7.1 We (or the courier services nominated by us) will only deliver Products ordered through the Site to a location where we provide delivery services.  You agree to provide us with complete and accurate information that we ask you to provide to enable us to fulfill your order that we have accepted.

7.2 We will aim to deliver during the window that you select. However, if an event occurs that is beyond our reasonable control, then we may not be able to do so and will not be liable to you or any other person for any such delay. In this instance, we will endeavour to provide you with notice of a delay as soon as reasonably possible.

7.3 We will deliver the Products to the front door or nominated position (if so requested on the order form) at the relevant Delivery Address   If you ask us to deliver inside a premise or building at the Delivery Address and we agree to do so, then you are responsible for all loss or damage suffered by us in connection with our delivery of the Products beyond the front door of the Delivery Address. This also applies to a requested delivery point at the Delivery Address.

We will not deliver alcohol Products to a person who is intoxicated or who is under 18 years of age.

(a) by midnight the day before despatch, no fees or charges will apply to that change.

 (b) notifications received after midnight the day before despatch will not be accepted as the goods will have been packed and/or dispatched.

 8 Risk and title

8.1 Title to the Product passes to you on the later of the date and time of:
(i) payment for those Products;

(ii) delivery of those Products to the Delivery Address;

(iii) collection of those Products from the Organic Market and Café at 5 Druids Avenue Stirling. 

Risk in the Products passes to you on the date and time of delivery to the nominated Delivery Address or at the time of collection from The Organic Market & Café at 5 Druids Avenue Stirling. 

8.2 Due to our current packing facilities and those of our suppliers we cannot guarantee that our products have not come into contact with, or contain traces of other products that are, or contain allergens such as nuts, gluten, soy, dairy, egg, bee products etc.

8.3 In the unlikely event that you receive from us product that is infiltrated by an insect, please notify us within 24 hours of receipt. We cannot accept responsibility for insect infestation if not notified within 24 hrs of receipt.

NB: Food grown and stored without herbicide or pesticide additives is sometimes more prone to infestation attack. For example, some moth eggs may find their way into the food during the process from pasture to table. We keep foods susceptible to weevils, moths, etc in a coolroom to minimise issues like this arising. Despite good housekeeping practices at our premises, eggs on rare occasions may hatch in transit to you, particularly in warmer weather. The transport companies used are not always refrigerated and goods could sit in depots overnight or weekends waiting for the next stage of delivery. This scenario could lead to incubation and mould etc particularly in hot and damp conditions. We recommend you seriously consider what you are ordering if delivery time is more than 2-3 days from dispatch in warmer weather. 


8.3a. The optional purchase of our insulated carrier bag ($10.00) for the transportation of your non perishable goods may alleviate or reduce the possibility of the above and is available from the Online Store (search: insulated chiller bag) but the purchase or use of that bag does not alter the provisions of clause 8.3.

We recommend that all grains, cereals, flours, pulses, etc are kept very cool and dry, for best protection refrigerated, especially Organic produce. If any infestation of insects occurs, ascertain what it is, and then freeze the produce for at least 3 days. Please do not hesitate to call us with any queries about what type of insect it may be.

8.3b. If the infestation is extreme, and beyond repair, we will be happy to send out a replacement or refund to you if you contact us within 24 hours of receipt.

8.4 Each state and territory within Australia has its own quarantine laws and lists of permissible plant/food items that can be sent across state boundaries. The onus is on you, the customer, to know and understand these laws and only order what you know can be safely imported from South Australia into your State. Customers from Western Australia in particular should familiarise themselves with these laws and permitted plant lists. Quarantine inspectors can and will open boxes that are of concern and will confiscate items that aren’t permissible. Goods damaged or confiscated by Quarantine or freight companies inspecting in the presence of quarantine inspectors and any resulting loss or damage are not the responsibility of The Organic Market & Café

8.5 We accept no responsibility for goods ordered and received that conflict with your dietary requirements e.g. gluten intolerance. Clause 8.2 outlines what the risks of cross contamination are. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the goods are suitable for their intended use. We reserve the right not to accept the return of goods that have been purchased in error.

9.Canceling an order

9.1 We may cancel any part of an order (including any orders that we have accepted) without any liability to you for that cancellation at any time if:

(a) the requested Products in that order are not available; (unless the substitution waiver has been given)

(b) there is an error in the price or the product description posted on the Site in relation to the relevant Product in that order; or

(c) that order has been placed in breach of these terms and conditions.

If we do so, then we will endeavour to provide you with reasonable notice of that cancellation, and will not charge you for the cancelled order if we cancel it before the delivery date or if you are not at fault or in breach of these terms and conditions.

9.2 You may cancel an order by emailing us at (or contacting us on 08 8339 4835 Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 6.00pm) by midnight the day before dispatch. No fees or charges will apply to that cancellation.

10.5 If:

(a) a Product that you have ordered is not available and we have not provided you with a substitute as requested; or

then we will credit your online account to the value of the Products that were not supplied to you.  This balance can then be applied to your next purchase.
