In order to ease pressure on available parking and to ensure that no one needs to show up early in order to buy mangos, we've instituted a lottery system for our bigger Saturday sales this season.
This is how it works: whoever is interested in getting a spot in the line on Saturday will need to send us a message on messenger anytime between 6am and 6pm on the Friday before the sale. Because it is a random draw, it won’t matter when you contact us. After our afternoon pick, around 7pm, we’ll post how many pounds of mangoes we will have the next morning and message you directly with your number in the line. Once you have a number, all you need to do is arrive at the time we open—no need to come early—so that you're there when we call your number. Depending on the time of the season and our supply, limits may apply (a 10lb limit per person, for example).
To opt in for a lottery number, message us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/freshFLmangoes)
You can, of course, also show up without a number if you’d like to take your chances, but you’ll be in a standby line behind those with numbers from the day before. Most often, particularly at peak season, we still have mangoes available for walk-up sales after the lottery.
Thanks for your support and your patience with this new system!
