5 Comments on “In Your Bag: Week of March 23rd”

  1. I live in the Spinney at Pondview. Drive in and turn right onto Antwerp. Drive up to 2nd group of mailboxes on the left…5 on the end. I am apartment 4 in the nearest building on the left. Red cottage with gambrel roof over front porch.

  2. I’m on chemo and already heavily dependent on you guys for my weekly produce.
    Fingers crossed for home delivery
    Please hurry!

  3. I am just around the corner from your home base on Scoharie Tnpke. Can I still pick up there?

  4. I was encouraged to see that home delivery is possible, but the $75 minimum makes this unworkable for me. Will keep an eye on developments and figure something else out. Thank you for trying.
