With a delivery area centered around Portland, spanning Wilsonville to Vancouver, Hillsboro to Canby, Organics to You builds all-veggie, all-fruit or mixed boxes in various sizes. Each week, contents are posted online. My orders are based on how much remains from my last delivery. Doing so helps me control– and eliminate– any excess that might otherwise go to waste. The company supplies produce add-ons, including: Asian, Latin, salad, grill, and, my favorite, cocktails. Dairy, meat, fish, coffee, bakery and pantry items are also available. Best of all?
