feel free to go organic. Now you can have an organic produce basket conveniently delivered to you at the Arcadia studio, and enjoy 20% Metta Unlimited Member discount. Take a class, then grab a basket, and find your way home to cook a delicious, healthy dinner from veggies that were harvested only few hours before. Baskets are provided by FARMYARD, a local urban farm run by two sisters Sarah and Rebecca Kidwell. They farm at 4 properties right in the heart of the city, with one very close to our Arcadia studio. It is a well known fact that the more transportation time your produce gets, the less nutrients your food has for you. These girls harvest your produce the day they deliver it to our Arcadia studio - it doesn't get much fresher than that, unless you grow it yourself (which they can help you with as well!). They also offer organically fed, free range eggs, which can be added to your basket.
Baskets will be ready for pick-up Tuesdays 5:30-7:30pm at the Arcadia studio:
Metta Unlimited Member $30 (5-week subscription $153 tax incl.) Non-Member $36 (5-week subscription $183.60 tax incl.) Add 1/2 dozen eggs $3.25 (5-week subscription $16.58 tax incl.)
