We're hearing good things about Good Eggs, the Bay Area-based startup that allows consumers to buy directly from local farms and food producers. Unlike a CSA, where you might get stuck with 12 pounds of kale (wait, that doesn't sound so awful), you can pick and choose exactly which items you want, be it eggs from Early Bird Ranch, coffee from Four Barrel, or beef from LeftCoast GrassFed. Check out all the producers here.
Currently Good Eggs is filling orders in and around San Francisco, the Peninsula, East Bay, and Marin. Orders can be arranged for pick-up (free) or delivery ($3.99) to your home or office. Each producer has its own "farmstand" online with photos and descriptions of the available goodies, and availability depends on your neighborhood.
Pretty neat, right? Bay Area eaters, have y'all tried Good Eggs yet?
