Produce and Food Co-Op in Utah

Tuesday, June 15, 2010 |
Have you heard of Food and Produce Co-Ops? They are groups that use collective buying power of all their participants to purchase at up to 50% below retail value!!! I was amazed when I heard that it was even possible to save 50% on produce (and not have to grow it myself to save that much). With coupons, I was savings lots at the grocery store on the other items we needed but we eat a TON of fruit and veggies at my house. Due to produce not having coupons (with rare exception) that part of our bill never has changed much. So, when I heard about this I was so excited. There are lots of local farms in the state that run in co-op form. Some vary with certain amounts of hours to be given as volunteer time and amounts of pick up locations. The one that my own family has used is called Bountiful Baskets. They have locations all over the state. It currently cost $15.00 for a basket that is LOADED with fruits and veggies. I generally had a produce bill of $25 or more, and even with that total I was not bringing home the same large amount as a basket is from this site is full of. So, if your looking to cut costs on more than just the coupon items a Co-op can be a great way to do it. Because they are run by volunteers they can also be a great way to meet new friends who enjoy feeding their families lots of fresh stuff! Some co-ops also offer grocery items and meat and bread.

There is another co-op I have had friends work with called the Community Food Co-Op of Utah. They have also had great experiences and loved being able to purchase great food for their families for so much less.

To find a local farm near you there is a great site called

Did you know there was options besides growing it yourself or purchasing at the grocery store price? Have you found a local farm near your home you love? We would love to hear about them if you have!

Boooo! I waited to long and now all the baskets for this Saturday are gone. Maybe next time. In the meantime, I am going to do something I've been meaning to do for a long time: visit the Provo Farmer's Market on Saturday!
