Have you ever come home from work to find a box by your front door? Maybe it’s the new pair of shoes your ordered or, perhaps less exciting, it’s a replacement piece for the dishwasher? Nope, it’s a beautiful box of fresh produce. Wonder how it got there?
Over the last couple of months, The Clean Food Club rode around town with Colin Dinnie, delivery driver for Boston Organics, as he drove from house to house delivering fresh produce and other sustainably sourced culinary delights. We also poked around their warehouse and talked to The Kitchen Garden, one of their fresh produce vendors. In Meet the Veggieman, The Clean Food Club gives you an inside look at a Boston-based organic produce delivery service.
Boston Organics works with mostly local vendors to gather fresh produce and deliver it right to your door, and everything sourced is 100% organic. Customers can choose to add on other items like bread, coffee, and maple syrup, and also a recipe card with ideas for what to do with that week’s box. Boston Organics is like a cross between a meal delivery kit and a CSA, and it’s available all over Boston, Cambridge, Waltham, Burlington and more.
