Children are eating more fruits and veggies these days, thanks to improved access to fresh produce and that horrifying Sesame Street episode where Elmo contracted scurvy. Bring healthful foods to your street with this Groupon.
$29 for Produce Delivery Package ($59.99 Value)
- One Original Value box of organic produce, enough to feed a couple or small family (a $34.99 value)
- Lifetime membership (a $25 value)
A typical Original Value box holds 14 to 18 varieties of fruits and vegetables, with one to three pieces of each variety. Depending on the season, the box may include carrots, red chard, arugula, green peppers, mangoes, pears, bananas, and other items; see each week's selection here. A delivery fee of $4.99 is not included with this Groupon. Urban Organic delivers once a week; click here to view the schedule.
Since Urban Organic is a subscription-based service, a credit or debit card is required to schedule delivery; you will not be charged unless you decide to subscribe to Urban Organic following your Groupon redemption. This offer is not valid for current Urban Organic subscribers.
Starting at two o'clock in the morning, trucks head out from Urban Organic's headquarters carrying boxes of organic, local produce to drop at doorsteps from the Bronx to Brooklyn and far-off lands such as Long Island and Connecticut. Each box holds a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables, such as apples, chard, arugula, and bananas, each certified organic by the USDA. Since the selection rotates weekly, an included newsletter introduces the produce to families with handy tips on storage, cooking, and conversation starters.
The handy subscription service visits each of its delivery zones once a week so urbanites have easy access to organic, locally grown meals. Families can also take advantage of lower price tags than those at local grocery stores or black markets, since Urban Organic buys in bulk from organic farmers' cooperatives and distributors.

A fantastic service for us. It actually lets us create meals around the delivery! I love that you can let them know what you don't wantNataliya B., Yelp, 7/13/10
