Annie's Organic Buying Club

A few months back, we joined Annie's Organic Buying Club. This organic produce buying club was established by Annie Malka. She uses the groups pool of money to purchase the organic produce in bulk and coordinates with the coordinators all over Florida and southern Georgia to distribute the organics to the club participants. It really makes buying organic fruits and vegetables more affordable. See the link below for more information.

We have had a great experience receiving the freshest and most delicious organic fruits and vegetables. I am currently receiving the $45 Fruity Booty share Bi-weekly. My first share in January included apples, pineapple, broccoli, lettuce, cucumbers, shitake mushrooms, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, crimson melon, sunchokes and much more. It's approximately a 30-40lb box (or bags in my case) of fruits and vegetables. The friday before I pick up my share, Annie emails what we can expect to receive and a collection of recipes that correspond to the weeks share.

The shares allow us to eat healthy and organically-affordable. I get to experiment with vegetables, I would not normally purchase at the grocery store. It's a fun way to add a healthy variety to each week's menu.


  1. Hi there. I just found out about this club today. I came across your blog and I'm wondering...are you still buying from annie's organic buying club? If so, what has been your experience so far since your first box in January? I'm considering to join. I already buy organic from Whole Foods Market but it's pricey. Thanks!

  2. Yes I am currently with Annie's. My family and I are having a great experience. It's keeping us well fed and healthy. See the rest of my blog posts for more info on what I have received from pick up to pickup.
