Bountiful Baskets!

White baskets held fruits, green baskets held veggies...

I have been wanting to try Bountiful Baskets Co-Op for some time now, and finally after sampling their delicious bread (thanks Alicia!) decided to give it a try on my own. I tried to sign up last week but the location by my house wasn’t available, but this week it was. Paid $15 for the fruit and veggies and $10 for the 5 loaves of bread.

 

Got all this for $15

In my baskets I got:
1 head Romain Lettuce
1 head Cabbage
1 head Celery
3 Tomatoes
4 Potatoes
2 Green Peppers

 2 lbs Black Seedless Grapes
2 lbs Peaches (7 total)
16 oz container of Strawberries
2 lbs Plums (19 total)
4 lbs Bananas (9 total)
6 lb Melon

I priced it out as if I would have gotten it from the grocery store this week, and it would have cost about the same at Sprouts, and about $7 more at Fry’s. It was very nice to be able to just show up and pick it up and not have to worry about going to a bunch of different stores to get the best pricing! Now I know that sometimes you get stuff you may not want and/or eat, but for my first time participating I am very happy. 

Awesome 9 grain bread! $2/loaf

Also got 5 loaves of their awesome 9-Grain bread for $10. You would probably pay at least $2.50/loaf or more in the grocery store.

And the best part is, you get all of this locally so you are supporting your local farmers and ulitmately local economy! Yay!

    We got a different melon than you did! It’s called a Santa Claus melon, I’m excited to try it.
