Looking to freshen up your plate this year? Why not start with a produce subscription box. They’re great for the environment (less international shipping), fantastic for local farmers (less food waste), and good for your budget. No shade to conventional grocery stores though; shop where you can, however works best for you!
Our editors have rolled up their sleeves and dug up the five best produce delivery companies for fresh fruit, vegetable, and protein boxes right to your door. We’ve paid special attention to finding produce boxes in a wide range of locations, from Los Angeles and New York to Minneapolis, Tulsa, Houston, and even the UK.
Some of the grocery delivery subscription services on this list work with surplus fruit, while others sell “ugly” vegetables that don’t sell in stores. These boxes are bringing fresh, seasonal goods to the forefront, rescuing produce from landfills, and making delivery more convenient than ever. Win-win.
