(quick explanation of what a co-op is: It's a group of people who choose to purchase food as a group to save money)
This was everything I got, below are some closer pictures.
2 bags of green grapes
1 lb of strawberries
1bunch of bananas + 2 extra (I love them green, so they last longer)
1 pineapple (a little green so I can let it sit for a few days while we work on the other fruits and veggies)
8 Fuji and pink lady apples
2 large cucumbers
2 bunches of broccoli
3 heads of Romaine lettuce (I will need to use these fast - they won't last very long)
3 yellow squash
8 red potatoes
So here are the details - I am so glad I did this. I've been wanting to try out a co-op for a long time. I will definatley do this again, until my garden grows.
I went to http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/. Once there, the site is a little confusing - they mostly serve Arizona right now and are just opening up in Utah. (A little background: the people who provide the produce also deliver to restaurants so they are selling restaurant grade produce)
Look down the left hand column until you find Co-op Offerings.
Click on the picture and it will take you to another page where you choose your pick-up location, and what you'd like to order.
Submit that information with your credit card number and print your confirmation page (also good to bring with you in case they ask you for it)
Here's a couple of additional things to note:
1- This co-op is only every other week. So the next delivery will be on May 2nd.
2 - On May 2nd, they will open another site in Roy, Utah (North Park - I can give you directions if you need - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment). Currently they only have 3 sites, Brigham City, Clearfield and Roy (next time).
3 - You are not committed to anything, if you want to participate, you sign up each week.
4 - The first time you participate you are charged and additional $3.00 for the baskets they use to seperate the orders for everyone - these baskets are not to keep, they are for the organizers of the co-op to use each time.
5 - I also paid a $1.50 handling fee and I'm not sure if that is everytime or not.
6 - I paid $15.00 for the produce I picked up (with the addition of the basket charge and handling fee, $19.50 total)
7 - I had the option to also purchase a 40lb box of Washington Pink Lady apples, an Italian Food pack (which was more veggies - I saw mushrooms, but didn't see what else this package had), a 5 pack of Honey Wheat Sandwich bread, a 3 pack of Raisin Cinnamon Round loafs, and a 4 pack of European Rye Oval loafs.
8- I was also told not to be late. Even if you've paid, they will leave if you don't show up on time. Arriving early definatley had it's advantages of being one of the first to pick and being allowed to get a few extra's. It's purely volunteer and some had been there since 5:00 am setting up. My pickup was at 7:00 am.
Each week will bring new and different produce. You never know what you will get and how much - I guess that's why it's fun. I get to try new things or things I would not have picked up at the store.
I hope you found the details of my experience helpful. I had always wondered how these got put together and now I know. Hopefully I'll see you there next time!
