This sounds like an amazing service! I'm going to read about the individual farms and see if the offerings are different than the Matthews Farmer's Market, for the products we need. I'm delighted to see a distribution source for LOCAL farmers. Plus, so many dates and locations for pick-up!!

Here is a fascinating article about the high salicylate issue in many fruits and vegetables. Apparently, vine ripened product allows the salicylates to breakdown naturally and are replaced by anti-oxidants! The salicylates in the produce inhibit the uptake of many vitamins and minerals making the produce significantly less nutritious. The conclusion is that "Green picked fruit has almost no vitamins and minerals."

Buying vine-ripened, local produce will allow the benefits of the produce.
