We offer organic fruit and veggie boxes every Thursday to our members. Fresh produce is delivered in bulk to us on a Thursday morning and our volunteers pack the delicious goodies into individual boxes. All boxes are pre-ordered and prepaid. The exact content of the boxes varies from week to week, as we buy produce that is as seasonal, locally produced and as affordable as possible.
Boxes start at $15, and range up to the value of $75. All boxes must be pre-ordered and pre-paid by Tuesday 5pm, and picked up on that Thursday. If you order in-store on Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday during opening hours, your box will be packed the following Thursday. We offer $15 and $25 fruit only boxes, $15 and $25 veg only boxes and $25, $50 and $75 mixed fruit and veg boxes.
Boxes can be ordered and paid for during shop hours or online before Tuesday 5pm. If you are a current member of Thoughtful Foods you can sign up for the weekly reminder email that gives you access to the online bread and veggie box ordering system here.
Your box will be ready for pick up from 12noon on a Thursday, and should generally be picked up before 6pm. Let us know if you will be picking your box up later than 5pm (we are open until 7pm on Thursdays). If you do not collect your box and we cannot contact you, we will donate the box to a good cause such as Food Hub, as we unfortunately are not able to store the boxes overnight or off pick up on a different day. Remember to bring a bag with you take your veggies home in as the tubs the veggies are packed into need to stay at the co-op.. We also have reusable calico bags for sale. We strongly recommend all fruit and veg are carefully washed before they are eaten.
To order veggie boxes, you will need to become a member of the co-op. However, we do offer a one-off trial box to non-members which must be ordered in-store. For more information about membership, click here.
