Over the past year, I have really been making an effort to have a more healthy lifestyle. I've lost almost 20 lbs. I've become more active - jogging at least 3 days a week, playing soccer with the small people, basically not just sitting around on my behind anymore.

I've also been choosing better foods to put into my body. I want my children to grow up making good food choices, and that's not going to happen if I'm not modeling it for them.

Enter GrubMarket - an online store that offers farm-fresh, organic food delivered straight to your doorstep. What could be better? We received the regular-size California Fruit Bounty Box to review.

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.

Our Thoughts:
Our box was filled with all kinds of delicious fruit, and it was all packaged so well that none of it bruised or had any damage. We received:

  • 4 oranges/clementines
  • 3 apples
  • A whole pineapple
  • 1 pear
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1 red pummelo
  • A container of Medjool dates

Not only did the fruit look amazing, it all tasted amazing as well. The apples were incredibly juicy.

My kids love guacamole, so the avocado already had a job to do. Ha! Some of the other fruit - I had to do some research on how to use it, like the pomegranate and the pommelo.

Although I was impressed with the variety and the quality of fruits in our box, my favorite thing about GrubMarket is the convenience of having it delivered right to my doorstep. No going out in the cold or rain to the grocery store or the farmer's market, hoping that I might find some decent fruit in the middle of winter.

GrubMarket doesn't just sell and deliver fruit, either. They offer 4 different GrubBoxes - California Fruit Bounty, Healthy Snacks, Organic Fruit and Snacks, and a College Care box. They also offer individual items in the following categories for delivery:

  • Produce
  • Snacks
  • Drink
  • Pantry
  • Homegoods
  • Baby & Kids
  • Pets
  • And more!
As one of my readers, you can receive 20% off your first order from GrubMarket by using the code GRUB20. Plus there's free shipping on orders over $59.
