GrubMarket Fresh Produce Box


We received a lovely 12# box of fresh fruits from GrubMarket to review.


The box looked a little battered, so I was a bit apprehensive opening it, but I was pleasantly surprised that the contents were well packed, and in good shape.


GrubMarket uses lots of crinkle paper to ensure your fresh fruits reach you in good shape.


Everything around here is a group activity.  As soon as I started taking things out of the box, I had an audience.


We affectionately call Josiah (18) the Fruit Bat because he eats a ton of fruit, and his first question upon learning this was a review box was, "How long until I can eat it?"


About GrubMarket: GrubMarket is all about providing accessibility, by delivering the following key benefits to their stakeholders:
  • Unbeatable prices:  While many food delivery services and premium grocers cater to high-income earners, GrubMarket is committed to making fresh and delicious food accessible to all people by keeping their prices consistently lower than all comparable grocers.
  • Convenience:  Through their reliable operations, GrubMarket is committed to providing people in food deserts (ie. areas without farmers' markets and fresh grocery stores) with access to high-quality, freshly-harvested items that they would typically find at a farmers' market or Whole Foods store.  Additionally, they offer free delivery across the U.S. for all orders above $59.
  • Food Discovery:  GrubMarket provides a platform for their partnering small farms and vendors to sell their items directly to customers.  Many of these food producers have challenges getting shelf space at grocery stores, and/or may not want to pay the upfront costs of hosting farmers' market tables.  GrubMarket gives these food producers access to tens of thousands of customers through a robust online marketplace, regardless of the food producers' production scale. 

GrubMarket firmly believes that you, your family, and your friends should always have the opportunity to eat well, and that price should never be a barrier between you and healthy, delicious, and freshly-harvested food.  They are committed to providing you with the best grocery experience possible, by regularly offering you wholesome foods at wholesale prices.  They work with a variety of farms and artisan producers to bring you high-quality foods and other items at prices that are up to 50% OFF what you'd typically find at Whole Foods and other grocers. 


GrubMarket offers a wide variety of box types, including meats, vegetables, college care boxes, and even an office snack box.  So how did we enjoy our GrubMarket produce box?


Immensely!  Paul cut up the pineapple for us to have with our dinner one night.


Fresh pineapple is amazing, and this was super yummy.  We had fresh fruit with our lunches, and enjoyed mixing things up a bit with fruits we don't normally gravitate to in the store.  


How would you like to win a box of your very own from GrubMarket??  It's easy!  Just leave a comment telling me your favorite fruit or your favorite fruit recipe, and one of my lovely assistants will draw a name on 2/10.  Be sure to include your email address in your comment so I can notify you if you win!  Giveaway has closed.  


Imagine my girls' surprise when I gave them this red orange!  Part of the fun was getting to try new to us things, like the pomelo and the dates.

You can connect with GrubMarket on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest.
