If you’re from Boston, you know it’s not all about baked beans and clam chowder. There are many of us looking for healthy and organic options. With grocery stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s offering natural and organic options, we are often asked how our service, pricing, and produce compare. We’ve put together a list of how our service differs from some of the common grocery stores around the Boston area.
- Lower operating costs allow us to price our produce competitively.
- Although wholesale prices fluctuate regularly, we’re able to deliver consistent pricing and value to our customers year after year.
- Because of our close relationships with growers we’re able to source hard-to-get local and organic produce that large stores just can’t buy.
- We do the dirty work for you - our produce buyers work tirelessly to fill each of your boxes with a great selection of fresh produce.
Sourcing process & relationships with growers
- We place an emphasis on sourcing local and organic produce whenever possible.
- We are a local food hub! We are helping re-build a healthy food system by purchasing and distributing food produced in New England.
- Our business model allows us to place orders months in advance, providing our network of growers with an unprecedented level of commitment and security.
We ONLY source 100% certified organic and Non-GMO produce – guaranteed
- Though many stores have organic offerings all of our produce is certified organic by the USDA.
- We are proud members of the Non-GMO Project and Northeast Organic Farmers Association.
Home delivery with no additional delivery fee
- Many local grocery stores now offer home delivery. However many charge delivery fees and require minimum orders. Unless we deliver above the third floor, our deliveries are always free - so a $29 box costs $29, period.
Local, independently owned company with local roots
- Locally owned and operated since 2002. Our warehouse and office is located in Charlestown, MA.
- We support local organizations all over the Great Boston area including large food donations to Food For Free of Cambridge, MA.
- We’re a proud member of the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts.
