Local, Organic Produce for the Lazy: Door to Door Organics

Posted Feb 01 2010 6:46am

Before you guys get offended by the title of this post, know that “lazy” is mostly in reference to myself. I admit, in the winter, the idea of getting up early on a Saturday morning to go to my local farmer’s market is pretty unappealing. I also don’t like making five stops each time I go grocery shopping. There has to be a better way to get local and organic produce! There is, friends, there is.

If you live in Colorado, Kansas City, Michigan, or on the East Coast, that way is Door to Door Organics. For a mere $23 a week (or biweekly), you can have fresh, local, seasonal, and organic produce delivered right to your door. The $23 will get you the “Bitty Box” (the smallest size they sell), which they say is appropriate for an individual, couple, or roommates. I ordered that box to come biweekly. Here’s a sample menu of the Bitty Box:

  • 4 Bananas
  • 4 Bosc Pears
  • 2 Braeburn Apples
  • 3 Orlando Tangelos
  • 2 Cucumbers
  • 1 Romaine Lettuce
  • 1 Celery Heart
  • 1 Sunburst Squash
  • 1 Sweet Baby Broccoli

You can also customize the box according to your taste. I’d say getting all of that organic produce delivered to my door is worth more than $23. You can also get bigger boxes if you go through more produce. I’m thinking that this $50 worth of produce each month means we’ll barely have to buy any at the store. Sister, aren’t you excited?! (My sister/roommate hates shopping for produce, for whatever reason.)
