Interested in getting cheaper fruits and vegetables? The Saint John Food Purchasing Club offers monthly opportunities to order produce at less than half the cost of the grocery store.
Offering access to good quality vegetables and fruit at affordable prices.
The Saint John Food Purchasing Club is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that has been in operation since May, 1997. The goal is to help members in our community stretch their food dollar by offering access to good quality vegetables and fruit at affordable prices.
