just joined Los Poblanos Organics

I remember recently reading that there are no grocery stores downtown, and having just went into the warehouse and joined Los Poblanos Organics I am wondering if people in that area know about them. They will deliver for a small additional charge (it is about $25 a week for excellent quality produce) and you can pre-order organic milk, eggs and meat. No shop-worn vegetables, I am very picky and I was very pleased with the quality. Friends in Placitas say that joining Los Poblanos Organics has changed the way they eat for the better, and cut way down on car usage. One more thing you can do for yourself, the community and the environment. With the odd trip to the co-op it should make urban life more pleasant.

I had one of the apples this afternoon- quite tasty.

LPO and the Co-Op seem to have different purposes, both of which are worthwhile. Even between the two plus upcoming farmer's markets all our produce needs aren't going to be met, but it's a good start.

Celine, you might want to check out this thread for some varying insight on LPO.

Enjoy your produce!

I joined LPO yesterday. All of the talk of LPO vs. CO-OP made me wonder. I will let you know how the produce is even if it is trucked in from California.

I also love the LP for many many reasons and urge everyone to give them a try. You'll be amazed at how good the produce is. Way better than grocery store veggies. Check out the Victory Garden cookbook for great chard/collards/beets recipies along with the other obscure veggies you may get from LP.

It's the obscure my family enjoyed. Going online and researching what it was or recipes for it was fun for the kids. My favorite part in the winter was to see how many ingredients from the box I could use to form one meal. LPO is catching on for many and the new locations prove it.

Happy Healthy eating everyone!

Yeah!!! I just got my first LPO box delivered to my job (El Pinto). I kept wondering how it would come. I was imaginiang and old, red chevy pick-up truck filled with all sorts of vegetables ( I guess that Hidden Valley Ranch commercial biased me) and a handsome farmer would give me my wooden box. I am assuming it didn't because I did not see the truck or person that delivered it and the box was cardboard. I opened it the see turnips, strawberries, raddishes, kiwi, carrots, etc. I got jealous looks from my co-workers. They are probably signing up right now. I immediatly peeled an orange and got juice on my keyboard. It was great. I will let you know if I make anything interesting. The strawberries will not make it to the end of the day.
