Hello all - I copied the following post from www.ourfamilyzforever.blogspot.com. I am SO excited about this. Right now they are coming only every other week, so the next drop off is October 17. Hope someone benefits from this!
Hello! This post is for everyone living in Cedar City (and anyone else who might be interested!!)
Bountiful Baskets finally has enough people to start a "stop" here in Cedar City. Bountiful Baskets is a food co-op where they buy produce in bulk so it is cheaper for the rest of us!
Every other week, they come to Cedar City to the drop-off location and you get a box/laundry basket FULL of produce for $15.
This is what I got this week!
And here's the breakdown:
8 Granny Smith Apples
8 Red Plums (So delicious!)
2 heads of Romaine Lettuce
3 heads of broccoli
1 bag of Seedless Red Grapes (the best I've ever had!)
10 lbs. of potatoes
2 bunches of bananas
(and a partridge in a pear tree! j/k)
Overall, this was 45 LBS OF PRODUCE!!
Also, each week they do this you can "opt in" for different things too. For example, this week there was an option for a 40 lbs case of pears for $12 extra. (Not a bad deal!!)
They also have options for breads (5 loaves for $10!) and some "Asian packs" with different kinds of "Asian" vegetables to make stir-fry, etc.
I am SOOOO excited about this (if you can't already tell!)
Also, the MORE people they get to do this in Cedar City, the MORE stuff you get in your basket. For example, this week had there been more than 14 people in Cedar that signed up they would have added cucumbers and raspberries!!
So, here is my shameless plug for Bountiful Baskets! To sign up, go to their website: www.bountifulbaskets.org . Each week they do this there is a deadline. If you go get on their mailing list, they will email you each week ( I think...this is the first week I've done it...) and let you know what the "offerings" are for that week.
TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN CEDAR!!
For those not in Cedar, there are other location in Arizona (tons in AZ) and a lot in N. Utah as well as a brand new stop in Malad City, Idaho (Brittney?). Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them. (or find out from the coordinator here in Cedar!)
