Your order will be delivered in a 100% reusable canvas insulated tote bag. By using a reusable bag instead of cardboard boxes, we're helping the environment and lowering our carbon footprint. By subscribing to Green Tomato, you're helping protect the environment from plastic pollution.
We pride ourselves on being a trailblazer in the community, and without your support, it couldn't be possible. We ask that you return your insulated tote bag to our driver so we can up-cycle them properly.
It's important that you return your tote bags promptly by leaving them outside your door the day of your delivery.
If you have cancelled your subscription, we’ve sent you a bag drop off guide with several drop off points. You also have the choice to send it via UPS mail or receive one last delivery.
*Customers who don't return their tote bags within two weeks of cancelling will be charged a $15 bag penalty fee
No, there is never a delivery fee! There's an option tip for our drivers.
No, you do not need to be home for delivery, however, we recommend it as all of the items are perishable. We cannot guarantee a delivery time, but our delivery window is from 11am to 7pm! You can write to us on delivery day if you wish to know a closer time frame. If a customer is not home we make every attempt to get the canvas tote bag inside your building to be left at your door, but this is up to the driver's judgement if the canvas tote bag is safe to be left at the location.
We have strict guidelines for all our farm and local partners. They undergo a vetting process from our team to make sure everything we carry is the best quality possible! We also make a note to highlight smaller woman and minority owned business that not necessarily have a certified organic certification, but are selling quality products and improving our community. Sustainability is also something we vet and take seriously, we try to only sell products that are sustainable and plastic free, although not always possible (like the hummus we sell). Thanks for your support!
We try our best to source all organic produce, however, not all farms we work with have official USDA organic labels. Please note that some of our produce might not be organic, however, we guarantee it’s the best quality.
The contents of our bags change weekly and thus it’s hard to provide a weight estimate of each bag since lettuce and potatoes vary greatly in weight! Also one papaya can be 5 lbs while another one is 2-3 lbs. The way we have curated our sizes and our guarantee is by the different quantities of each in each bag, that way we can guarantee variety!
- Cherry: 7-9 different types of fresh produce
- Plum: 10-12 different types of fresh produce
- Heirloom: 12-14 different types of fresh produce
- Beefsteak: 13-15 different types of fresh produce
- Only Fruits: 6-8 different types of fresh fruits
- Only Veggies: 7-9 different types of fresh veggies
WHAT 'S INSIDE MY TOTE BAG?
We source 80% of our produce from local farms here in Florida, the other 20% comes from nearby states like North Carolina and Georgia to add variety!
These are some of the farms we’re working with this season:
- Kadahar Farms (Homestead)
- Lake Meadows Farms (Ocoee, FL)
- FL. Mushrooms Urban Farm (North Miami)
- Bender's Farm (Boyton Beach)
- Miami Compost (Homestead)
To get the most out of your produce, keep fruits and vegetables separate from raw foods that come from animals, such as meat, poultry, and seafood. Refrigerate fruits and vegetables within 2 hours after you cut, peel, or cook them (or 1 hour if exposed to temperatures above 90°, like a hot car or picnic). Chill them at 40°F or colder in a clean container.
Fill a glass or Mason jar with an inch of water. Place the herbs in the jar like a bouquet of flowers. To store parsley and cilantro, loosely cover with a resealable plastic bag or cling wrap. If using a large Mason jar or quart container, you can use the lid to cover the herbs.
Just text +1 (954) 998-3142 or send us an email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make it right! We really love our customers and value your business.
*You have 24 hours after receiving your bag to report any problem with your order
No. We publish every Friday afternoon the list with the contents of each bag for the following week, however, if you don't like something or you're allergic you can contact us and we'll try to replace it!
All of our produce is hand-picked and minimally processed—straight from the soil so we do recommend washing your produce before preparing it!
We recommend store them in the fridge. Pasture raised eggs last 3-4 weeks in the fridge!
Yes, for large corporate accounts please email us at email@example.com, we are able to set up delivery for different days for large corporate orders, and offer special packages.
Your satisfaction is always our highest priority. All our products are inspected for quality and freshness upon receipt and prior to your delivery.
Green Tomato aims to exceed your expectations. Our goal is to help you eat better and fresher, explore new fruits and vegetables and to support the local farms which take pride in growing their crops in a sustainable manner throughout South Florida.
Please remember that your produce will not come perfectly colored, covered in wax, and completely free of dirt like in the super market. Eggs may have less than perfect oval shape and some meats may have more blood in them. The main reason is that the animals are raised on open range farms were they move freely, and they behave as the would in nature. Should you be dissatisfied with your purchase, please contact us the same day of delivery so we can make it right.
All changes to your order (including “disliked” items, changing items ordered, & cancelling/postponing a delivery) must be made before the order cutoff on Sunday at 5:00 pm for the upcoming week.
Your subscription will automatically renew on the Monday before on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. Subscriptions may be cancelled at any time, for any reason. Should you choose to cancel your subscription, you must inform us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or via WhatsApp — our customer service at (954) 998-3142. Orders cancelled after your order cut off time will incur a cancellation fee equal to the cost of your box order.
If you don't cancel/postpone before your order cut off, your account will be charged. No refunds are available for orders cancelled/postponed after the cut-off. *Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.
If you are unable to accept your final order(s), please email us and we will gladly donate it to a family in need.
