Our fridge was running pretty low on fresh fruits and veggies (I think all we had in the crisper drawer was a lemon and some parsley), so this morning I stopped by New Leaf Produce. They had sent me a coupon in the mail for $10 off my purchase of $20.
They have a nice variety of basic produce that is in season – but if you’re looking for something specific, you may want to check your normal grocery store. Today they didn’t have pomegranates or Serrano peppers that were on my shopping list.
The only other complaint I’d have is that my receipt didn’t really itemize my purchase – they just rang up “tomatoes” multiple times for different prices, so I couldn’t really tell how much I paid for each item. I didn’t even buy tomatoes today! The top says “refund requires receipt”, but it doesn’t really make sense if it doesn’t even outline the foods.
One thing I really love is their bumped and bruised area in the back – fruits and veggies that are marked down because they aren’t in perfect shape. As their sign says, they are great for cooking or juicing. They also have overripe bananas that would work well for banana bread.
Overall, New Leaf Produce was a nice place to shop, but I did need to take a trip afterwards to Publix to pick up the rest of my list. Without my $10 off coupon, the prices would have been pretty similar to other grocery stores, so I’d probably only go there if I was already in the area and only had a short grocery list.
New Leaf Produce is located at 3401 S West Shore Blvd, Tampa, FL 33629 and is open from 7am – 7pm every day.
