CHECK OUT WHAT'S AVAILABLE
Visit our Product List page to see what is available. When the growing seasons change in New England we also offer non-local, certified organic produce, to increase available healthy options during the off-seasons. Check the website often for new items.
See something you like, grab it! Most of our items are artisan and not instantly reproducible. You will see items come and go. While this is usually availability based, please let us know if there's and item you really like- Give the item a shout out on our Facebook Page or Email Us- If we're (CML and the producers) aware of the demand, we will do our best to try and carry the product.
Check to see if we deliver to your town by creating an online account or see bottom of page. If we don't deliver to your town please consider having it delivered to a workplace or friend's home within our delivery area and let us know there's interest in delivery to your town.
Delivery is included. We hand deliver our orders to specific towns in Massachusetts on either Wednesday or Thursday. The day of delivery is based on where you are located. The order mininium for delivery is based on location.
The online market opens every week Wednesdays at midnight. Shop and add items to your shopping cart. Confirm your order so the items in your cart are saved for you. If you don't confirm your order the items are not saved for you. You may edit the confirmed order anytime before the order cutoff (market closes) on Mondays at 11am.
You will receive an email confirmation to the email address on file, when you confirm your order. Please review this for accuracy, we also depend on you to ensure everything that is in your shopping cart is what you ordered. If there are any questions feel free to contact us!
After the market cutoff Monday at 11am, orders are processed immediately and payments for orders are processed. You will then receive an email invoice. This will let you know what to expect for your delivery.
The evening before your scheduled delivery, you will receive a text message reminder with an ETA of when to expect your delivery. It is important to provide us with a number that accepts texts so we may communicate with you. If you don't text, no problem, let us know & we will make alternate communication arrangements.
At this point, we kindly ask for your help to reduce packing and preserve your delivery by leaving a cooler out. This ensures your items stay fresh as Central Mass Locavore, LLC. is not responsible for items that perish quickly due to inadequate storage at time of delivery, or items that are not stored properly after delivery.
Coming home to your cooler filled with fresh, local, clean, organic, sustainable food and you didn't have to drive anywhere, while still supporting local, truly is the best part of how this works. A time saver & reduces the desire to impulse shop, keeping you on your budget and the extra junk out of the house. Trips to the store become limited and one recoups time that already seems to go by too fast.
Try us out... Our customers have said time & time again "CML has changed our lives". We hope to have the same effect on you & your family.
With sincerity & in health,
Tim, Jacki, Katie & Eric at Central Mass Locavore
