    My friend has been doing this the past month and says it is a great deal! She splits the food with her mom since it is a lot of produce! She also recommends arriving between 8 and 9 am since the best items are often gone quickly. Here are some of the items they had lately: big tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, eggplant, green peppers, and various types of other peppers.

      Good to know! We may give it a try too. That’s A LOT of produce and I love the premise behind the organization – it’s designed so that people can share with + give to others.

    I’ve been doing this for the last 5-6 weeks and I really do love it! The best part about it compared to things like bountiful baskets is that you get to pick your produce, which means you don’t have to get all 60 lbs and you can get more of one thing or none of something else. This week I got some beautiful English cucumbers and some fancy hydroponically grown heirloom tomatoes that are just delicious!! Also you don’t need to bring your own bags or box as they give you a box to use. The other great thing is that for a single $100 donation you can go every weekend (to every single location if you want) for a whole year!
