It’s no secret I love to cook which means I love food! I really love to entertain and cook for friends and family and love to try new and exciting things. Recently a friend of mine used my home for an event and as a “Thank You” gave me a gift card to this new business here in DFW that I was unaware of. They are originally from Austin and just expanded here to the Metroplex. After checking out the website, I flipped with excitement! This concept is so cool and it supports local farmers!
Imagine getting fresh, organic food delivered to your doorstep every week knowing the food is fresh and from local farmers in our area. Great food AND supporting local farms? Brilliant! I am hooked on Greenling and absolutely love the whole idea. You have the option of shopping like you normally would for groceries or you can also do what I have chosen to do and that is get the weekly “Local Box”. The Local Box is delivered weekly to your doorstep with a variety of fresh fruits and veggies. For example here was this weeks list of ingredients in the Local Box:
- Lettuce – Walnut Creek Farm/ Wolf Creek Farm
- Red Potatoes – Walnut Creek Farm
- Spinach Bunch – Texas Daily Harvest
- Avocado – G&S Groves
- Orange – G&S Groves
- Onion Bunch – Lightsey Farm
- Radishes – Just Peachy Farm
- Beets/Broccoli – Lightsey Farm/Walnut Creek Farm
- Crimini Mushrooms- Kitchen Pride
- Turnips – Lightsey Farm
All this for $34.99. Oh and if some of the items you normally don’t buy or wouldn’t know what to do with, no worries because every box also comes with suggested recipes for all the ingredients. It really is a GREAT concept. I am so excited as this will not only be convenient and save a trip to the store each week, but it will also allow me to try new foods I might not otherwise choose to buy and I get to experiment in the kitchen. Anyway, I LOVE IT! Can’t wait for next Tuesday and my big green tub to arrive.
