About Us

What Are We All About?

Nanaimo Farmers Market Online is where you are able to buy all your favourite locally grown and made goods that you have traditionally found at your local farmers markets in town. Our aim is to provide you with an easy and efficient online shopping experience with delivery to your home once a week.

An important change for 2020 is that NFMO is now run by Growing Opportunities in Partnership with Nanaimo Foodshare!

Established in 1997 and registered as a charity in 2000, Nanaimo Foodshare Society connects the community with resources, skills, and knowledge to create change that increases healthy food for everyone.

Specifically, we:

  • Work with community partners to address hunger in the community
  • Build food skills
  • Bring the community together to share resources
  • Build community capacity to provide healthy foods to everyone.

Through our programs, we support local sustainable food, help build food policy and develop coordinated community strategies to improve food security.

How Does It All Work?

Order online


Make your selections from the online store.

A $5 delivery fee will be added to each order. We deliver in the Nanaimo area, up to 15 km from our location. 

Expect your delivery

Orders collected by Tuesday at 4pm, will be delivered on the following Thursday afternoons. We recommend that you set out a cooler if you can't be home to receive your order.


Customize this to fit your lifestyle. Order each week, or every two. Change up your order and try something new and interesting, or keep it simple. Your choice!

Minimum Orders

There are no minimum orders and no subscriptions. Simply order what works for you!

Seasonal Changes

Much of what we offer is seasonal in nature. You may see some of your favourites go away from time to time. We think this just makes them more special when they return.
