Note, I am not opposed to Irv and Shelly's Fresh Picks, nor do I specifically endorse them. I've no specific experience with them.

Hi there,

I believe you have joined my Yahoo Group for Chicago Locavores? Anyway, I just wanted to post a comment on this, both to say HI and to say that I have had one delivery so far from Irv and Shelley and found it to be a pleasant experience. I only got produce at the time, but I am considering trying some of their meat for my next order. I did write them an e-mail asking about ingredients in the bacon they offer but have received no response yet. I'll be letting the Yahoo Group know how the next delivery from them goes.

Cheers!
Nina
