Recently I posted to our Facebook page that we are a part of a Fruit & Vegetable Co-Op of 8 families all of which live in our suburb. For $40 we get all of the fruit & vegetables you see above every fortnight. We go to the Flemington Markets in Sydney at 5.00am on a Saturday morning. I’m not much of a morning person – actually I’m not a morning person at all – so I usually dread it when it is my turn!! However, once we are back home and have unpacked the fruit and veg for the other 7 families to come and pick up it is always worth the effort at the end of the day!
Being a part of a co-op has been so beneficial – and the responses that I got from the post on Facebook made me think about putting out a call for other co-ops in Australia. Buying this way is truly a money saver!
So here is the list that has been compiled – If you have a co-op that may be looking for more members, please let us know and we can update the file. I have modified the email addresses slightly to avoid the addresses being used for spam. To send an email to the address, replace (at) with the @ sign in the email addresses.
