Company description

OurHarvest is a fast-growing, mission-based, online farmers market in the New York Metro Area that connects customers to real food, straight from regional farmers and producers while fighting hunger. By partnering directly with our farmers and suppliers, we create a sustainable, transparent supply chain that offers better prices to farmers; fresher, more affordable, and more nutritious food for customers; and less food waste and environmental impact for everyone.

OurHarvest is the only online farmers market that allows customers to curate their own order from our variety of carefully curated local produce, proteins, dairy, bakery, pantry staples, and specialty products. Our online ordering and delivery platform allows our customers to shop what they want, when they want, without being tied to a subscription or CSA, while giving back. For every order over $25, we donate a meal to a local food pantry. We are proud to have donated 30,000+ meals to date!
