In today's world, people are being stretched to their limits and have to find more ways to stretch that dollar. People are becoming very creative about food buying strategies. From farmers' markets to food co-ops to the charitable food co-op, each challenges us to be more conscientious about where our food is coming from, how old it is, and how to properly clean, prepare, and store it in order to minimize the cost and maximize the health benefits from consuming them.
The produce is distributed through the city every weekend, usually in a church parking lot. People can either bring their own basket or can use one of the boxes available. Annual memberships are available, but individuals can simply show up at any of the scheduled events throughout the Phoenix Metro area with $10.
Better bring a large basket or an extra pair of arms to help carry the load. During my visit, I received a rather large and beautifully ripe Tuscan Melon, Honeydew Melon, 4 containers of Roma Tomatoes On The Vine, 4 containers of Sunburst Golden Cherry Tomatoes, 4 bags of Cherry Tomatoes On The Vine -with 4 .75 OFF coupons, 6 beautifully red medium Bell Peppers, several Zucchini and Squash, and Pickling Cucumbers.
