{ Bountiful Basket }

Recently a friend of mine told me about this food co-op called Bountiful Basket. Basically you get on their website ( and sign up and every Monday you place your order for your "basket". Baskets cost only $15.00 or $25.00 for a 100% organic basket. You then go to your chosen pick-up location on Saturday and retrieve your "basket". Let me tell you, it is SO worth every penny! You get so much fresh food for the money...easily over $50 worth had you gone to a typical market/store. Last weekend Geoff and I picked up out basket and it had....

8 Apples
8 Oranges
2 Giant bags of Red Grapes
1 Large carton of Strawberries
4 Grapefruit
1 Pineapple
1 Cantalope
6 Large Carrots
1 Head of Romaine Lettuce
1 Package of Cherry Tomatos
1 Package of Mushrooms
2 Crowns of Broccoli
4 Sweet Potatoes

Plus we paid an extra $7 and got the Mexican Pack which came with...

4 Avocados
6 Large Tomatoes
4 Cloves of Garlic
1 Pack of Cilantro
6 Jalapenos
5 Limes
4 Green Onions
4 White Onions

And for $10 you can add on 5 loaves of Whole Wheat bread which I hear is delicious. Serioulsy where else can you get that much fresh food for $22. I strongly urge everyone to check it out. The great thing is your basket is different every week and it's always produce thats in season so you get to try alot of items you might never purchase at the store! I think they currently have offerings in Idaho, Utah,Arizona, and Washington, and maybe more. However I know if you are interested in it for your town you can contact the gals and try to get one up and running!I know one thing for sure...we will be for sure purchasing our basket next Monday!
