FOOD & PLANTS

Prices and Produce

Certain items are only available when they are in abundance. Please use the CONTACT Page to send inquiries.

Check this invoice for prices – produce is weighed in grams. Some are priced by number of items.

For example, 100gms of freshly cut Aloe Vera = $2 or U2 (BrisLETS Units)

I’ll use this spreadsheet to price and total the amount due.

You can request a copy of the spreadsheet to decide how much you want and how much to spend. Please send a message through the CONTACT page.

Delivery/postage = extra dollars or pick up from Coopers Plains.
Prices have been set by checking online supermarket prices and striking an average so as to minimize changes over time. Organic food prices are normally higher. See also http://www.ripenear.me for available produce, although it’s not always up to date.
