The Local Box
Our most popular item
The Local Box is the only basket you can't customize - it's a selection of super fresh, all local and sustainably grown produce straight from local farms. Contents rotate weekly and sometimes even daily! We'll send a list of items in the box and where they came from, along with recipe ideas for using all the local goodness you'll receive that week. Here's a link to a PDF with this week's recipes, if you'd like a head start on your shopping list.
Selection of the freshest produce items available hand-picked by Greenling. Only local, in-season, organic or sustainably grown produce is used. Quantity & items may vary as availability can change daily and basket changes every week.

Ordering is Easy
Don't be intimidated! Everyone can enjoy a different box each week of fresh, in-season fruits and veggies. Here's an easy way to tackle it:
1. Order alone or add other items.
The Local Box contents change every week and sometimes every day. You're getting only the best local, in-season produce each week! You can add items to your order a la carte to get exactly the groceries you need. However, you can't remove or change the contents of the the Local Box. If you'd like more than just fruits and veggies in your order, shop from our extensive selection of a la carte grocery items. You might also like the Farmstead Box-- a weekly selection of three local snack, pantry, or prepared foods items.
2. Order it weekly, bi-weekly, or just occasionally!
No commitments, upfront fees, or contracts. Just get one anytime you like!
3. Use recipes in the box or on social media.
