Overwhelmed at the idea of joining a CSA? Partnering with local sustainable farms, Chicago-based Fresh Picks brings organic food to your doorstep every week without the commitment…
Unlike a typical CSA that can sometimes deliver more than you can eat, Irv & Shelly's Fresh Picks offers a seasonal food box in three different sizes: single, double and family. They also offer a special box with all the ingredients for an included recipe. Want something that's not in the box? It's no problem with Fresh Picks; orders can be customized and out of season produce can be added. Fresh Picks also offers more than just produce - add in meat, eggs, milk or even prepared foods and baked goods to finalize your order.

Packing Up the Boxes
Not sure what to do with some of the unusual produce that comes with the order? Fresh Picks boxes always come with recipes and fresh food tips – there's also a ton of resources online and links to the farmers websites.
Deliveries are weekly, or bi-weekly, and no commitment is necessary. Fresh Picks comes highly recommended from several friends – we just ordered our first box, and we'll let you know how it goes!
