GrubMarket is a food delivery service that aims to provide accessibility in the form of unbeatable prices, convenience, and food discovery. They keep their prices low to make it possible for people at all income levels to get fresh food. They also want to bring high-quality, freshly-harvested items to areas without farmers' markets or grocery stores, and have free delivery for orders above $59. Small producers can have access to GrubMarket's customers, and customers have access to niche products, with a marketplace that connects buyers and sellers.
I recently had a chance to try out a GrubMarket box, and it was fun. We had some standard produce - pineapple, oranges - and some produce we don't often buy - pomegranate, blood orange, avocado. The girls had fun with the blood oranges, calling them zombie oranges when their fingers turned colors from the juice. It was also their first chance to see a pomegranate whole (I had never pointed it out in the grocery store before). The avocado was the hardest to use, but it provided for some really fun stories when we told the girls how we used to puree avocados and mix it with yogurt, since they were such picky eaters and we needed to get some calories in them!
The prices are definitely not as cheap as conventional, and I have been able to get organic produce on sale for less than the prices online, but the prices are better than non-sale prices would be, and if you don't have a store near you, it's worth ordering online instead of driving a ways away. If you're busy, it's worth the price for the convenience as well!
I have a chance to give away a box. To enter, leave a comment with the fresh produce you'd most like to see in the box. Deadline is February 15th.
