Produce co-op

One of the girls in my MOMS Club just started a produce co-op here and today was our first pick-up. All the produce was delivered to a local park and divided up between the co-op buyers. So, for $23 I got the following:

1 bunch of celery
2 bunches broccoli
8 bananas
1 head romaine lettuce
1 pineapple
12 granny smith apples (kid-size)
3 large white onions
1 bag grapes (large)
1 cantelope (small)
8 ears corn
1 pint blueberries
1 lb strawberries
5 tomatoes
8 oz mushrooms
4 bunches green onioins
2 lb carrots

My kids were begging for the fruit before we even got the box of stuff in the van lol.

Hey, Liz, did your friend do the coop through the lady on momslikeme? I saw a story on channel 5 last week about it. My friend up in Troy, MO is trying to get one started up there. The momslikeme lady is over near me in O'Fallon, MO. I was thinking about ordering. How often will you be ordering?

YES! It was through her. I am not sure how it all works but from what I understand they will be doing an order every 2 weeks and you can opt-in or out at any time so there is no commitment.
