Yes, a local community supported agriculture (CSA) program is our absolute favorite source for organic produce. And farmers markets are THE go-to for local food in season. But what if you don't have access to a local CSA? Or want seasonal foods all year round? AND delivered right to your door?
Enter organic produce delivery, especially ones that are done right -- sustainably grown and delivered.
We have been fortunate to participate in local CSAs for almost twenty years; however, for varying reasons, our options for a consistent source come and go. So over the last few years, we searched high and low for the "next best thing" and discovered more options are available but not for everybody. Our primary objective was to find organic produce delivery that allowed us to still support local/regional producers and is shipped as environmentally conscious as possible.
We reached out to organic food delivery services, tried a few and were thrilled to have found the best pick for us (
see below) satisfying our priorities for both organic and regional produce options all year long. We especially loved them because they offer so many options (Local Only, Organic/Sustainable, Veggies, Fruit, Mixed +Tiny, Small, Medium, Large) with the ability to customize each and every delivery by substituting from all the options any time. But alas, after delivering over 500,000 boxes of seasonal, regional produce they had to close.
** 2020 Update ** So... our search resumed. After enjoying a glorious 2019 season of local produce brought to us by a true local gem of a shop in our midst, Folk Apothic (and which I will write more about later), we were again in need of a consistent organic produce source. And huzzah, we found a great one (on several levels), may I introduce to you the amazing Misfits Market (learn more below). Get $10 off your Misfits Market first order with this code: COOKWME-GH4NZL

The What: An extra special subscription box for all organic, fresh, high quality fruits and vegetables delivered to your door weekly or every other week, small or large box options.
The Why: Misfits Market is the superhero of superfoods in disguise. They rescue produce that is unnecessarily rejected by grocery stores because it may not appear "picture-perfect" or "normal" or may be part of farmers' overstock. But it's always FRESH and organic! By doing so, they not only deliver delicious, nutritious produce to us but also pass along DEEP savings, up to 40% less than grocery store prices. This too provides organic farmers a new and additional market for their overstocks and (sometimes) funkier looking goods that conventional buyers won't purchase.
The How: You choose! Select from a small or large box of 12-14 varieties of fruits and vegetables. Some locations can now select, as in customize, which items they want in their beautiful bounties -- coming to all locations soon! Order weekly or every other week, or skip, pause and cancel your subscription as needed. They currently deliver to Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, Ohio, West Virginia, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee. They're growing fast, so be sure an join their waitlist if your state isn't available. Did I mention that shipping is only a flat rate of $4.50 to all locations (with the exception of TN and FL which is still a mere $5.50)?!
The Wow: As if amazing organic groceries delivered to your door isn't enough, Misfits Market is breaking the cycle of food waste, which generates tons of carbon dioxide making it the primary contributor to planet-harming emissions. We especially appreciate that they seek to support small to mid-size farmers and farmers' cooperatives. We're also super grateful they deliver to both urban AND rural areas, much needed and appreciated. To boot, they use compostable plant-based produce bags instead of plastic and recycled cardboard boxes and eco-friendly insulation. I could really go on and on, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give a specific shoutout to their truly amazing (and all too rare) prompt, courteous and helpful customer service team. Kudos!
