Huh?

Our organic vegetables in subscription or individual order

Where do the vegetables come from?

All vegetables come from regional organic and Demeter farms from the Zurich region and neighboring cantons. We only save from farms that are less than 50km away from the city center of Zurich. Thus we reduce the CO2 footprint of us consumers, strengthen the local economy and guarantee fresh products to our customers. In the meantime, we work with a network of about 10 farms who regularly tell us when they have happy vegetables that are not allowed on the supermarket runway. The farmers are overjoyed when we help them make the delicious vegetables available for human consumption and pay a fair price.

Are fruits also saved?

We don't save fruit at Good Market. Why? We have found that many of them are often overripe and therefore ideal for processing into high quality juices. Moreover, there is too high a risk that the overripe fruits will already start to rot and thus end up as food waste at your customers. In addition, there is a risk that they will damage the remaining vegetables or soak the packaging.

Can I choose vegetable varieties?

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to customize seasonal vegetable boxes to meet any specific requests. If you receive vegetables you don't know, get inspired by our creative recipe ideas. In winter, similar winter vegetables may also be regularly traded at Good Market due to the season (carrots, potatoes, root vegetables, etc.). With the keyword search you will find suitable recipe suggestions, so that you can still cook a healthy recipe based on the same vegetable every week. If you don't like a certain vegetable, give it to your neighbors/friends or find a recipe to give it a new flavor and learn to love it. Our motto is: be intuitive and have fun cooking with rescued vegetables with all their shapes and colors.

What is the weight of each rescuer box?

  • The "mini" is between 2-3kg
  • The "Fair" is between 5-6kg
  • The "Good" is between 7kg-8kg

Why the buffer on the weight? Because depending on what abnormally delicious organic vegetables get's rescued, it is more expensive vegetables. For example, feather cabbage or nut lettuce, they cost about twice as much as leeks or celery, but still wants to be saved. Thus, there is a little less of it and the weight of the box of rescues varies accordingly from week to week.

Why are saved organic vegetables not much cheaper than in the supermarket?

Fair payment of our farmers is our top priority. We know our partners personally and want to offer our customers the advantage of being able to buy directly from the producers and at the same time do something good for the environment. Please note that we only offer organic vegetables from the Zurich region and therefore may be more expensive than organic products from other regions. However, by purchasing regionally, we are contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions. In addition, our 'Fair' and 'Good' rescuer boxes can often be cheaper than buying from a large supermarket chain if you skip delivery. If you have any questions about pricing, please feel free to contact us.

How can I give a box as a gift?

You have the option of taking out a new subscription and having the box delivered directly to a rescuer of your choice. To do this, simply enter the appropriate delivery address in a new customer account. After that you can manage your vegetable subscription yourself.

Shipping and collection

When can I pick up my vegetables?

From Friday noon. Pickup is available according to your pickup-station's pickup time, but we recommend picking up as early as possible. The earlier, the fresher the vegetables.

Is there a pick-up station for the rescuer box near me? The Centrale Végétale is unfortunately too far away for me.

We are working on finding more pick-up locations for our rescuer boxes to make it more convenient for all customers. If you have a suggestion for a pick-up location near you, feel free to let us know - we welcome your feedback!

How does my rescuer box get to me?

We work together with the social foundation Züriwerk, so that your rescue box is delivered or deposited by the courier.

Can I return my box?

We are fighting food waste and therefore cannot take back the Savior Box. We ask for your understanding. Instead, we offer a freshness guarantee: if you are unhappy with your products, send us a photo and we will refund you if the quality is not acceptable.

How can I change my delivery address?

In order to provide our customers with maximum service for the design of their subscription, we have stored a subscription administration in the respective customer account on www.goodmarket.ch. Here you can easily make changes yourself under "Delivery address" and adjust your delivery address. It is important to note that changes made up to and including Tuesday 23:59 of a calendar week will take effect for the delivery of the current week. Changes made later cannot be considered for this delivery.
