APRIL 27, 2023 | BOISE, ID – The month of May this year marks the one-year anniversary of Boise-born, Boise-based, and woman-owned FarmDeliver, an online market where customers across the Boise-metro area can order grocery delivery from local farms all year-round.
The core values of FarmDeliver are accessibility, transparency and local food ownership.
Accessibility means keeping locally grown food affordable, reliable and easy to get for the average Boise-area consumer. Because of FarmDeliver’s unique pricing model, farmers earn retail price on all their sales, and customers pay less than a grocery store markup.
Transparency means that every product on the site is traceable, and every farm can be contacted directly by the customer through their farmer profile. FarmDeliver provides an extreme level of transparency not offered by most other food and grocery subscription services like Butcher Box.
Local food ownership means that the FarmDeliver market hosts only farmers in or around the Treasure Valley, or food producers who are locally based and use Idaho-sourced ingredients. The company has challenged themselves to search out and support otherwise overlooked producers in order to meet their self-imposed requirement of local-only, even through the winter. (Read the FarmJournal article on the FarmDeliver website for more information about our winter farmers.)
FarmDeliver seeks to streamline and simplify the buying experience for locally produced foods. Customers are not required to create any accounts, pay any memberships or buy any subscriptions. There is also no minimum order requirement, and delivery costs a flat fee of $7.99 across Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Kuna, Eagle, and Hidden Springs.
Customers can shop products from multiple farms, but all in one place and with one single transaction. Rather than traveling to multiple pickup sites at different times for access to these farm goods, customers who don't make it out to the physical farmer's market can get their staple groceries delivered to their door – dairy, meat, vegetables, bread, pastries, coffee, herbs and more.
