How to buy bulk fruits, herbs and vegetables from Mariquita Farm.
Example of a Fall/Winter Mystery Box
WHAT is a Mystery Box?:
A 'Mystery Box' is like a csa box... except you don't pay ahead... and we don't really know everything that's going to be in it until that day. Winter boxes have to be a bit more "mysterious" in the winter. Will it frost? Will it rain? Will it be 80 degrees? Winter veggies have to be stronger and more substantial to survive in the field, and the winter box is a little heavier and more substantial too. Then again, the winter mystery box comes less frequently, and the ingredients that compose it often have a longer shelf life in the refrigerator.
Special Deliveries to your Community
This is the program to sign up for to get our veggies. Not a CSA program but rather, bulk deliveries on an order-and-pay-as-you-go basis. We'll offer our mystery boxes (see info on the left) and as well as bulk quantities of particular seasonal vegetables when harvest permits.
If this service looks interesting to you, please sign up to be included on the list of people to get a special email alert. We have three lists: San Francisco, the Peninsula/South Bay and the East Bay. (Links below) Once you're signed up, we'll send out special announcements that include a link to a Google order form for you to place your order. Whole unit quantities only, please. If a whole case is too much, find a friend to split it with and let the cooking begin!
