They have everything from different sized boxes filled with fruits and veggies to meat, seafood, milk, free-range eggs, coffee, and much more. We placed our order on Sunday and everything was ready to be picked up on Thursday. I wasn't able to go with Kyle when he picked up our order but he said it was in this really tiny, random building hidden between two other buildings. He said he felt a bit awkward only because everyone seemed to know one another and knew what they were doing. I think after a while we'll get to know the people involved with the co-op and we'll feel as though we fit right in!

Everything we ordered came out to 90 dollars and some change. I think this a reasonable price considering we got lots of organic produce, organic milk, free-range eggs, two pounds of coffee, bagels, tofu, vegetarian Worcestershire sauce, cheese, and two bags of rice-pilaf type mixes. Buying quality and healthy food is worth the price to us.
I already love this system of buying food. We have fruit (which is consumed quickly in this household) and random veggies that must be eaten so we've had to find lots of different recipes to use them up. Just in the last few days I've made four new recipes. It's such a great system because it is forcing us to change up our normal menu and try new meals and recipes. The food was all so fresh and organic! I love the fact that the hens that lay the eggs live just 20 minutes away on a small family-owned farm!
I'm really excited about the Food Co-op and can't wait until we make our next order. If you live in Savannah you really should give it a try, or if not find a food co-op near you!
