At some point I'm sure you've run across a farm fresh to you box; a cardboard box with black print. A few months ago there was a groupon coupon for a farm fresh to you box for 50% off. For $15 we could get a box of fruits and veggies worth $31.50. We bought the coupon since we head to farmer's market every week and spend about $8-$10 for produce each time. Considering the amount of stuff we end up coming home with, it's well worth it.
So this week we skipped farmer's market since we received our farm box. In the box was the following: 1 honeydew melon, 1 pint cherry tomatoes, 3 plums, 3 pluots, 3 oranges, 1 head of broccoli, 4 corns, 1 cucumber, 1 thing celery, 1 head of lettuce, and some basil.
I like how customizable their program is; you can go through herbs, vegetables, and fruits, and pick which ones you definitely don't want in your box. However, I feel like I could have bought the same amount of items for $15 or less if I had gone to the farmer's market myself. No way would I pay $31.50 for what I got. Sure, convenience is something people are willing to pay for, and sure, everything in the box was organic, but I'm not willing to spend that much just because it's organic. Others may have a different take on this, but this service is overpriced for me.
