Lester’s Farm Market-
Where Family Traditions Also Grow!
Over the years, John and Mary have created a family farm market with a warm feeling, everyone who walks through their doors are greeted with a welcoming smile. Today, John and Mary, two of their sons, Chris and Brad, and daughter, Susan, along with their 60 employees strive to maintain this atmosphere for our customers. Always improving, expanding and growing in more ways than one, Lester’s Farm Market has become not just John and Mary’s family farm; it is seen by many others as their own as well.
We’re located on Brookfield Road in St. John’s (smack dab between St. John’s and Mount Pearl). The building, constructed in 1999, has a market area of over 2000 square feet. It has wooden floors and is decorated with treasures from our family’s farming past.
Our homegrown produce is harvested daily and placed on our shelves within hours. We have lots in store – locally grown and imported fresh produce, meat products, Veseys seeds and gardening supplies, freshly baked bread and treats as well as ice cream. We also have gift certificates that are perfect Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas – every occasion, really! So stop in for excellent produce, a warm atmosphere, and great service.
Terms and Conditions of our Online Store
Thanks for using our online store! Although we have been open to the public since 1994, this is our first time with an online store. This is a full disclaimer that we may in fact make mistakes as this is a huge learning curve for us. If there are any issues with your order once you receive it, please contact us as soon as possible so we can do for you.
Due to the high demand of online orders as well as in store orders, we require a full day to put your order together. For instance: if you place an order on Tuesday your order will be ready for pick up on Wednesday. If you need something the same day, you can always drop into our market located at 173 Brookfield Road.
Curb Side Pick Up
When you place an order online we can offer you contactless curbside pickup. When you arrive in our parking lot simply look for the area that has the “Online Orders” signs. Park by this area, you will find a phone number which you call upon arrival. Simply give the staff member your name and what vehicle you’re in and they will bring it out to the trunk of your car.
Although we have lots of gardening aids, retail items, local products and an onsite bakery, our own fruits and veggies are our main products. Growing fruits and veggies in our climate may mean that there is limited quantities from time to time, an item may be available one day and not the next. We want to ensure we are providing you with produce that is fresh, and fully grown to our expectations. Please understand that quantities may change from day to day, week to week and month to month.
The information you provide in the checkout is solely used for your ordering purposes. If however you would like to stay in touch with us you can always follow us on our social media avenues, or better yet create an account here on this site!
Due to the recommendations of our current COVID situation, we CANNOT accept returns for the safety and well being of our staff who handle orders. We will revisit this policy once more restrictions are lifted.
With respect to plants, we do not accept returns on plants. We take pride in ensuring that when plants leave our farm they are happy and healthy. We are always here to give you advice on any issues that may arise.
As mentioned above, this is our first online store and we will be making changes as we go to better your experience. Please hang in there! We appreciate your patience as we navigate through this process.
