Organic Produce Club

 

Why Eat Organic?

Whether you are interested in your health, the environment, wildlife or social justice, organic food is the way to go!

So much of our food supply is unnecessarily sprayed with chemicals. An organization has done some research and came up with “The Dirty Dozen:” twelve of the most contaminated fruits and vegetables.

Why Support Fair-Trade?

Fair-trade is a way of doing business that cuts out big multinational corporations and directly supports the small farmers who grow the product. It has positive effects on communities, the environment, and quality of life.

At the Produce Club, we import fair-trade tropical fruit (mangoes, bananas, etc) and vegetables whenever possible. Our produce supplier, Discovery Organics, has fair-trade partners in Mexico, Ecuador, and other places.

Great Fruit and Vegetables Every Week!

The produce club is a weekly grocery-purchasing service. The fruit and vegetables come from Discovery Organics, a great little Vancouver company that emphasizes organic and fair trade food at a reasonable price.

Every week we have a selection of quality produce, including fruit and vegetables. See Sample Bags below for details!

How It Works

The Produce Club is on a week-to-week basis. There is no long-term commitment required! Just come by the Bakery, sign up and indicate the desired quantity of groceries, and pick up your bag one week later.

Please place your order by closing time (6 pm) on Wednesday. Late orders can be prepared, however, the customer may not receive the full selection of the week.

On the Tuesday or Wednesday one week after placing your order, come by the Bakery to pick up your order. Payment is done at the front counter.

We will happily delete the foods you do not enjoy or double the ones you love. Just write your preferences on the signup sheet.

alpine-bakery-produce-club-3Quantities:

You specify the quantities of fruit and vegetables you need. If you want only fruit or only vegetables, no problem.

Customers often order a half & half bag: half fruit and half vegetables. This is a full paper shopping bag, enough to feed a small family for a week.

Larger families or people that like to cook a lot might want to order Full Orders. This is a large quantity of produce for a big family or institutional setting.

A “Bachelor Bag” is a simple order for people wanting quality but not necessarily variety. It has apples, bananas, oranges or pears, a green, a root vegetable and another veggie item. Basically, the “staple” items with 3 fruit and 3 veggies, instead of 5 or 6 options.

Feel free to discuss quantities with the front counter staff while placing your order.

Typical Prices

  • For the standard “half & half”(one bag of mixed fruit and veggies), price usually ranges $55 to $60.
  • Full orders (large!) of one whole bag mixed fruit and one bag mixed vegetables is about $90-110.
  • The “Bachelor Bag” (just the basics) costs between $25- $35.

 

Typical Produce Bags

Here are some sample bags. Selection varies according to the season.
