4 Options For Organic Produce and Sustainably Sourced Groceries for Less Money

May 14, 2023

There are four subscription services that source these ugly fruits and vegetables so that they are rescued and farmers get a fair price for them. These services deliver organic produces to consumers at their doorstep for a cheaper price than what they would pay at supermarkets and grocery stores. We love these brands for their mission-driven services. Learn more about how these brands are sustainable on the ConsiderBeyond app.

1. Misfits Market

Misfits Market started as a place to get fresh quality organic produces that look less pretty for less money. Almost half of all product harvest in the United States gets thrown away simply because it does not look pretty enough to sell in grocery stores. Misfit Market dedicates to selling most natural, Non-GMO produces that may look a bit 'weird' and 'ugly' for cheaper price. Now, Misfit Market has expanded to sell other sustainable grocery items like cooking supplies, pantry staples and much more. The company now works with food makers as well as farmers to reduce their waste and take their excess inventory.
