How to buy bulk fruits, herbs and vegetables from Mariquita Farm.
Example of a Fall/Winter Mystery Box
WHAT is a Mystery Box?: They are $25/each:
A 'Mystery Box' is like a csa box... except you don't pay ahead... and we don't really know everything that's going to be in it until that day. Winter boxes have to be a bit more "mysterious" in the winter. Will it frost? Will it rain? Will it be 80 degrees? Winter veggies have to be stronger and more substantial to survive in the field, and the winter box is a little heavier and more substantial too. Then again, the winter mystery box comes less frequently, and the ingredients that compose it often have a longer shelf life in the refrigerator.
I post a PDF docucment here of the items in the box the morning of delivery, with a few recipes. This page will also have the historical links of past newsletters, for your reference. Sample newsletter. These boxes are designed for people who cook.
