What we're about

The Inland Empire Organic Produce Buying Club is a group of people living in and around Redlands, CA, and Cherry Valley, CA; we pool our money to make a big group purchase of fresh, certified organic produce from an organic wholesaler, and when possible, local, organic farms. Then we divide the produce evenly amongst the participants. Everyone goes home with a big basket containing a variety of fresh, organic fruits and veggies, for a fraction of what we would pay in supermarkets.

Produce shares must be prepaid, this allows us to buy exactly the right amount of produce for each purchase, and helps keep our costs a low as possible. Members volunteer, if able, to help set up the produce baskets and run the Meetup, which also minimizes our costs.

We aren't just about saving money. The IEOPBC is about building community, supporting local, organic farmers, and educating families about health and nutrition.

We currently have two fabulous locations:

Mentone at the Moose Lodge

Kluddes Gastro Pub and Deli
