Winter Produce Share

gccwps.jpgDon't miss your chance to have a fully stocked kitchen this winter. Green Grocer Chicago, 1402 W. Grand Ave., is offering its winter/spring produce share, starting on Jan. 17. Each subscription is $17 per week for a single share or $29 per week for a double share, both if which last for 17 weeks. Or, you have the option of only committing on a weekly basis if 17 weeks is a little bit too much of a good thing for you. Whichever plan you choose, you will be in support of local farms while strengthening your diet with freshly grown organic produce. And, better yet, if you pay in full at the store, you will receive 10 percent off the produce share price, as long as you make a payment before Saturday (1/7). Better hurry... only a couple days left! Call 312-624-6303 for more info.
