How does it work?
Orders are created on Fridays, and an email reminder is sent out no later than noon. Once the orders are created, you can make substitutions to your order, shop for additional items or make any other changes to that order. (Keep in mind, you will have until 7am one day prior to your delivery day to do this!) You are responsible for knowing your delivery schedule. Because the internet is not always reliable, there is a chance that you may not receive an email. If you want to check to see if you have an order, just log into your account and/or email or call us.

The produce comes in a Rubbermaid container with lid, so you don't need to be home when we deliver. The driver will leave it on your porch or otherwise designated area (if you are in an apartment, be specific when you sign up).

Then we will collect the empty on your next delivery day when we leave a new one. (So please have your empty out for pick up!!)

The bin contains a balanced selection of the best seasonal fruits and vegetables we can find that week! Because we choose only the best, the selection may change throughout the week.

Where does our Produce Come From?
We are very particular about what goes in our bins each week and we have made it a point over the years to get to know the farms and (labels) that we buy from.

Our produce comes from Washington, Oregon, and California primarily. We always buy seasonally, so you will not find melons or corn for instance, in our bins in the winter.

Throughout the year we make it a priority to include locally grown produce 1st, and then when needed to make our bins balanced and complete, we include citrus, avocados, fresh greens and lettuces , etc. from California, and sometimes Mexico. We will always identify what is grown locally.

We procure our produce in 3 different ways, and not necessarily in this order: 1st, through two different wholesalers, one here in Washington, and one in Oregon, who both have networks of local farms that they buy produce from which in turns makes it possible for us to buy from, 2nd, through Small Farm Cooperatives & 3rd, direct from the grower.

The ABC's of Fresh: (Don't clean produce until you are ready to use it)
Some fruits emit ethylene, an odorless, colorless gas that speeds ripening and can lead to the premature decay of nearby ethylene-sensitive vegetables. Put spinach or kale in the same bin as peaches or apples, and the greens will turn yellow and limp in just a couple of days. So the first trick is to separate produce that emits ethylene from produce that's sensitive to it.

REFRIGERATE THESE GAS RELEASERS: (Melons should only be refrigerated when they are ripe)

DON'T REFRIGERATE THESE GAS RELEASERS: (Unless they are already ripe)
Bananas, unripe

Bananas, ripe
Brussels sprouts
Lettuce and other leafy greens
Sweet potatoes

Never refrigerate potatoes, onions, (this does not include the spring onions with greens) winter squash or garlic. Keep them in a cool, dark, dry cabinet, and they can last up to a month or more.
