Love the FDC!
By: Jennifer Percy (Jul 27, 2014)
My husband and I have been members for about 9 or 10 years. We have settled on the small vegetable and large fruit shares as the right size for our 2-person, close-to-vegetarian household. It has introduced us to new veggies like kohlrabi, and given us a new appreciation for old familiar things like tomatoes and carrots, which are so much tastier when grown close by and picked the day before we get them.
One thing I especially appreciate about the FDC is that we get some choice about what foods we take home. If my own garden is heavily producing zucchini or green beans, I might be able to choose something else at the pick up. And a recent feature is a "swap" table for members to exchange something they don't like. For example, I can wander over with zukes I don't want and swap them for the head of cabbage that someone else didn't want. It's great!
We also get the bread share and the cheese share; both are delicious!
