 All of this was just half of my weekly budget. All of this I was able to afford for myself on a limited budget. Fresh, healthy produce at a very reasonable price. Food co-ops are becoming so in demand they are popping up all over. I love, love, love this!

I’ve known about food co-ops for years. Although, the ones I’ve known have been more like a small market. This process was so streamlined, I just went on their site, signed up. Printed my confirmation and showed up at the designated time with my own bags. After standing in line for not very long, I checked in and was given my produce to bag myself. Done. Simple. Efficient. Affordable. By setting up this way it’s become even more economical.

I had to take a picture of this – doesn’t it all look beautiful with my bread sitting in front!

This is what got today:
Red potatoes, approx 3 2/3lb
Tomatoes, about 2 1/2lb (7)
Bananas, 2 1/2lb (5)
Apples, 2lb (5)
Blackberries 6oz
Lettuce, green leaf, 1 bunch
Spinach, 1 bunch
2 Mango
3 Avocado
11 Apricots
1 Honeydew melon
1 Pineapple

Total $15
Weekly charge 1.50
First time set-up 3.00

All I can say is, if you have a food co-op or CSA available to you in your area – JOIN. It is so, so worth it!
