Customizing Your Orders

Customizing your orders has changed!

We have been working hard over the summer to improve your customer experience. We have changed our shopping cart from making substitutions to completely customizing your box order. Your price adjusts automatically! If you only want 7 of the 8 items you will pay less than the $26 (local box) or if you want 12 ears of corn instead of 6, the price will increase accordingly.

Below is how the shopping cart looks when I log in. To customize your box, click the customize now button. The same substitutions pop up will appear. Place the amount of each item you would like in your box. For items you would like removed, just add a zero. Hit submit at the top right to save and close the window. In future weeks, this will be changing so that you see every item in your shopping cart instead of clicking customize now.

Next, to add items outside of the preselected produce,  search our shop tabs. Select the quantity of the item and hit add. The item will appear in the shopping cart. Easy! And it will just get easier!

When you are done customizing your box, hit SUBMIT ORDER NOW!

The Veggie Bin has Teamed Up with Daytona’s Front Porch Pickings!
Whew, we made it through the hot summer and excited to get back to deliveries. If you missed our email a couple of weeks ago — you missed our BIG news. The Veggie Bin has merged with Daytona’s farm to table service, Front Porch Pickings (FPP). The owners of FPP, Nicole Lebron and her dad, Jan Pittard and I have been “informally” working together since January 2011 when we both had only 20 to 30 customers each. We are excited to “officially” work together! Combined, we are serving over 800 customers from Jacksonville to Daytona under the name Front Porch Pickings.

So what does this mean for you? As a Veggie Bin member much will stay the same, but here are the changes we have implemented:

Our Name: We will be taking the name Front Porch Pickings.
More box options: We have added a Grab & Go Box, perfect mix of local and organic (global) items that you can eat raw for $28.
More Store Items Available Each Week: One of the benefits of joining forces is that we will now have access to more products than previously offered as we will be going to more farms each week and have more items through our organic distributor.
Large Fruit: Instead of double the fruit of our small fruit, it will now contain 6-7 different fruit items
Billing: For your convenience, we will now bill all of our customers on the day of your delivery. Therefore, if you place your delivery on vacation hold, you don’t have to worry about a credit on your account because you won’t be charged unless we deliver!
Thursday Delivery: All of our Thursday deliveries will now be on Wednesdays.

We want to thank all of our customers for making us a huge success! We look forward to serving you and your families for years to come.
Happy Cooking,
Amie, Jan, & Nicole — and our newly expanded team
