The Community Food Co-op of Utah Delivers!

Coop Share

So Saturday was co-op pickup day and check out what I got.  I couldn’t be bothered to arrange it beautifully, so all you get is a photo in the box, but check out my friend Jen’s blog for a more aesthetically pleasing experience.  As you can see, we got lots of great food.  The produce was quite impressive.  We cooked the pork spareribs on Sunday and they were phenomenal (I’ll take some credit for that).

Picking up the order was great.  I showed up at Centro Hispano in Provo and they had some tables set up with boxes of each food item.  They gave me a box and a list of what I was to take, based on my order.

I HIGHLY recommend that you try the co-op.  You won’t be disappointed.  June promises to be even better because now, in addition to the other shares, you can buy a Farmer’s Market share!  Apparently the co-op has a contract with a local farm that grows vegetables to organic standards (I don’t believe it is certified though).  A little bird told me that the farm is East Farms, which runs a CSA, but does not have a pickup in Utah County.  What a great way to get fresh local food.  These shares are limited so don’t put off ordering.  In fact, I’d probably better place my own order before I publish this post.
