Local Fare: Organics Delivered

Best of Season Box

Something very exciting happened to us this week. The door bell rang and a friendly man delivered a big box of organic produce. Isn’t that great!? A dear friend of mine gave me two weeks of produce deliveries as a thank you for watching her son. I’ve been saving them for this month when the beloved Farmers Market is closed. They are called “Best of the Season” boxes, so you never know quite what you’re going to get. This week mine had a bunch of romaine lettuce, a bunch of spinach, a bunch of collards, potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams(yes those are two different things!), bananas, mangoes, oranges, apples, grapefruits and a cucumber. All organic and all in perfect condition!

It was out of my normal cooking style to have to cook something based on what I have, not what I’ve chosen, but so far this week it’s worked out great! I don’t think I would use a service like this full time because a)I LOVE to grocery shop myself, I need it for the inspiration, and b) I usually have a specific idea of what I want in mind. I do know that this company in particular does provide you with the option to order specific things, and I know there are other grocery delivery options out there! But I will definitely use them for times like this, when my cooking mojo is diminished and the fun of opening a big box of surprises is motivating!

    I love these services! I’ve gotten deliveries form Door-to-Door Organics– the produce was bright and beautiful and stayed fresh for a week.

    But I’m with you– I like food shopping, and I couldn’t always sacrifice that weekly pleasure for the ease of home delivered organics.

    Thought of you today when I bought some organic blueberries at the Superstore:)
    Also thought you would be encouraged to know the roof is out from underneath the tarps on the new market!
    Can’t wait! We should have a celebration over there when it opens!
