Tips

  • Early birds get the best pick! Consider arriving on the front end, although there should be plenty to go around.
  • Bring a wagon, rolling cart or packaging of some sort (box or canvas bag) to carry produce. Boxes will also be available for you to use.
  • Consider splitting the cost with a friend and sharing the produce- 60 lbs is a LOT of fruits and vegetables! (You don’t have to take it all but you are allowed to if you would like)
  • Save the date- We will be holding a distribution at Alta Vista on the 3rd Saturday of every month November 2017-May 2018

About

The 3000 Club works with produce companies in the U.S. and Mexico to distribute tons of produce each year which would otherwise go to waste. Distribution sites receive a variety of fruits and/or vegetables by the pallet and customers pay $10.00 for up to 60 lbs. of produce. http://the3000club.org/wordpress/marketonthemove/
