One of the things that I love about going to school in New Westminster is the many good, unknown eats in the neighbourhood [Good Eat Cafe, Burger Heaven, Burger Burger and etc]. During my time at SFU, most of the food was located on the far end of the campus, highly inconvenient. So when Jeff told me about the Fruit Dealers and how they deliver fruit salad to SFU students and staff, I thought it was a great idea.
The Fruit Dealers feed SFU staff and students a healthy alternative. At VDL’s Extravaganza, Jeff had a couple of cups to hand out to some of the execs. (Note: Want to be a VDL exec? Recruitment beings this summer!)
Orders of 16oz ($4) are submitted online via their Facebook page and are prepared and delivered the morning of. Their fruits vary daily but the one I had included apples, oranges, grapes, dragon fruit, kiwi, and strawberries, topped off with some mint and a “secret sauce.” It is also important for them to be sustainable and local, sourcing from local markets and using recyclable cups.
No, not that kind of secret sauce, but some wonderful sweet citrusy sauce with a bit of kick to it. The sauce was sweet from the honey but it was complimented nicely by the mint. The pictures are a bit deceiving but this was a lot of fruit for one sitting.

And for anyone playing in VDL’s weekly playoffs, they’ll be in attendance on May 5th/6th and May 12th/13th at David Thompson Secondary from 12:30-4. Come say hi to me or Jeff!
