As a privately owned small business, we understand the need to keep costs down while operating efficiently. We have always tried to provide quality products / services at affordable rates for our customers. The box program started in late 2014, since that time our prices have increased only twice in 7 years. From time to time, however, it is necessary to adjust our rates to compensate for increases in expenses. Since the market values of goods / raw products and the rising cost of fuel, we are hereby bound to increase our assortment box prices to keep serving you with the best of our services and products.

Please note that our prices on the boxes have changed, the Large box will now be $32, and the small box will be $25 effective next week (5/31/21). We can assure you that even with the increase in prices our assortment boxes will save you money compared to the big chain stores. We will continue to offer convenient services such as drive-through services, delivery options and additional items you can add to your assortment box.

5280 Produce hopes to continue having you as our valuable customer and we appreciate all your continued support.
