Final Order for Friday, October 3

Thanks for "co-oping" with us! Your participation makes it possible to continue this endeavor. Please remember to bring your blue tote bags back to your host... and she will also welcome any clean reusable plastic bags!

Our order schedule will be changing slightly at the end of October. Please make note on your calendars that we will NOT have an order on Oct. 31. Our pick-ups will resume Nov 7 and 21 and Dec 5 and 19. This puts us into a better position with the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. So from Oct 17 to Nov 7 we will have a 3 week stretch.... oh well, I guess we'll just all have to go to the store!

As usual, Redlands will have homemade soaps, local honey and all natural fish dip available for purchase. Cutler Bay will also have fish dip available this week. Coral Gables will have honey available for purchase and will be able to sample the fish dip.

Final Order for Friday, Sept. 19

We're sorry there were no cucumbers (or grapes) available, again!! This was a challenging order to put together with inventory being spotty, hence the differences between groups. Looks like the berries may be over for the season, but apples are coming down in price!

Please remember to return your blue bags to your host and bring any clean, reusable plastic bags for use in dividing the veggies. All natural smoked fish dip is now available: Mahi, Salmon and Whitefish. Talk to your host if you're interested. It will be available for purchase in Cutler Bay and Redlands on Sept 19.
