I am looking to prosper in life by, first, bettering my heath, physically and mentally. I have now been vegan for nearly 2 years, trying to mostly do raw til 4. It can also be difficult to get enough raw foods in NYC because of the options (I don't like to buy a lot of out of season produce, also $$$..broke college kid, and getting it home). Looking to eventually be raw til 4 and grow most of my own food (in the future when I'm an "adult" and all that).
I'm origanally from South Jersey but I have moved around quite a bit in my short lifetime. I most resently lived in St. Petersburg, FL. I now go to college in NYC. I still spend lots of time in FL and NJ. Don't ask me where I'm from, because you will get a long story of how I'm from a bunch of places and I don't even know.

Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
I need information on where to get the best raw food in the city. I need assistance and advice on varieties of food, how to find great places to get rare food (so, not just strawberries and bananas, but more diverse things), as well as how much to buy and how often. Other New York inhabitants: what do you do?!

Hi, Angelica! I appreciate the add. My activity on this site is sparse, so I haven't made much progress within the community. Awesome to read that you're a Bonterra shopper; I've been working there for about two and a half years. Maybe I'll catch you there sometime!
You're quite welcome! Rollin' Oats is expensive, but they sometimes have decent stuff. The market isn't always organic, but some of the produce I'd argue is better than organic. It's more local too, which is nice. If you get on Facebook, you should check it out. They order from a produce wholesaler called Global Organic. They are a group so they split cases and disperse the food around. Keep checking those trees. Avocados are in peak season right now, citrus is not too far away. As your conviction grows for this path, you'll stop thinking about what others think of your way of living :) You can go on long rants, it's ok! No need to apologize. Again, you're welcome!
You posted in the right place don't worry :) I get my food from a few different places. I love the Mustang Flea Market in Pinellas Park. It's on the weekend and you can find a good mix of exotic fruit and veggies. That's a great place to go. You'll find fruits you may have never heard of (and veggies). For bananas, my staple food, I go to city produce on 4th street sometimes and sweetbay, save a lot and other supermarkets. I usually buy my banans ripe. The stores discount them when they're not perfect to the eyes. You can take advantage of that by buying them. Additionally there's a local buying club that has a Facebook group. I haven't dealt with them yet, but I know they'd be a great way to get some great food! Picking your food is the best if you know what you're doing. I'd recommend learning some of the basics and seeing what you can forage. This is the highest quality food and it's usually free. Hope this helps :)
