I taught a class tonight and one of the girls told me about this produce co op. I have heard about one before but you had to take turns going to Phoenix. This is a great deal and I am so excited about it that I just had to come right home and blog about it. Check it out at bountifulbaskets.org. Here is the skinny. There are several drop off locations all over the valley. Sorry if you don't live in AZ, plug your ears. The drop offs are every two weeks and you go online and purchase what you want. The produce basket, laundry basket size, is full of fruit and veggies, all varieties that are purchased in bulk like the restaurants do. That's why it is so cheap. You get the whole basket for 15 bucks! About $50 worth of produce. You don't know what you will get which I think is half the fun. The challenge will be to use all of it. You can also order great breads for only $2 and even no hormone or antibiotic cheeses and even raw milk cheese for really cheap. You place your order then make sure you pick it up at the designated time. If you come help volunteer for an hour, you can even get extra free stuff. The first pick up is on the 19th so place your order soon. There is a location right by me. I can't believe I didn't know about this! They are even going to have organic soon. I will die and go to heaven. So , jump on the website and place your order.
Stay tuned....Tomorrow is Safe Food Friday!
