City Produce Co-op

Today was the first day of our produce delivery. It was so much fun, like a wonderful wonderland of veggies and fruits. More than we ever thought/expected an the extras were out of this world.

Here’s a picture of what I received today…

The cherries and strawberries that were extra

Doesn’t that look fantastic?! There were 2 other boxes of strawberries and another box of cherries, talk about a great deal. I got all of that for $28 and we split it three ways.
Here’s the breakdown of what we got:
  • 1 Watermelon
  • 8 Granny Smith Apples
  • 8 Bananas
  • 3 bunches of asparagus
  • 2 bunches of broccoli
  • 5 red onions
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 7 peaches
  • 5 ears of corn
  • 4 heads of red leaf lettuce
  • 1 bag of potatoes plus 5 extra

Everyone received the same items (except the strawberries and cherries) just different quantities by one or so. For instance if we ran out of tomatoes, someone may have gotten 4 instead of five but then they got an extra potato instead. The helpers (3 women that helped me sort – thank god) were given a choice of items that were left over, hence the extra lettuce in my bunch. So it all comes out even. The cost was $23. Awesome. Can’t wait to start using it tonight.

If you live in the city of STL you are more than welcome to join our group, just leave me a comment. Can’t wait for the next delivery. Thanks to Tracy our wonderful organizer and her sister. I am so thankful that we are now participating.

    Well I wouldn’t say it went smoothly. Unfortunately we had one disgruntled woman.
