Organic Vegetable Subscription

Now when I live in Stockholm I’ve finally subscribed for a weekly box with organic vegetables and fruit delivered to my door, which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Nobody has introduced this to Gothenburg yet and as far as I know the only cities in Sweden with this option are Stockholm and Malmö. There are two companies that deliver organic vegetables and fruit and I had a hard time choosing between Ekolådan and Årstiderna. I finally ended up with a subscription from Årstiderna, and I will get my first box on Thursday. There are many variants to choose between, and for a start I will try Mixlådan (the mix box) with both vegetables and fruit which costs 230 SEK including delivery. A report will come next week when I receive my goods.

    This is such a good idea, and I’ve wanted to get a weekly organic box delivery for ages. However, as I’m only cooking for one mostly, I’m afraid that I’ll end up with too much waste. So weekly trips to the farmers market it is instead..

    Hi Pille,

    When I saw your comment I realized that you don’t call it “ecological” in English, I translated it directly from Swedish :-) But now I’ve changed my post to “organic” :-)

    Anyway, we have something called “singel-låda”, which is suitable for one person and includes less vegetables and also things like juice, tea, pasta etc (all organic of course) which means less waste I think. Maybe you have this option as well?

    I have a friend in Stockholm that I know get this – didn´t know that I, not living there, could. Thanks for the tip! Årstiderna deliver in my hometown. Great!

    thats about 24 euros! almost what we pay for 1-2 weeks of veggies as well. sometimes i wish we lived in very warm countries with very cheap vegetables :) looks like a lovely idea though, must be quite time saving!

    That’s an awesome service – wish we had that here! We do, however, have the milkman come once a week, so no complaining.

    I want to let you know about a cool new product that I’ve discovered. It’s called the Mini Mate, this product is placed in your fridge and uses activated oxygen to kill bacteria and eliminate odors, keeping food fresh longer. If you are like me I like to buy fresh veggies and fruit but hate to throw things away because organic foods don’t have any chemicals or preservatives to help them stay fresh. I’ve found that the Mini Mate which costs right around $50 has saved me more than the cost of the product in keeping my produce fresh longer. I love saving money and knowing that the germs and bacteria that may be in my fridge are being eliminated, keeping me and my family healthier. This product is about 5 inches in size and runs on D batteries so all you have to do is put it in the back of your fridge and let it work. I ordered mine at http://www.orderminimate.com
