Our Story

Join us as we enter a new chapter in our existence

Gourmet Gypsy has always been about community and making connections.

As we enter a new chapter in our existence we seek to find meaning and purpose in these times when people are anxious and uncertain and need comfort and nurturing.

We still want to deliver the Gourmet Gypsy favorites – global flavors, comfort food and healthy offerings, but reformatted so you can enjoy these in the comfort and safety of your homes.

For your convenience, we will also have basic pantry essentials in stock. Meat, poultry and fish, fruits and vegetables, pulses and nuts, baking ingredients (both conventional and keto), condiments, cleaning and sanitation products, toiletries and baby products.

Of course, we also want to offer the not-so-basic stuff that make our lives happier! Treats such as baked goods, snacks, specialty foods, drinks and desserts. On weekends, we will have platters of our salads, pasta, paella and entrees available to order.

We want to be able to support small businesses, particularly those led by women. We will carry products made by these businesses in the store to give their burgeoning enterprises a push. We will endeavor to support local farmers and producers and work with purveyors we trust.

We have endeavored to maintain a system that keeps everyone safe—not only our staff, but also our delivery partners. At the outset of the ECQ in March 2020, and the beginning of our journey feeding frontliners, we established a lockdown kitchen in order to keep our team, and the meals we produce safe. We are constantly developing and improving our safety and hygiene practices. In addition to housing our staff at the premises, we also put a contactless delivery and pickup system in place to ensure the wellbeing of everyone involved. As an essential service, we still acknowledge our responsibility in flattening the curve.

Our products are available for delivery, pickup and onsite purchase.

For online orders – you can place your orders on our website, through our online store. You may choose to pick up these items yourself, book a third-party courier, or avail of our in-house delivery service.

For onsite purchase – Schedule your shopping time slot on our reservations page. We will initially allow only two people to shop at a time. To avoid having to wait in line, we will allow you to reserve your time slot. An P80 fee will be charged to confirm the booking. This fee will be used for sanitation and safety materials and products we need to keep the store, our staff and our customers safe.

We want the on-site shopping experience to be as safe as possible for everyone. We have instituted extraordinary measures to ensure that. All shoppers and store staff will be required to wear facemasks and face shields while in the store. Before entering, shoppers will be required to step into a disinfecting footbath. In store, we have UVC air filtration systems and UV lamps in strategic areas to prevent germ build-up. Acrylic screens separate customers and staff to help enforce social distancing. Payment and packing will follow no-contact protocols.

Even with our extraordinary safety measures, we have designed the store to make your shopping experience as pleasant and relaxed as possible. Grocery shopping used to be fun and leisurely. We want you to have that feeling again.
