Love them, wish for an organic option
By: Lauren Freda (Dec 21, 2011)
Pros: Delivery! Fresh, local produce, and you fill out a short form to tell them what you'd like the most/least of: I get nothing I hate, and nothing I'm allergic to. I love that! Very nice to work with. The delivery family usually dropped things off (at work, at the front desk) unseen, but when I finally caught one she refused to take a tip. As others have noted, the baskets are gorgeous, which makes them a fantastic gift option. HUGE quantities mid-season. I got a "small" basket every other week and couldn't pawn enough off on friends and family.
Cons: no organic option, but at least they can only use USA-legal pesticides. (south american tomatoes and bell peppers can have additional nasties on them). The beginning and end of the season can be a bit pitiful with meager quantities of less flavorful produce, so plan accordingly and try not to panic if week 1 isn't all you had hoped. There were a few delivery mix-ups in the beginning, but all to air-conditioned offices that looked me up and contacted me right away, so the produce didn't suffer.
