VEGGIE BOX

Veggie Box is our subscription of fresh produce from RI and MA farms. It is designed to give eaters greater access to locally grown food and provide growers with a consistent sales outlet year-round. As of December 1, 2018, Veggie Box is on hold for the winter and spring seasons. This has been a difficult decision to make, because we believe strongly in the role Veggie Box can play in our local food system. We remain dedicated to our mission, and will continue to provide you with opportunities to help support local farmers and producers, and enjoy the locally grown bounty of our region.

Though this news may come as a surprise to some, we have been hearing from growers that this was a very difficult fall growing season, rife with both excess rain and drought-like conditions. This has left us uncertain of the supply to guarantee great boxes throughout the leaner months of the year. This will be a time of opportunity for us to reconsider how the program runs, with hope to reinvigorate it later this year. We will keep you informed about future developments.

WHAT'S INSIDE
PICKED FOR YOU, PACKED WITH LOVE
The contents of Veggie Box are picked by our knowledgeable staff working in partnership with local farmers to provide you the most delicious produce each season has to offer. Not only does this mean the freshest food on your table, it supports small farms by regularly placing large orders for what they have grown in abundance.
