Quick Reference Guide

The produce list for the following Monday is published on Thursday or Friday. Click on the button above for your pod. The top button will take you to the produce pick-up dates for each pod.

The produce list is usually accurate, but occasionally there may be a last-minute substitution due to the vendor being out of stock of a particular item.

Shared Bins

Occasionally some members find there is too much bounty in a full bin for their household, so they share with a “bin buddy”. Some members like to split everything down the middle while others prefer to take a particular item while leaving the entire amount of another item. For example, let’s say you and your bin buddy receive a pineapple and a cantaloupe. You might leave the pineapple, but keep the cantaloupe rather than cutting both in half at pick-up. Whichever option you choose, make sure you and your bin buddy have talked it over and agreed when not splitting evenly.
