So if you're into eating more healthy (or would like to be)...participating in Bountiful Baskets Food Co-op can make the idea much more affordable.  It's kind of like a farmers market but you "contribute" (pre-order) on line and can choose the time and location for your pickup that works best for you.

Bountiful Baskets is a weekly event that occurs throughout Wyoming and many other participating states.  Via the Bountiful Baskets website, participants make a financial contribution on each Monday to be picked up on the following Saturday.

Here're some things you'll need to know...

  • You order via the Bountiful Baskets website on Monday (after 9:00 am) and pick-up that following Saturday.
  • You'll receive about $50 worth of fresh fruits and veggies for your $15 contribution
  • You don't know in advance exactly what you'll receive.  Enjoy the element of surprise!
  • It's a 100% volunteer effort and participants are encouraged to arrive an hour before their scheduled pickup time to help out when they can.
  • Make sure to bring something to carry your produce home in and your confirmation/receipt when you pick up.
  • Check out their website for more details and info!
