Fresh City Is Providing A Healthier Way To Do Groceries

“Fresh City makes it simple to eat a healthy and seasonal diet. Working with some of Ontario’s best farmers and makers to deliver fresh produce and healthy local + organic groceries right to your door.”

They are a city farm and are proud to work with some of Ontario’s finest growers. From sourcing from organic farms, to packing in reusable bags, to delivering with electric bikes, their operations respect both people and planet. They are a Certified B-Corp and have been featured in several documentaries for their pioneering work in farming the city.

Located at Downsview Park, they organically grow on two acres and in a greenhouse. It’s where they run farm tours and events as well as many of their workshops.  The 3,000-square foot greenhouse is fully self-contained and off-grid, the greenhouse boasts rainwater capture and irrigation system and uses solar energy to power the fans.

Fresh City has created a Member Farmer Program as a way to connect urban farmers to land, facilities, and a supportive learning community. Today the program supports over 20 farmers as they pursue self-sufficiency and farming business dreams. Fresh City farmers grow vegetable, herbs, and flowers for them to sell.

Sounds like an amazing operation, doesn’t it?! Well, it just got better with the recent launch of the baby/toddler category.

I had the opportunity to recently try their services and products to see how it would work for my amazing community of readers.

Firstly an account would need to be set up on their website where you would put in all your information and then you can begin to follow the instructions to order your groceries online.

There are many things that can be ordered and I just didn’t know what I wanted to try first but I did manage to put a good list of things from a variety of the different categories but especially from the baby/toddler category.  My order was inputted with a simple click of the mouse and my delivery was scheduled for the following week on a Wednesday. It was very simple!

The delivery date arrived and I was excited to receive the package. It arrived promptly on the Wednesday and was neatly packed in a great reusable bag which can be returned or you may leave it at your door for the next order delivery date. I would call this environmentally friendly!

The baby and toddler products that I received were some fruit snacks, Hugga Bear Chocolate chip cookies, pasta with different shapes (dino and farm ones which are super cute!) and we also got the sensitive unscented baby wipes. We also got ourselves some neat things too.


The products all looked so great and they are high quality food. The fruits we got are fresh and taste great! Everything that we got we have loved.

Therefore, for this #MelandNikkiReview we give Fresh City 5 Kiwis out of 5 for the quality of food, prompt delivery, simple to use service, environmentally friendly and offering healthy options for families in the Greater Toronto Area. It’s a mouth full of great qualities but all worth mentioning. It’s a service that is great for families who want healthy options and it is convenient at its finest.

There is more with Fresh City that you will need to check out such as the prepared meal, recipe kits and so much more.

As a special offer to Momma Braga readers you can receive $20 off your order as a first time customer by using promo code: FRESHREADER. What a great offer – thank you Fresh City!

Make sure to follow Fresh City on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as I am sure there will be so much more to come from them.

Special thank you to Kim from Fresh City for giving Momma Braga the opportunity to review their great service and keep up the great work!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Trendy Bare Babies Is Making Its Mark!

Baby products is in high demand in our family right now as some of my family members are expecting so now we are really intrigued by all the neat products that are available!

Recently, we have been introduced to Bare Babies who creates trendy unique organic clothing and accessories for little ones. You will be able to find bandana bibs, leggings, hats, organic teethers, diaper covers and swaddles.

The product that we got to see was the Organic Teething Toys and we got two adorable designs! One was the shark design and the other was the cat with glasses design. We absolutely loved both designs – super adorable!

The package came individually wrapped with the product, teether instructions, business card and they provide information on being tested and passed the CPSC product safety regulations in detail. It was a very informative package and appreciated by us as we have never seen this type of teether before.

The Organic Wooden Bunny Teether uses organic fabric and a wooden ring. To assemble the teether, simply “slip knot” bunny ears up through the centre of the wooden ring. The fabric is the part that your baby would be putting in their mouths and the best part is that this piece can be removed to be hand washed in phosphate free detergent and laid flat to dry.

The teether is easy to hold, clean and very appealing to the little ones. It would make a perfect gift for a baby shower or even as a welcoming gift to a new baby. Really loved the detailed instructions that comes with the product as I find it very helpful. The Organic Wooden Bunny Teether is truly unique and you can tell that a lot of thought and love went into it.

For this #MelandNikkiReview, we give Bare Babies 5 hops out of 5 for the quality, uniqueness and trendy factor.

You must check out Bare Babies on Etsy where you can see all the adorable items that they make. I must warn you in advance that it is hard not to find it all adorable and trendy!

Make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram to see more of the beautiful clothing and accessories.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
