Healthy living, like catching a really fast pig, requires balance, discipline, and a lack of grease. Move toward a healthier existence with today’s Groupon: for $11, you get a large, pre-prepared box of fruits and vegetables from Brown Box Veggies (a $22 value). Pickups can be scheduled at four locations in Irmo, Lexington, and Columbia on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
Brown Box Veggies’ produce-packers hand-select fruit and veggie medleys from local producers to nourish families without onerous trips to the market. Customers schedule pickup times, when they collect four to five varieties of primarily organic fruits, veggies, and fresh Carmen Miranda hats. Employees work with South Carolina farmers, markets, and distributors on each pickup date to source as much fresh, local produce as possible and gather recipe ideas for the chosen medleys. After refrigerating their juicy bounties, customers can return flattened boxes so as not to enrage Mother Nature’s environmentalist brother. Although today’s Groupon is only valid for Saturday pickup, customers can schedule future purchases to be delivered on a Friday for a small fee ($4).
