Meet my Bountiful Basket

Mmmm, fresh green beans! Really good ones too.

This week I ordered from Bountiful Baskets, a fruit and vegetable co-op with weekly Saturday deliveries of fresh produce.

For $15 I get a ton of fresh veggies and fruits. Approximately 50% vegetables and 50% fruits. They are as local as they can get for the season I am told. And the produce is excellent.

There are several spots to pick up your “basket” in Spokane. Check out the Bountiful Basket Site, basket pick up sites are available in many states. They even have organic baskets and weekly specials. This weeks special was 8 lbs of strawberries for $11, we took advantage of that and are in strawberry bliss, I just need to get my hands on some fresh rhubarb (oh how I swoon over rhubarb).

Reasons I think Bountiful Baskets are awesome

1. Saves $$$

2. Provides variety

3. Increases our fruit and vegetable intake

And Matt and I, when we put our mind to it can eat it all in one week. Mmmm, yum.

Here is a sample of the bounty. I’m conjuring up great recipes to use it all up this week, stay tuned!

    Laura do you know of any similar things in Tricities? Most of the CSA’s I’ve seen around here are kind of intense for two people!

    Oh wow! I have always wanted to check out Bountiful Baskets but always wondered what the veggies and fruit quality would actually be. Going to have to get one now for sure!
