Starting this week, the Jersey City Food Co-Op is switching our store for most items to Farmigo, an online farmers’ market that connects workplaces, schools, apartment complexes and community centers directly to local farms, in order to continue to bring you the fresh produce, meat, eggs, seafood, and other artisanal food products that you love. Farmigo delivers your food to us pre-sorted and ready to go! As a member, you’ll have access to the store.
We’ve heard your feedback and we are excited to announce that our new partnership with Farmigo will address many of them.
You’ve told us that you want a better shopping experience. The Farmigo website offers beautiful pictures of the products and an intuitive interface. No more separate screens for suppliers!
You’ve told us that you want more consistent store hours. We are now open for ordering fresh food every weekend on Saturday and Sunday!
You’ve told us you’re tired of paying for goods only to have them not show up. With Farmigo, your credit card does not get charged until your order has been finalized with Farmigo.
So, how does it work?
You can log on and add food to your cart throughout the week. Check often, as new items are added constantly! Make sure you have all your items ordered by midnight Sunday, and your items will arrive pre-sorted at St. Paul’s church (440 Hoboken Avenue, Jersey City, NJ near Journal Square) on the following Wednesday. It’s that simple. You pay with a credit card when you check out, but your card is not charged until the order is finalized, so you’re only paying for what you’re getting.
And for those who love the wonderful products that come on Tuesday, don’t fret! We’re continuing to offer products from Frontier, our distributor that offers things like eco-friendly cleaning supplies, spices, oils and other non-food goods. That ordering process will remain the same. You’ll have from Thursday evening until the following Tuesday at midnight to order those products, and they’ll be delivered the following week. Any questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re so excited about this next chapter in the life of the Jersey City Food Coop and we’d love to have you join us. Worried because you haven’t been involved recently? Don’t be! We’d love to have you back! Still have questions? Email us at email@example.com and we’ll do our best to respond.
