Organic vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides, as they naturally repel pests by threatening to spoil popular TV dramas that the bugs haven't caught up on. Show good taste with this Groupon.

$45 for One-Year Membership, One Introductory Half-Share of Produce, and One-Time Bin-Rental Fee ($94 Value)

Through the co-op produce program, members pick up local produce every other week. Pick-ups at the Arlington location run from 3 to 5:30 p.m. every other Friday; at Fort Worth, they last from 4 to 6 p.m. every other Friday and noon to 2 p.m. every other Saturday.

After they receive their introductory half share (about 15 pounds of produce), members must pre-pay for each additional share every two weeks ($30/half share; $50/full share). Aside from access to co-op produce, memberships include 5% off in-store purchases and exclusive product offers.

Urban Acres

Part-time personal chef Steven Bailey was growing tired of bland, industrially processed food. As detailed by D Magazine, Steven was determined to do something about his frustration, so he hit the road one weekend in his Volkswagen Rabbit and began scouring Texas farms and markets for fresher ingredients. The more organic, locally grown food he brought back, the more friends and neighbors started requesting some for themselves. The growing demand led Steven to start Urban Acres, where customers can track down organic produce, dairy, and grass-fed meats from local farmers and artisans who never use pesticides, hormones, artificial flavoring, or shoddy magnetic force fields.

As a customer of Urban Acres, customers pick large, medium, or small shares of organic fruits and veggies, as well as meat, coffee, and granola shares if desired. Urban Acres sells locally grown grub at its Oak Cliff Farmstead, which D Magazine says "brings a bit of country to the big city." There, visitors can find shelves and counters fashioned from reclaimed wood, a bee colony on the roof, and produce snuggled in boxes of hay. Urban Acres also offers hands-on educational opportunities to learn about small-scale urban farming.

I moved here recently from the Shreveport area. I am so pleased to have access to fresh vegetables again! I think it's a great value for the money! I look forward to getting my half share every other week.
