Buying Clubs of Fresh Produce Gaining Popularity

Fruits, vegetables, and other foodstuffs may longer be just the province of big box supermarkets, community grocery stores or even farmers markets. Buying clubs allow members to pool their money and cut out the middle man. Many carry organic produce and have weekly or biweekly pick-ups.

Buying clubs are growing in popularity across the U.S. Part of the reason is price -- food from a buying club is often cheaper than the same produce from a grocery store.

According to the Miami Herald:

"Buying club founders and even regional distributors say clubs are cheaper than the average grocery store because members are buying wholesale instead of retail. Clubs also rely on members for distribution and word of mouth for advertising, meaning less overhead."
