May I brag for a moment?
Have you seen how ridiculous this Provençal version of a vegbox is? This was in September. We started receiving our vegbox during the summer when I found out that half my street also gets the same parcel delivered once a week by a local Paysan. Why didn’t anyone tell me sooner?
I think it’s safe to generalise that Provençal cuisine includes a lot more vegetables than the rest of France. Ratatouille… (I still can’t pronounce it the way people here say it). Indeed, to use all these vegetables and fruit up in a week, there’s no excuses. Have you seen how many green beans there are!? We often get the vegbox only once every two weeks; it can take us a while to eat it all.
Every single week the produce changes. This week we started receiving more blette and apples instead of figs. However, the tomatoes are still lovely, red and delicious all the way through, here in Provence. Everything is picked the same day (as it only comes from the next village) therefore, it’s incredibly fresh.
Finally, can you guess how much this costs?
That’s equivalent to about 13,50 USD or about 10 pounds sterling.
I’m excited to see how the vegetables and fruit change throughout the season. In Provence, even the winter produce is gorgeous.

It would be fun to compare!
