Online farmers market to service Flushing


An online farmers market aiming to sell high-quality food at the click of a mouse is expanding to deliver to Queens.

OurHarvest, a company that aims to bypass concerns about artificial additives and mislabeled products by buying food products straight from small food companies, will be delivering orders to be picked up the CrossFit gym in Flushing at 59-43 Fresh Meadow Lane.

Customers must pre-purchase the goods from the OurHarvest website by selecting items and paying for them at least 48 hours before the delivery date. For every $25 order placed, the socially conscious food service will deliver a meal to a local food pantry.

Products available on OurHarvest’s website include locally raised meats from upstate New York and Pennsylvania, and berries, fruits and vegetables from Long Island. Some products are sold in family or bulk sizes to ensure that prices remain as low as possible, and each selection is attached to a description listing the farm or company of its origin and a complete list of ingredients.

Artisanal food products such as organic loose tea, fresh tortillas, cheese and freshly baked bread are also offered.
