Should You Join a Food Co-op? A Review of Bountiful Baskets

I’m always looking for ways to save on organic produce, and this past week, my family decided to try something new: a food co-op.

A friend told me about a national food co-op called Bountiful Baskets. Here’s how it works: Go to their website and find out if there’s a pickup location in your area, then find out if your location is an “A” week or a “B” week. Bountiful Baskets offers produce pickup every other week. When your week rolls around, you place your order on the website. In my area, you can choose a box of conventional produce or organic produce and then choose from add-ons that change weekly, including bread, tortillas, and specialty fruits and vegetables (these usually aren’t organic).
