I'd say negative on the wooden boxes. Most customers don't want the box. I just dump the tomatoes in a plastic bag and re-use the box. The wood will stain over time if you re-use them, as some cherries inevitably burst in the boxes. I make my boxes up at market and not the night before for that reason. Also, the green mesh plastic baskets will give the fruit 'waffle butt' if they sit overnight.

This is the place we get our stuff: http://www.southernfs.com/agronomy/P...rd-Supply.aspx

Stop by and take some plants if you come down. I'm overflowing right now.
