Orders MUST fill and buy the case BEFORE it is purchased, so orders do NOT mean you will get the items.

Share is: To be determined ETC.

Caveat on Pricing:

When I get the items at the wholesaler I inspect them. When I get them back to my store sort them and weigh the remaining produce. At that point I may change the price. This is because there can be more or less counted items in the box than I assumed in calculating the price And/Or there may be more or less weight as well.

The Introduction Information ( used to be at the top ):

The Produce Club

produceclub.us

send email toritter.alan88@gmail.com for weekly item and price list.

And to “order” from this list.

For 02/28/2019 pickup ( and the weekend )

We buy from wholesale sources.

We buy Firsts (#1) and Seconds (#2). This saves you money. And reduces food waste.

Be precise when you order. Ask me if you are confused.

Confirm an appointment to pick up ( time and day ) when you order.

(small aside for new folks): email me directly with questions.

There is no minimum order with the Club ever. Buy only what you can use.

If that means one apple, then buy one apple.

If you are making a big order you need an account. Email me.

I suggest just making an appointment and shopping a la carte to meet me.

I mention case sizes sometimes, because unless the Club as a whole buys it all I won’t order it.

The pickup location is:

321 Cattell Ave Collingswood NJ 08107

It is in the garage of the house.

The house has a trampoline.

I ask that you park at the curb and walk back. if you are picking up a large amount we can pull your car back.
