Fresh, Organic Produce at The South Bronx Food Co-op

If you haven't checked out the South Bronx Food Co-op (SBxFC for short) maybe these pictures will entice you to walk in through their doors.  Farm fresh organic produce is delivered straight from the farm to SBxFC every Wednesday. DON'T have to be a member to shop there so come on in (although being a member does have its benefit such as discounts on all purchases)!  Also, if you work for a school or any institution or restaurant you should contact them for bulk ordering.  SBxFC does team up with local organizations and businesses to bulk order which passes on the savings to you because they are a non-profit organization. For those who are currently on public assistance and receiving food stamp benefits, SBxFC DOES accept Food Stamps and EBT so no one should have to go without healthy food!

For more information 
Call 718-401-3500 or 718-401-3502
Or why don't you just drop by at 3103 Third Avenue at the corner of East 158th Street.
There are many ways to get there via public transportation thanks to Melrose being so well served by rail, subway and bus:
