Get local produce

Produce Box

My Produce Box This Week

This picture shows my box of local, organic fruits and vegetables that I get delivered right to my house.  Check your local area for CSA options.  You may have to do a little digging, but they are out there!  You can go to www.localharvest.org to get started.

It is really fun to get my box every week because it is always different.  I love opening it up and thinking about what I am going to cook up with it all.  I can feel good about the food I am eating and that I am contributing to sustainable agriculture by buying from my local farms.

If you live in my area (West Cobb County/Marietta, GA), here are some other options for local produce:

www.naturesgardendelivered.com – (the one I currently use) delivered right to your door weekly, bi-weekly or monthly

www.grassfedcow.com – includes grass fed beef, vegetables, fruit, etc.  Pick up location in Acworth, GA

www.farmersmarketbaskets.com – pick up at their warehouse in Kennesaw, Brookstone, Echo Mill, etc.
