Door to Door Organics, a delivery service with a rotating lineup of organic and locally grown fruits, veggies, and groceries, ships soil-sprouted treasures right to customers' doors each week. Thanks to personal and professional relationships with local farmers, Door to Door Organics is able to offer a produce menu that changes weekly depending on what's in season, ensuring crisp, fresh goodies right off the farm. Start by choosing a Bitty box of heart-healthy fruits, veggies, or both. A recent menu for a Bitty mixed box included a medley of gala apples, romaine lettuce, red beets, broccoli, bartlett pears, bananas, avocados, and kiwi—a veritable cornucopia as fresh and diverse as freshly reaped census data. Sustenance seekers will receive reminder emails highlighting the week's freshest organic selections each Friday, at which time customers may make up to five substitutions per box.

In 1962, Val Camilletti began working at Capitol Records, which was ushering in a new era of music, led by The Beatles and The Beach Boys. Ten years later, she opened her own retail record shop, which has spent 40 years distributing eclectic sounds to listeners who, Val says, "are tired of shopping for music in refrigerator stores."
At Val's, you'll find vinyl records lined up in tidy rows and rock posters on the walls. Its expansive, rotating stock features several musical genres and spotlights burgeoning local artists. Knowledgeable staff can also help customers hunt down rare issues, imports, or B-sides. If a record is not in the store inventory, Val's can order it within 24 to 48 hours, depending on how fast they can wake up Keith Richards.
