$69 for a 2013 and 2014 Organic Grocery Co-op Membership ($127 Value)
Valid through all of 2013 and 2014, the grocery co-op membership (a $48 value per year) grants members access to weekly market bags filled with fresh meat and produce. The bags’ contents vary according to the season, and prices range from $20 to $35 on average. Members place their order by Friday at 6 p.m. and then pick up their food on Monday between 6 and 8 p.m. The membership also includes an essentials bag featuring five handcrafted seasoning blends, a 4-ounce jar of salt, a 2-ounce jar of white pepper, 1 pound of organic rolled oats, a bean-soup kit, and a trio of organic veggies. All seasoning blends and the soup kit are Anner’s Pantry originals.
Every day of the summer, the backdoor of Anner's Pantry swings open to accept boxes of fresh, fragrant vegetables from organic farms. Out front, an herb garden has overtaken the lawn. Inside, the staff sorts organic produce, meats, poultry, fish, and dairy products. To help their members streamline shopping trips, they organize products into market bags. Available in produce and meat options, the bags' contents change based on what's in season. Fruit and veggie sacks may include watermelon, corn, bananas, broccoli, avocados, and pamphlets from the Tomato is a Vegetable League. The Meat and More bag brims with refrigerator staples such as organic butter and free range, antibiotic- and hormone-free eggs and meats. Alongside the bags, staffers include simple, wholesome recipes and tips on washing, cutting, and preparing more eclectic items.
