Wholesale Buyers Video Demo

Cow-op Online Farmers Market Logo

Thank You for your interest in purchasing wholesale from Cowichan Valley farmers & food producers through Cow-op

The Cow-op wholesale platform intends to serve two types of customers: Food Service & Retail/Resale. If your goal is to be more aligned with the local food movement, Cow-op is LEGITIMATELY LOCAL.

This short video is a basic walkthrough of the wholesale platform and placing your first order.  

How it works:

  • Our online shopping period is open each week for 5 days (Thursday at 12:01am – Monday at 11:59pm)
  • Each product listing includes information about the farm, growing practices and the farmers themselves
  • Certain wholesale product listings will be specifically labelled WSFS (Wholesale Food Service) & WSRE (Wholesale Retail/Resale)
  • Once you create & confirm your order, you can edit your order as often as you like (nothing is held for you until you click CONFIRM)
  • provides convenient, online ordering, invoicing and payment via credit card or e-transfer (other payment terms available upon request)

Cow-op Farmers & Producers deliver their products to us on Tuesdays & Wednesdays (at our aggregation location – Hope Farm, Drinkwater Road, Duncan) then our dedicated team organizes all products into individual orders. On Thursdays our pick up orders are distributed to one of 6 pick up points in the Cowichan Valley & Victoria or delivered to homes & businesses throughout the Cowichan Valley & Nanaimo! 

Our goal at Cow-op is an engaged & educated wholesale buying experience. We invite feedback and requests for additional sizing & products.
