What is A Flying Fork?

A Flying Fork is the new way to shop for groceries and household items, serving the growing communities within the South Simcoe area. Not only do we put a whack of time back into your day, we bring you the best of what our area offers locally, at competitive prices. We have all the irresistibly fresh foods you could want, Old World style specialty meats and baked goods, in addition to the most popular grocery brands. And we bring it right to your door.

A Flying Fork was created by an Innisfil mother who finally gave up the Toronto commute to concentrate on bringing this essential service 'home'. Serving the time-stretched families, housebound seniors and busy professionals living in Barrie, Innisfil, Essa, Bradford and New Tecumseth, our prices are affordable, with a range of delivery options and regular promotions.

A Flying Fork operates differently than the large urban grocery 'e-tailers' with the overhead of warehousing, fleet management and logistics. We are 'personal shoppers' with high standards, and pride ourselves in hand-picking the highest quality products we would buy for our own families. During all parts of the shopping and delivery process, we ensure food quality by adhering to strict health and safety policies.
Why does it make sense to shop with A Flying Fork?

Many South Simcoe residents face unreasonable time demands in the effort to make a living. Sometimes we can't even take advantage of the 'healthy slower-paced living' that brought us here in the first place!

Do you slump into your couch on January 2 in need of a holiday after the holidays? Convenience services are not luxuries, they are essential in an age of single parenting, commuting, and double-breadwinner situations.

With A Flying Fork, shopping is easy and fast, and you can do it in your jammies and curlers. You no longer need to spend your office break in a grocery line-up, nor tote your teething toddler through the aisles.

Pre-planned shopping helps you to avoid pitfalls. Resolutions to eat healthier meals and to avoid certain foods, end up falling back to the same old unimaginative patterns and menus. We provide QuickLists to help customers select from products meeting specific criteria (i.e. 'low-carb'). We will continue building a recipe repository with customized shopping lists in our 'Inspiration' section.

We are here because of you! We appreciate your feedback and encourage you to be demanding. We can source the best of the unique products (health foods, ethnic, etc.) you desire, and have close to 2000 products in our database, so you won't still have to run out for something.

For those with limited transportation options, or who are shut in due to recovery or inclement weather, we offer reasonable rates for delivery. Neighbours may wish to split the delivery charge on a double-order. Its cheaper than cab fare, and gives a well-deserved break to the people who usually help you out.

You don't have to be a 'techie' or even own a computer to use our service. Although we are primarily an online shopping portal, for those who prefer it, we take orders by phone.

We really go places. We're able to zip around Simcoe County to get your hands on quality goods that the big box stores just don't carry. And we make sure we reach your community at least twice a week.
What kind of food does A Flying Fork sell?

A Flying Fork provides access to close to 2,000 items - hardly a mere convenience store! Browse around in our departments and see what we have irresistibly fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and seafood, fine cheese and deli goods, dairy, freshly roasted coffee, and 'still warm from the oven' breads and pastries. Many of our products are sourced from the fine family-owned businesses in the area - including butchers, bakers, fishmongers, organic farmers and specialty ethnic food providers. In addition to exclusive specialty products, we also carry a full selection of the most popular frozen foods and packaged brands of beverages, household items, canned goods, and cereal, so you can do all of your shopping in one stop.

We strive to carry a wide selection of products that are most popular with our customers, and regularly add new items to our product assortment. To see what products have been added to our store, click on the New Products links located in each department. And, as our product line is always a work in progress, we want you to tell us what products, sizes, and flavours YOU would like us to carry. This can be done by dropping us a line using our contact form.

If you would like to comment on or recommend a product to other shoppers, please write a short review by clicking on the product's icon or description and selecting the 'Review this Product' link.
How is my order handled?

Your groceries are handled by specialized experts who know their products inside and out. We follow the HACCP food safety system in all steps of the purchasing, storing and delivery process. Our couriers are certified using the In Good Hands food management course under the auspices of the Simcoe County District Health Unit.

A Flying Fork's groceries come from the best food suppliers in the area who supply us with the freshest, highest quality perishable and non-perishable products available. All fresh or perishable products are purchased from the suppliers on the day of delivery, and carefully packed by hand in bags and special temperature-controlled containers, paying close attention to delicate and temperature sensitive products. Your groceries get quality treatment. Your trained courier will bring your groceries right to your door and review your order to ensure your satisfaction.

We take pride in the high quality of our fresh food and packaged goods. That's why we guarantee your satisfaction with every product. If you are dissatisfied with any item in your order, please contact us right away we'll either replace it with an acceptable item, or refund 100% of the cost for that item.
