Albuquerque, NY (KRQE) – At roadside stores offering grocery delivery options, some New Mexico have opted to support locals instead. “I’ve never delivered food to the door, HelloFresh, etc.,” says Erin Glimit.
Glimit is new to New Mexico, but has already tasted everything the state offers. “I love the perfect idea like a farmer’s market for your door,” Glimit said.
Glimit has joined New Mexico Harvest, a company that connects you with farmers in every corner of the state. “They have a lot of really great things,” Glimit said.
The online store shows customers the property of each farm. Customers choose what they want and add it to their “cart,” just like a regular grocery store. When items are in the cart, they are delivered weekly to the front door.
“I really like changing it and trying as many new things as possible,” Glimit said. One week she happened to forget her choice, but they chose her so she had some interesting meals that week.
“I’ve never heard of these vegetables, so I have to try a new recipe,” says Glimit. The company supports more than 50 New Mexico farms along the way.
“We work with local farmers to build a direct consumer relationship where everything from seeds to families is committed,” said Thomas Swendson, President of New Mexico Harvest. This gives farmers the peace of mind that what they grow is not wasted.
“I was able to go to the grocery store and get the same produce, but it probably wasn’t grown in New Mexico,” Glimit said. It makes each meal special and unique.
“Even if it’s a little more money than I spend in a grocery store, it’s very valuable because you’re helping so many people,” Glimit said. Currently, delivery services are only available in Albuquerque and Los Alamos, but we hope to continue to grow to cover the entire state.
