Purchase a Garden Grab Bag

Beginning Friday, May 28, Ryerson students, faculty, staff and members of the public may purchase a limited number of Garden Grab Bags filled with fresh, seasonal produce grown on campus by the Ryerson Urban Farm

Available for purchase online, our weekly pre-packaged Garden Grab Bags include a surprise assortment of seasonal, spray-free produce, harvested on the same day they’re delivered to your door. You can’t get more farm-to-table than this!

What you’ll find in your Garden Grab Bag

The contents of our Garden Grab Bags will vary week to week and will change based on what’s currently in season. Garden Grab Bags sold at the beginning and end of our growing season will include fewer items than bags packaged during the height of our growing season, and the price will reflect this.

Our bags provide enough fresh produce to feed approximately 1 - 2 people for one week.
