To thank me for writing a message of support for the Go With Bo campaign, my friends at Relay Foods are offering a special deal for Veg:ology readers.
They are offering a FREE Virginia’s Bounty Basket to ALL Veg:ology readers who want to give Relay Foods a try.
You can discover a wide variety of locally grown produce in this amazing mixed basket, which is also available for weekly refills, similar to a CSA share. Just to give you an idea of what is included in the basket, which changes every week, here is what was included in the Richmond basket, half share, for the week of 9/17/12:
- Harvest Hill Farm Sweet Potatoes, about 1 lb. (2)
- Harvest Hill Farm Collard Greens, per bunch (1)
- Henley’s Orchard York Apples – Half Gallon (1)
- Local Food Hub Red Juliet Tomatoes, 1 pint (1)
- Local Food Hub Carrots, 1 lb. (2)
- Harvest Hill Farm Virginia-Grown Yellow Squash, about 1 lb. (1)
- Local Food Hub Red Leaf Lettuce, 1 head (2)
- Local Food Hub Red Bell Peppers (2)
- Vintage Virginia Apples Heirloom Apples, about 1 lb. (2)
- Local Food Hub Yellow Onions, about 1 lb. (1)
- Harvest Hill Farm Large Eggplant, each. (1)
To claim the offer, simply visit RelayFoods.com, build an order for one Virginia’s Bounty Basket, half share (retail value $40) plus $10 worth of additional groceries, and enter the promotional code RelayVeg at checkout. The cost of the basket will then be deducted from your total. You can select your pickup date and location, then after Relay does the shopping for you, pick up your groceries from one of their friendly employees.
It’s that easy!
Please note that you do have to live in the Relay Foods service area, and their minimum order amount is $50 so you do have to order additional groceries to take advantage of this offer.
I recommend closing the gap with some of my favorite local products:
- Blanchard’s Coffee whole bean coffee
- NoBull veggie burgers
- Homestead Creamery milk
- Twin Oaks organic tofu
- The Farm at Red Hill salsa
- Montana Gold Bread Co. 9-Grain Bread
- Bearer Farms’ Local Wildflower Honey
So, tell me!
