Choose Your Box Options
The Local Choice Food Box provides a number of box options for our members to select from. We offer our customers two basic types of boxes: 

1) Local Choice Boxes:  Our Local Choice Boxes are our premium boxes. Each week we list everything that we are harvesting not only at our farm, but also what is being harvested from our dozens of partner farms.  Members who select Local Choice Boxes have access to our Fresh Sheet each week and choose every single item that goes into their weekly Food Box.  During the peak season our members can choose from over 100 different local farm products.  With the Local Choice Box your weekly delivery is 100% customizable to your tastes!  

2) Farmers Choice Boxes:  Our Farmers Choice Boxes include items that us farmers at Growing Washington choose for you each week.  This box is perfect for folks who like a surprise each week and really like to eat in season.  Members of this box type enjoy the same food that us farmers are bringing home--food selected at its absolute peak. Over the course of the season folks can expect over 100 different items in our Farmers Choice Boxes.  With years of experience under our belts we focus on providing folks with what we know the most popular items are, but also make sure to throw in unique items to keep things interesting and uniquely delicious.


Here's a simple table describing your options.

Sizes:

Whether you choose a Farmers Choice Box or a Local Choice Food Box, we have different sizes to meet your needs.  We offer boxes that contain 6, 9, 12, and 15 items (also referred to as *credits*) per week.


If you select a Farmers Choice Box you'll get either 6, 9, 12, or 15 individual items per week, depending upon the box size that you choose from.


If you select a Local Choice Food Box you'll get 6, 9, 12, or 15 credits per week, which allows you the ability to choose the corresponding number of items each week (for example, a pint of strawberries will require one of your available credits, whereas a half-flat of strawberries might require 5 or 6 credits).
