Groceries to Your Door: Oxford Fresh Partners Doing Deliveries
Let's get one thing straight: we do not have to physically distance from local food and that is amazing news.

Several of our Oxford Fresh producers, farmers and artisans are offering curbside, contactless pickup (check out SupportingOxford.ca for details) and a few more are even offering delivery.
