Misfits Market Produce Box Reveal

It Is no secret That my family loves to cook and eat great food. But it can get expensive to buy the yummy ingredients needed to keep up this habit. We are always shopping around and looking for the best ways to cut back out grocery budget without sacrificing the tasty recipes we want to make.

I saw and advertisement for Misfits market on face book and decided to look into it. It is a company in the Northeast that buys all the produce that grocery sores don’t want ton the shelf because it doesn’t meet their visual standards. Still perfectly good to eat and taste the same, but might be a little small, a little too big, or a funky shape. They offer a box of this “ugly” produce to be delivered to your house for a lower price than you would pay at the store. But it depends on what is in season or what is available to the company, what’s in the box. Its a mystery until it arrives.

You can choose if you want to just buy one box or if you want to sign up for a box every week. There are also different size boxes to choose from. I choose the smallest box which is 12 pounds of produce. Since I only wanted it one time, it cost me $23. If I had it as a subscription it would have only been $19. But I wanted to check t out first before signing up for the subscription. I really like the idea of cutting down on food waste and also cutting some money off our budget. But I wanted to make sure it was something we would use before I sign up for a weekly box delivery.

You can watch the video to see what was in our first box. I will include the links to some of the recipes we have made using our box ingredients. All in all I was pleased with the box and the produce. The apples were a little bruised but other than that the produce was all fresh and delicious. I liked that it challenged us to not only try some new vegetables that we had never eaten, but it also gave us inspiration to come up with new ways to cook what we were sent. I would definitely do it again. I don’t know if I want a box a week though. It was a lot of vegetables to use in a week.
