Grocery stores are laden with packaged foods and produce lacking in nutritional value. Did you know that most grocery produce is at minimum a week old by the time it arrives at the store? Your local farmers market is the best source of fresh produce and wholesome foods, but if you’re pressed for time, these delivery services can help keep your kitchen stocked with nutrient-rich and delicious food.
Farm Box LA
Los Angeles, CA
What’s great about Farm Box LA in particular is their support of local farmers known to have some of the best produce around, such as Weiser Farms and Tutti Fruitti. You can be sure you’ll get ripe produce that is in season and therefore tastes as good as it gets.
In addition to Fruit & Veggie Boxes, they have a variety of other options, including the Complete Farm Box (includes grass-fed meats, a balanced mix of produce, dairy products, bread, fresh juice and local artisanal goods). Specialty boxes like Juicing Boxes and Crossfit/Paleo are also available. Deliveries can be customized to fit your preferences, and each box includes a weekly newsletter with recipes.
The thing that makes Farm Box LA even more special is their eco-sustainable business practices. Deliveries are packed in reusable produce bags and baskets to eliminate waste.
They also provide services such as taking leftover produce to a food bank or farms for composting. They can even turn your leftovers into jams and preserves if you like!
