Have You Seen Me?

Thanks to your great word-of-mouth, we’re always growing by leaps and bounds! We’re thrilled to have so many new customers, so we wanted to be sure to give a generous grace period to let everyone get in the groove. We are well into the season now but we are seeing fewer and fewer returned bins each week. Returning your bin helps keep our footprint small and keeps our costs lower. Please remember to protect your bins from being damaged and place them outside on delivery day.  Our terms of service state that we have a $5 fee for boxes not returned.

Thank you so much!


IMPORTANT REMINDER: Thanksgiving Schedule Changes!

November 1st has rushed in and the holiday race is on. Please take note that ALL deliveries and pick ups will be  ONE DAY EARLY the week of Thanksgiving. All other deliveries will be on our normal schedule. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@theveggiebin.com.

We understand that many of our customers are traveling to visit family during the next two months. It’s quick and easy to set your bin on vacation hold well in advance. Just log into your Veggie Bin account and click on vacation, choose the dates, and save. You will receive an email confirmation within minutes.

Making Substitutions!

Have no fear! If you do not like one of our selected items in your regular sized organic or local bin you have the choice to remove it and double another item that’s already in the bin or a make a substitution. And if you just have too many veggies, the great news is you can select a French Pantry Baguette as one of our substitution items! Find step by step instructions in our blog post.

 Roma Beans Unearthed!

Roma Beans are known as the Italian String Bean. They are broader than string beans and have flat pods. You cook them just the same as you would a string bean but these little numbers are much preferred by our farmers over the string bean because of their tender texture and their more vibrant taste.

Ranked highest among nuts for antioxidants and naturally low in saturated fat, our organic pecans are good for you! With holidays just around the corner, now is the time to add pecans to your bin. You can choose quart size bag (~1 lb) for $12.00 and a half order for $6.00.

Fresh, fresh, fresh Locally Grown Grits! The corn grits grown and milled by Teagan farms are made from flint corn which is known for a grittier, more granular texture. In Italy, flint has been the choice polenta corn since the 16th century! Polenta is simple to make, low in fat and calories and nutritious! $6.25/bag. Log into your Veggie Bin Account and add grits for your next order!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Returning your bin clean and undamaged means that we can use it again and again. This keeps costs down, minimizes landfill waste and keeps your carbon footprint smaller. Bins that aren’t returned will incur a replacement fee, so be sure to put it out for pickup!
