly from a wholesaler who specialises in locally grown (when in season) produce. Purchasing in bulk from a wholesaler allows us to offer prices that are cheaper than typical retailers. We charge a 10% markup to cover our operating costs, with no-profit margin. Produce markups in retail average between 50-75%.  By pooling our resources and purchasing directly from the wholesaler, we leverage our group purchasing power. Our food boxes contain the maximum produce possible for the price.

What will you find in your  Panier du Marché Verdunois?

The selection of fruits and veggies will vary week to week according to availability and wholesale costs. One way we keep our prices low is by picking the produce for you. We cannot accommodate special requests of box content, (unless you indicate a specific allergy). Some factors that influence our selection are: Season / Nutrition / local / Affordability.
