Our Yearly Daniel Foundation Toy Drive is back

The Veggie Bin will participate in the Daniel Wish Granters Holiday Drive again this year. If you would like to contribute, please place an unwrapped new toy in a gift bag along with your empty boxes and we’ll deliver your contribution to Daniel. The last date we’ll be picking these up will be December 12. We will also be accepting gifts on Tuesday at The Veggie Bin between 2 and 6pm. To learn more about this children’s foundation or to make a monetary contribution, please visit the Daniel website. Thank you!

Holiday Schedule

The Veggie Bin and our Farmers will be taking the week of Christmas off this year. There will be no deliveries from Dec 23-28. If your delivery date falls on this week, we welcome you to add a bin to the week before or week after by logging on to your online veggie bin account. If you have any questions, please let us know.

If you’re traveling this holiday season, suspending your Veggie Bin deliveries is easy. Simply login to your veggie bin online account by the Sunday at 10pm before you need to suspend. We can only credit you if you let us know by that time, otherwise we’ll have already ordered your produce! Temporary suspension of deliveries is available year-round, so when you’re on the move, let us know!

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.

Perfect for the Holiday Feast! 

We are NUTS about Brown’s Farm Pecans! No matter how you say it, “Puh-cahn” or “Pee-can,” your body will say, “thank you” for including them in your diet. 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!
