Oh, wow! I wish I had something like that nearby.. that said, there are a couple outfits that offer weekly boxes of Stuff, which I should perhaps look into, and see how that compares against the kind of vegetable purchases I tend to make. Nothing too weird and wonderful: carrots, mangetout, snowpeas, broccoli, baby corn, and green beans, mostly. Frustratingly, so much of all this comes from a long distance away - much out of necessity, I suppose.. it wasn't so long ago that all vegetable availability was strictly seasonal. I just can't help feeling I shouldn't like baby corn so much, when it's getting flown over from Thailand, rather than grown in hothouses somewhere closer. (But would that be better? I understand a lot of commercial roses are grown in Africa, Kenya especially, and that the overall ecological impact of cultivating them in greenhouses would actually be worse)

Fresh peas are especially nomworthy - such a huge difference from the frozen kinds, straight out of the pod. And good potatoes, of course.. though I'll admit a weakness for drowning them in cheese, for scalloped potatoes. So good. =:9 Actually, I haven't had such in quite a long while now.. maybe I'll pick up a bag next time I'm at el supermercado.

We used to get our veggie box from Terra Firma Farms. It was excellent and about the right size. It really changed our eating habits for the better. (:
