We’ve aimed to get the majority of our products into our online store and to have prices match however there will be times when a Sweet Deal sale price or product offering is only available in-store for various reasons. If you’ve noted a discrepancy, please reach out to our Ecommerce team to let them know at email@example.com
In the summer and fall, 85% of our produce is grown locally in Ontario. Outside of our growing season, we do our best to source organically grown produce from Canada and internationally. You’ll notice on each produce page that the countries of origin are listed. From time to time, depending on inventory, some items may change in origin from the time of order placement and collection (for instance, we may have Ontario Gala apples today, but have Quebec Galas next week when the order is filled).
Yes, our order minimum is $50.
The prices in your cart are subject to change. Our Sweet Deal pricing ends at the end of the day Thursday. So if you’ve ordered Thursday but that order is not collected until Monday, that pricing on some Sweet Deals may change.
Depending on stock and availability, some items may become unavailable between when you’ve selected them and when it comes time to pick your order. When this happens, if you’ve allowed for substitutions, our team member will offer you a substitution of similar or better quality, quantity, and price. You’ll never pay more and can always reject a substitution for a refund later!
If an item is not available when your order is being prepared, our picker will follow your directions regarding substitutions. You will be notified of any substitutions when your order is ready for pick up. If you have indicated in your preferences that you do not want substitutions, your picker will not pick an alternative item.
At this time we cannot accept vendor coupons online.
We currently accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and VISA Debit currently.
We’re sorry to say that at present we cannot accept gift cards online. We’re working hard on it, and hope we’ll be able to add this payment option shortly.
If you need to add to your order, please give as a call as soon as possible. Be sure to have your order number handy and we’ll do our absolute best to accommodate! 416-762-4848 x 3

When your order is prepared, the selected payment is authorized for up to 125% of the order total to accommodate order changes (substitutions, price changes, etc). If you view your card and see a pending charge that is higher this is why. If after 5 business days of your order being delivered and/or picked up you don’t see the final charge please contact email@example.com
We offer delivery within approximately 5km – 7km of our store located at 108 Vine Avenue. If you select delivery the website will prompt you for a postal code to see if we’ll deliver to your area.

While in general, we hope to be able to fill orders as soon as the next day, this timeline may be affected by holidays, store closures and regulations from the City of Toronto’s COVID-19 response which may place extra strain on our system.
We offer contactless pick-up in our parking lot for a $5 fee.
We offer delivery within 5 km of our store (108 Vine Ave) for $10.
Our drivers do not expect tips from customers. The Sweet Potato is committed to paying fair wages (always paying above minimum wage) as well as offering additional Health Benefits. Our drivers, like the rest of the Yam Fam, are not part of the gig economy. That said, realistically speaking, there will still be grateful customers who will want to tip drivers, in which case the drivers do have the right to accept tips. In the event tips have been received, the expectation will be for drivers to share it equally with the rest of the team.
Because some of our fresh items (produce, meat, seafood, and fine cheese) are sold by weight the final price may change based on the items picked for your order. As well, sales begin and end at different points during the week. This means you will be billed the current price as of your date of delivery.
When your order is prepared, the selected payment method will be authorized for up to 125% of the order total to accommodate updates to your order. The difference is credited back to you once final amounts for weighed items are totalled.
Please come to our parking lot at 162 Vine Ave (just west of our store). Park in one of the dedicated Online Order parking spots (located on your right as you enter the parking lot), and then phone our Customer Service desk at 437-922-4740 and your order will be brought out to your car for a contactless pick-up. Please open your trunk and remain in your car, we will load your order!
Right now, our daytime delivery windows are 4 hours: 8 AM – 12 PM; 12 PM – 4 PM; 4 PM to 8 PM. We also offer a two-hour nighttime window between 8 PM – 10 PM.
As we expand our service and fleet of vehicles, we hope to change this schedule to offer more flexibility.
Yes, we ask that you be home to receive your order given that many items are highly perishable and favourites of Toronto racoons.
Our delivery vehicle is equipped with refrigeration to keep your fresh and frozen items at the appropriate temperatures. We ask that you pick a delivery window when you’ll be home to safely store your items at home. We are not responsible for product quality that is left at your door, within your delivery time frame.
Absolutely! We are happy to give you a refund if what you bought is spoiled, if it’s not what you expected, or if it’s just plain unsatisfying. Depending on which department the products originated in, there may be a few things we need from you to process the refund (like photographs of the problems/damage, or pics of the barcode and date-stamp), but those are just to help us make sure any problems get corrected and reported to everyone who needs to know about them. Whatever the issue, please let us know about it at firstname.lastname@example.org!
In the coming months, we’ll be adding our Cut Fruit & Veggies, Sweet Potato Kitchen, and Bulk offering.
We also are working to include gift cards as a payment option.
We’re working hard to keep everyone – including our customers, our staff, our suppliers, and our community – safe and healthy. Some of the policies and practices that we’ve instituted to make that reality are:
