Special Delivery

Fresh Picks produce If you live too far from the Green City Market, why not let the market come to you? Irv & Shelley's Fresh Picks delivery will bring a box full of fresh, seasonal and (mostly) locally grown vegetables to your door once a week or once every two weeks (or on any random Thursday, if you want to order just once to see if you like it.) I received a bimonthly subscription as a birthday gift, and recently I found on my doorstop a box full of this pile of green things pictured above: ramps, scallions, asparagus, spinach, sunchokes and sorrel. My favorite part is getting things I would never have chosen on my own (sorrel?) and figuring out what to do with them. Check out the website to find out if delivery is available in your neighborhood, and never feel bad about missing the farmer's market again.

Irv & Shelly's is the best organic delivery service! The best part is that it's year round, so when I was going through Green City Market withdrawal, I knew that fantastic fruits and veggies would still land on my doorstep.

I have used and enjoyed Irv & Shelley's with one exception - the minimum purchase price ($35 I believe). Sometimes I'd like to order just one Fresh Picks box, but cannot get away with it without adding a bunch of other stuff. I guess it does make sense with transportation costs & all, but annoying anyway and a bit of a hindrance.

Their meats are great btw, and totally worth the price.
