PRE ORDER: April 17-May 6 

PICK UP: May 10, 11am to 3pm

It's time for our (M)other's Day Market + Plant Sale. . . and this year, it's ONLINE!

Celebrate your beloved mothers and others with food items, garden-ready plants and artisan goods from dozens of local vendors! The event you know and love is moving to an online, pre-order only platform this year, focusing on food items and plants. There will be no plant swap this year due to COVID-19, but we are excited to offer native prairie plants, vegetable plants, vermicompost and more from 4 unique growers!

PRE-ORDER ONLINE || April 17th to May 6th.
Spread the love and support local business through our online storefront. Please be patient with the site, as high-order volumes on Local Line lately have slowed down their operating systems. 

PICK UP DAY || Sunday, May 10th, 11am - 3pm
Pick up in person at the Lord Robert's Community Center outdoor rink, 725 Kylemore. (see our updated pick-up protocols below)

Orders now closed.

Pick Up Protocols

What's the updated protocol for picking up orders? In order to keep our market staff, vendors and customers safe and healthy, we ask that you please do the following:

  • Please pick up your pre-purchased order on Sunday, May 10th during your designated pickup time (see below) at the Lord Roberts Community Centre (725 Kylemore Ave). For those who’ve ordered crepes, you should arrive between 11am-12pm. If you cannot make your pickup time, please let us know in advance (projects@fireweedfoodcoop.ca). ​​​

  • Your pickup time is based on the first letter of your last name:  

    •  A-F 11:00am-12:00pm (+ crepe orders)

    • G-M 12:00-1:00pm 

    • N-S 1:00-2:00pm 

    • T-Z 2:00-3:00pm 

  • If you arrive in a vehicle, please wait inside until there is space to line up in the ice rink area. Upon entering the ice rink, hand sanitizer is available and recommended to use. Please keep at least a 6 feet (2 meter) distance between yourself and others at all times. This is a simple precaution that can help keep everyone safe.

  • We highly recommend wearing a mask and gloves when picking up your order as you may be asymptomatic or presymptomatic with COVID-19 and can unknowingly endanger your community.

  • Orders are alphabetized by last name. Each table will have a piece of paper with the letter range of last names. When lining up, please wait on the line drawn by chalk (6 ft apart) until the person ahead of you has moved forward. 

  • When you get to the front, you will be asked to provide your last name at which point one of our team members will find and hand you your order. Please wait until they have placed your order on the table before picking up your bag(s). Please quickly collect your bag(s).

  • If you have ordered plants, you will pick those up at a separate table from the vendor you purchased from. Please know the name of the vendor ahead of time. If it is raining, we will instead set up tents to wait under for those walking or biking, and set-up curbside pick-up for those driving.

  • Once you have your order, promptly exit the ice rink. Please do not linger for any reason after you have collected your order.
