About Us


THE STORE:

Legacy Greens grocery store is located in downtown Kitchener, at 18 Ontario Street North. We specialize in fresh produce, local foods, eggs, dairy, healthy grab-and-go snacks, made-from-scratch meals, and food-focused gifts. We believe everything is better when fresh — that’s why we roll with the seasons. In the winter we’ll be simmering soups, and in the summer we’ll have our freezers stocked with Four All ice cream and The Pop Stand popsicles! We strive to offer unique, inspiring flavours to the downtown Kitchener community.

WEEKLY PRODUCE BOXES:

Our produce boxes are your subscription to the very best each season has to offer. Each seasonal box runs for six weeks, with weekly pick-up at our store. See our Produce Box Page to check when our next subscription becomes available. Sign up in advance, as our produce box subscriptions usually sell out!

WHERE WE GOT STARTED:

In an exploration of agriculture and entrepreneurship, Legacy Greens Founder, Jordan Dolson, started a part time market garden in 2014 on her parents dairy farm in Atwood, ON.  This market garden continued on until the end of 2018, supplying our store with greens, herbs, tomatoes and ground cherries. Our focus going forward is to concentrate on our store in Downtown Kitchener while partnering with local growers and food entrepreneurs.
