What is a produce co-op? It’s where you join with others to buy your produce-getting you a better price and eliminate the grocery store. This can be fun because you pay the same amount each time you pick up produce (giving you a fixed cost in your budgeting) and you get fun things to try and/or more expensive items you wouldn’t normally buy. Some that I’ve received have been persimmons and white asparagus-both delicious and both I would never have bought on my own! Some even have an organic option if you’re into that sort of thing. The downside to a food co-op is that you don’t have a say in what you get so you have to work your meals around what you get-not the other way around. Still, it’s fun to throw it in every once in a while!
