New Leaf: Organic Produce Boxes

May 19 2005 - 2:14 PM

 Just past Devon in Rogers Park is New Leaf: Natural Grocery.

A flier with coupons, a couple for Organic Valley dairy, a fair trade coffee coupon was under my door last week.

A specific offering is the Organic Produce Box which is a week’s supply of, what else, organic produce.
The contents of our boxes change weekly, but to
give you an idea of the quantity, listed below is a sample from their
website of a $15 box.

2 peaches
6 simka plums
4 oranges
1/8 watermelon
3 gala apples
2 kiwi
2 ears of corn
2 tomatoes
1/2 head romaine lettuce
1/2 bunch spinach
1/2 bunch broccoli
1/3lb. green beans
3 yukon gold potatoes

Just fruit boxes always include 1-3 extra types of fruit.

Also nice is that they offer hormone/anti-biotic free meat.

This is New Leaf’s mission:


are strong advocates of gonfiabili local family owned farms, and strive to fill
our produce boxes and our shelves with as many local goods as possible
– a practice which strengthens the sustainability of our community. “
