Anyone up for a bike around BWI in MD one Saturday? If you haven't ridden there yet, they have excellent trails. It's just under 11 miles for the loop, has a few hills, and passes by some horse…Continue

Hey everyone! We should have our own mini- woodstock fruit festival in July or August for a day or two, camp out and have everyone bring lots of fruit and meet new people. If anyone is interested in a meet up like this, let me know - we'll make a plan!

@anabea- i'll have to check it out. I can get jack fruit and durians at an asian market in ellicott city, md. Lotte i believe it is. ill keep you updated if i find anything else.

@james - haven't found anything.  I have found a "russian" market that sells fruit cheap.  It isn't organic though.  I have been buying cases of golden mangoes at whole foods that isn't too expensive and they have been glorious after a couple of weeks of ripening.  Also, Trader Joes has some organic fruit and greens and that hasn't been very expensive.  They sell by the case, but I found out that there isn't a price break for them.  If you find something, will you let me know?

I get them wholesale through our produce co-op, and they're still $2+ each.  He must have some good connections!  :-)

Anyone know where to buy fruit in bulk in the bmore area? cheap! LOL. or not. :) I hear DTM say he's finding cases of coconuts for pennies on the dollar. 7 to ten dollars a case. every where i go they are 3-4 dollars a piece. 

Thanks, James

Not sure if anyone will see this, but I overbought at Class Produce and would love to make up a small "order" from someone to pick up from me in North Arlington (Clarendon area). Priority for me is to move watermelon (mini) and red grapes, although I'm happy to share Valencia oranges, peaches, mangoes, grape tomatoes, and bananas as well. All organic except mangoes. Probably easiest if you email me at cg [at] carynginsberg [dot] com with what you want and when you can come. (I work from home, so flexible on pick-up.) I can give you the prices based on what I paid. If you have last week's list, that's it.

Lotoya, I do a small wholesale produce co-op/buying club out of my garage up here in Hagerstown.  Check out Four Seasons Produce and you could start your own buying club down there... $500/order minimum, and it's pretty much everything you could find in a grocery store... they supply the major chains, like Giant and Martins... tons of organic options, too...  They also sell organic dates by the pound or 11 pound boxes.   Tuscarora Organic Growers Cooperative is great, too, for more local stuff  during the late Spring to early Fall.  They have $150/order minimum, and generally have a good selection of greens and in season fruits, like apples, pears and berries, and citrus during the winter.    If you (or anyone) want some suggestions on how to get started with a buying club, let me know.   I'm sure it would thrive down there...  We don't have much (any) of a raw food community up here, so our buying power isn't as great, but I manage to get what I need.   :-)

Latoya, when I'm in DC MOM's is my favourite organic health food store to go too. They have a bunch of MD locations and they're super friendly. I'm sure you could get bulk fruits from them!

I grew up in the DC area (Rockville, MD) and then just moved back to Canada after two years of grad school in DC... so nice to see so many 811 from the DC area now :)
