Our issues involved not receiving the food we have requested. We had ordered a wide variety of items including greens, fruits, etc. and they swapped in other items since they did not have quite a few of the items that we had ordered. The quality of the food was good but having 10 pounds of mustard greens was not what I had expected. The pineapples were probably the best we have ever had but we were pretty frustrated with the entire experience. We had our charter company pick-up the provisions since we they were cleaning the boat mid-trip between guests at Scrub Island so you may have a chance to avoid our scenario. They were pretty much horrible to deal with when we requested a partial refund. We ended up giving most of the food away during our trip so at least it did not go to waste.
I have to ditto the bad experience. In fairness, they didn't promise us any certain items, but 90% of what we got went overboard. I would have loved pineapples, bananas,or really ANY fruits, mint, herbs to cook with, or veggies to use in a salad. We also got a ton of greens. Not really something you want to prepare on a charter boat.
For those around Apple Bay..Cita has a pretty good little fruit stand set up just past Sebastian's and Wakumba, Cheryl's hubby, is growing some amazing veggies right there which he is selling. He had a huge amount of mustard greens and I talked to him about tomatoes. He will have them too..if he can stop the bugs eating them, he said. I am sure Cheryl can talk more about this..but its great for all of us and right on our doorstep.
We ordered a Good Moon Farm medium box in late-March were not impressed. We knew ahead of time that we wouldn't know exactly what would be included, but for the price they should give you a better idea a week out. About 25% of the items were past their prime on day 2 and we really had to struggle to incorporate the items into meals. Way overdone on the amount of leafy greens. A good idea, but lacking in execution and quality.
Just asked my wife about it...she says "never again".
Our first experience with Arragon was at Marina Cay. We were on a ball when they pulled up, going boat to boat, selling a variety of fruits, veggies, and baked good from Trellis.
Should we be in position to do that again, I will look over his selection as to buy what I want that suits our needs. Can't wait to see what is available at the stand near Sebastian's. I still feel bad for Good Moon not returning my emails. Apparently they have something going up there and are doing well enough that they don't want our business. We will find another place to plug our money into the local economy.
2 weeks from today we cut the dock lines........ WooooHoooooo !!
