Organic produce delivery is to L.A. culture what pizza delivery is everywhere else: a bare necessity. Who has time to scour farmers markets or visit the grocery store in the morning when the organic produce gets stocked? Not surprisingly, this business idea has taken a firm root in Los Angeles. Of course, when it comes to natural food delivery, L.A. is picky.
Spud: Local Food Movement
If a weekly harvest box delivered to your door signs like a grand idea, this is the organic produce delivery service that can make it happen. The produce is local and recently picked; ordering takes a bit of calendar watching. If you place your order by 9:00 a.m. one day ahead of delivery day, you will qualify for in-stock items. All other food choices need to be ordered by 9:00 a.m. two days ahead of schedule.
Of course, there is more to Spud than just fruits and veggies; try specialty waters, bakery goods and meat as well fish choices. Keep your eyes peeled for weekly specials that can really reduce the food bill. Featuring a little bit of everything, shopping with Spud can eliminate the need for the weekly grocery run and fill up the pantry with healthier food choices.
Karma Chow: Already Prepared Food – Delivered
If organic produce delivery sounds good but getting an already cooked food delivery sounds even better, Karma Chow is the business you have been waiting for. Establishing itself in L.A culture since 2010, this food delivery is available only in the central Los Angeles area.
At $18 per meal, the convenience of having a gourmet dish prepared from locally grown organic ingredients is a steal. The minimum order is five meals; be sure to get your requests in before 7:00 a.m. on Sunday to get the food on Monday. This is a great opportunity to play around with foods you might not normally dare include in on your menu.
Farm Fresh: Local, Organic, No Frills and to Your Door
Initially the produce hailed only from Capay Valley but when seeking to expand into Southern California to capitalize on farming opportunities year round, the farmers behind Farm Fresh discovered the Imperial Valley. This is a no frills and no specialty foods kind of delivery.
Straight forward, an organic produce delivery consists of in-season fruits and veggies sent to your door. Produce is harvested, cleaned and packed for shipping. Choose by box size and specify what leafy greens or other veggies you never ever want to see crossing your doorstep.
The growers handle the rest. The mix of fresh produce is perfect for the raw foodie or the health-conscious cook who cannot help but wonder how strawberries can grow in the dead of winter.
