Eligibility & Criteria

Yes, my farm is located in Savour Ottawa's "buy local region".

* Local food means food produced or raised in the "buy local region".

Savour Ottawa member producers must be verified by the Farmers’ Markets Ontario (FMO) MyPick® Verified Local Farmer® program.

This includes the following:

  • Filling out a Savour Ottawa-MyPick® Agriculture Production Plan which can be found here:
    The Agricultural Production Plan indicates crops grown, livestock raised, quantity, harvest times, etc. The Plan will be used by Inspectors during the farm/operation verification visit conducted by Farmers’ Markets Ontario. A link to the Production Plan will be sent to you electronically. Assistance to fill out the form can be provided if required.
  • Undergo a farm verification, conducted by Farmers’ Markets Ontario, using the Agricultural Production Plan, as indicated above.

The timing of the verifications depends on when the application is received and the type of agricultural product requiring verification. For example, vegetable production cannot be verified until there is product in the field.

For new members, no marketing materials will be distributed until the farm verification has successfully been completed. Therefore, if your vegetables are verified in June or July, you will receive marketing materials in July or August, even if you have applied in February.

If you decide not to purchase (at cost) farm trading cards, and your cards are required for inclusion in the farm restaurant booklets, you will be charged for the cost of producing the cards – approximately $30. (Cards will only be required if you are selling to a restaurant using the booklets).
