What you might find in a box

Each Mercado De Al Lado food box contains 13-15 ingredients designed to provide a full complement of foods for a small family.  The ingredients will evolve with the seasons and the local supply, but will always contain a mix of leafy greens, vegetables, fruits, eggs and dry goods. 

We try our hardest to bring you organic food from local sources. What we can't get locally, we get as close to home as possible!  

Here's an example of what you might find in a typical week's box, although items may vary week to week:


Family Box 

Our Family Box is best suited for 3-4 people (or two people who cook every day!)

  • 1-2 heads Lettuce
  • 1 or more assorted greens
  • Dozen Local Farm Eggs
  • Three types of fruits 
  • Local Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Peppers 
  • 2 lb Potatoes
  • 1 lb Beans or Grains
  • Local Bread or Tortillas
  • or more seasonal vegetable  


Basic Box

Our Basic Box is great for someone living alone, or two people. It has a similar wide variety as our Family Box, but with about half the amount of food.

  • 1/2 Dozen Local Farm Eggs
  • 2-3 types of fruits 
  • Local Tomatoes
  • Onions
