Agree with the below reviewer that the organic vege deliveries are fantastic. Every tuesday I picked up 2 kg (15,000vnd/kilo)of random herbs and veges, always different, fresh and in season. I really liked the random aspect to it - I've learnt how to cook a whole lot of different vegetables I would never ordinarily buy.
Unfortunately now that Just Massage has closed they don't have a drop-off point on my side of town and as I only get a few kilos I don't qualify for delivery. I'm really hoping they solve this problem soon so I can resume my deliveries

I participated in this briefly last year when my building had the requisite 15kg to be a delivery spot. It is a wonderful service delivering a surprise selection of 1 or 2 kg (your choice) of fresh organic veggies at a fabulous low price/kg. I enjoyed figuring out what some things were and how to cook and eat them. This is a great program to support local farmers and for the price, you are not taking any risk if the bag of veggies doesn't suit you on a particular day. Veggies were always fresh and flavorful for us and I like not having to worry about getting rid of the excessive pesticides used here.
