3. Pickup and pay for your order with cash/check. You will pick up your boxed produce that will be waiting for you. Pay only a 10% charge per order.
What is the usual cost of the produce?
The great thing about our group is that we carry the same produce that you see at your local Whole Foods or Trader Joes - we get our items from the same place they do, we just do not mark up the prices! You are paying wholesale prices when you order from us.
What we order changes every week, but most times we have about 30-50 different items available. Here are a few of the items we often order:
Potatoes $3.60/3lb bag
Romaine lettuce $1.43/head
Avocados $0.94 each
Salad mix $2.51/8oz
Apples $4.63/3lb bag
Honey $14.50/1.5lb jar
We carry all of the seasonal fruits such as berries in the summer, melons in the late summer/fall, citrus in the winter, etc. Usually we order fruits and vegetables that are in season, as these are better priced and the best quality. However, there are many different items to choose from, as their is MUCH available.
We carry items from local Illinois farms. Eggs from pasture-raised hens and grass-fed meats are available most times of the year. They come from local, small farmers in the area that treat their animals more like pets then livestock!
We are happy to announce that we are now offering group buys from Green Pasture. We also order raw almonds direct from farms in California. This insures that your almonds are truly raw, as all almonds sold in stores are either fumigated or steam pasteurized (yes, even if the package says they are raw, they are not!).
Where does the produce come from?
The produce we order comes from all over the country. As much as we try to incorporate as much locally grown produce that we can, some foods such as bananas, pineapples, mangoes, avocados and other foods are impossible to obtain locally.
