I tried the Farmer's Cart organic delivery service

For all of you who were looking for delivery services, I got my first shipment from the Farmer's Cart organic delivery service a few days ago. They deliver on Wednesdays to the downtown/Silver Lake area and surrounding neighborhoods. I got the $39 box which is the large size. They make the selection for you which is a little odd, since I've never bought radishes in my entire life and now I have a whole bunch of them. But I thought it would be fun to try something different.
I got apples, bananas, broccoli, cucumbers, bagged salad, tomatoes, potatoes, etc. Nothing very exotic. Quality seems pretty good. But it's hard to see how you'd want to receive vegetables you don't pick out yourself week after week -- I guess some services offer more customization. It seems like mainly a convenience for downtown loft dwellers who just can't get to a market.
Coincidentally the same week I got a brochure from Organic Express, which is now delivering in L.A. Has anyone tried them or L.O.V.E. (Los Angeles Vegetable Express) delivery?
