We will have to charge you for 50% of your box price, your box will still be made, but will be donated to someone or a family in need. The reason for this is we order produce specifically for you! Procuring one day in advance to continually gives you the freshest available, and we only order the exact amount needed for each day. When you suspend your delivery within that two day window we end up with extra produce . Maybe not literally as we would like, but our business will incur the hit. Please help us keep our prices down by communicating your vacations and away-from-home time with Debbie.
You can suspend or hold your current subscription through the website as follows:
- Go to the My Account page: https://dev.ggetter.com/my-account/
- Click on Subscriptions on the left, or: https://dev.ggetter.com/my-account/subscriptions/
- Click on the “View” to the right of the subscription you would like to suspend. You may have more than one subscription if you have products delivered at a differing frequency. Otherwise you should only see one.
- Click on “Suspend” which is on the 4th line down.
Suspending a subscription puts it on hold until you reactivate the subscription. To reactivate follow the same instructions above and click on “Reactivate” where the page used to show “Suspend”.
You can also contact us by phone or email to suspend or reactivate your subscription.
Note: Subscription orders are initiated on the Sunday prior to your delivery. If you suspend after Sunday, your subscription will be suspended beginning on the following week.
We’ve worked very hard to establish relationships with local farmers and purveyors of delicious organic products to bring you a wide variety of healthy local food.
And here are a few more reasons:
It’s easy and saves you time.
You’ll get fun and healthy food delivered to your door.
We’re a local business, not a chain or big box store.
We know what we’re doing when it comes to produce.
We provide you a good variety, for better health, not just for looks.
Organic produce is grown without the use of pesticides or other chemical agents. While farmers do their best to keep out bugs, sometimes one or two sneak in and go for a ride.
Due to our Northern climate, Oregon’s growing season doesn’t last all year long. In winter there is an ample supply of items such as: apples, pears, potatoes, onions, and winter squash. Local farmers will still be harvesting limited quantities of a few crops such as: beets, turnips, kale and other hearty greens, leeks and occasionally other items. For boxes other than the Local’vore, when Oregon produce isn’t at it’s prime we source from, primarily, California, Mexico and Texas so there’s always plentiful delicious organic produce available and it’s not coming from too far away.
We source local produce as much as possible in all of our boxes. Our Local’Vore includes only locally sourced produce. It represents our commitment to the Oregon and Washington farmers.
While we prioritize local produce, we do work with suppliers all over the country (and some in other countries). Mostly we get produce from California, Mexico and Texas. During his years in the organic produce industry, Michael, our owner, has come to know the providers we work with and he’s choosey about who he works with, as we only want the best stuff for you.
For instance, we had pears from New Zealand a couple of months ago. Michael had met the owner of the farm a few years ago at an organic food conference and was able to talk to him about how the pears travel and are handled. Knowing this guy and knowing he cares about his pears and how they get to you, we were happy to put those pears in your boxes.
Of course. And thank you. We’ll even give you 25% off your next box!
We’re a web based business so we don’t have to pay for people to rotate the stock, cashiers, large displays, or any of the other stuff grocery stores have to pay for. As well, grocery stores purchase fresh produce speculatively (they try to guess how much people will buy) and predicting what people will buy is very challenging and costly because they end up throwing away a lot of produce.
We only purchase what we’re going to put in your boxes, so we have very little waste and no need for lots of storage. The food comes in, we pack it up and send it on its way to you. All of this keeps our costs low and our quality high and we pass that savings and freshness on to you.
You can put your box delivery on hold for as long as you like, just call us or email us and let us know when you want it to stop and when you want it to start up again. email@example.com, 971.285.2370
Please note: we really prefer 48 hours advance notice to put subscriptions on hold.
Yes. We’ll leave your box somewhere obvious, out of the direct sunlight.
If we leave your box by your back door, we’ll shoot you a text to let you know where it is.
Usually between 3:30pm and 8pm, depending on the weather and time of year. We don’t want your boxes to sit in the heat or cold for too long.
Please note, for the safety of our drivers we try to stop delivering after 8pm. If your box delivery misses the 8pm cutoff (due to traffic or weather), we’ll give you a call before then to see if delivering later is okay and if not schedule a time that’s convenient for you on the following day.
Credit card companies and the payment gateway services charge Grocery Getter about 3-4% per transaction, which really adds up. We’d rather keep our prices low and give the highest return to our farmers.
We prefer ACH (Automated Clearing House), which uses your checking or savings account and pulls directly from you bank. We also accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover. Cash or check payments can be arranged.
We have a small warehouse at 7201-B NE Glisan, in Portland.
Sure, just give us call or send us an email to schedule the best time for your pick-up.
Please note that your pick up must be on the delivery day you’re scheduled for, or the day after.
We deliver to homes and business in the greater Portland metro area.
Right now we go as far as Hillsboro to the west, West Linn to the South, and Wood Village to the East. We do not deliver in Vancouver yet as there’s only one delivery driver, but we are looking to add that area sometime soon.
In short, no. We plan our delivery routes to minimize our impact on the environment, so we try to keep them neat, tidy and efficient.
Nothing. The price you see on the website is the price you pay. There are no hidden or extra fees. Ever.
You’re not locked into anything. You can cancel at anytime – all we hope is that you will let us know if there was something we could’ve done better and maybe even say goodbye.
It’s easy! Just pick the box you think will work best for you and your family and then choose to have it delivered weekly or every other/3rd/4th week.
We’ll deliver it to your door it in the late afternoon / early evening of your delivery day and then you eat lots of great healthy food.
Please note, we need 48 hours to process your order, so, for example, if you sign up as a new Thursday delivery customer on a Wednesday, you will get your box the following Thursday, not the day after you sign up.
Grocery Getter Organic is a better way to shop for food.
We’re a home delivery service bringing you certified organic fruits, vegetables and other natural foods. Plus lots of great organic small-batch products made locally.
We believe that greater access to quality foods leads to a stronger, healthier community for everyone and we provide that access in a way that’s sustainable and reduces the number of miles your food travels from the farms to your tables.
