So what to do if your attempts at container gardening are an epic fail…or while you wait to see if the plants that you do plant actually turn out successful…or if you simply don’t want to go to the trouble of planting your own….or if you don’t have the space to even attempt to grow your own fruits and vegetables….or if you can’t make it to your farmer’s market’s Saturday-morning-only hours…or if you are looking for more variety than what you yourself would even attempt to grow.
Thankfully there are large-scale online organic grocery delivery services and subscription boxes that you can join that will deliver an assortment of organic fruits and veggies to your door to fill in these gaps by sending organic, all-natural produce and products right to your door.
What a convenience, right?!
The only problem perhaps with joining one of these subscriptions if that unfortunately you won’t be able to choose which fruits and vegetables you end up getting…(it’s their choice, not yours…so you can’t be picky)…
But here is a list of a few to consider…
Goal…to provide fresh fruits and vegetables from farms local to Phoenix, AZ
- The Essential Family…basic produce for four people
- The Family Gourmand…same as The Essential Family, but comes with a few more unusual fruits or vegetables
- The Juicemaker
- The Breakfast Box…seasonal fruits and fresh granola
Reach…offers weekly delivery to Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, Mesa, and other areas in Arizona…as well overnight delivery both to other areas in Arizone and nationwide
Door to Door Organics
Reach…several locations across the country, including Colorado, Kansas City, Chicago, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware
Green Polka Dot Box
What…an online grocery store and buying collective that offers lower prices on brands such as Newman’s Own, Annie’s, Sprout, Tom’s of Maine, and more
Goal…to bring not only organic fruits and vegetables…but also other organic and natural products—including snacks, condiments, baking supplies, and more
How…either a $50-annual Club Membership or a $125-annual Rewards Membership
How…you design your own Harvest Box by choosing…
- how frequently you want to get groceries delivered
- how much you want to spend
- whether you want to buy local goods only…local goods over a variety of items…or variety over source
Groceries…also sells canned goods, baby food, sustainably-raised meat and household supplies such as organic cat food and cleaning spray
