Azure Standard

Azure Standard specializes in natural, organic, earth-friendly foods and products. They deliver directly to customers, buying clubs and retailers by semi truck and UPS. 

They understand that naturally grown foods are instrumental in producing a long and satisfying life. They'd like to see more farmers and home gardeners turn to natural organic growing practices, so they do what they can to not only support the organic farmer, but also provide as many organic products as possible.

They specialize in natural, organic, earth-friendly foods and products. They are based in Oregon and deliver to Monterey Bay twice per month. 

How does it work?
You go to their website ( and open up an account. It is free. You will then fill your cart and checkout through them (NO COD's). They require a $50 minimum purchase per person. It will ask you what drop point you want your order shipped to. You will then enter the drop number of the location closest to you (see list of drops below). Typically, the orders have to be in by 4pm on the second to last Thursday of each month. Azure’s website has a schedule posted, we are Route K-5, or ask your drop person.
Once you’ve submitted your order, as long as the deadline has not past, you can go in and resume it and re-check out again. Remember, just because you ordered something, does not mean it will come on the truck. They pull the orders after the deadline and right before they load the truck.
The order will typically be delivered to your drop location the following Monday afternoon or evening. You will need to communicate with your drop person to know the closest times of delivery. We ask that if you are available, please come help unload the truck. The driver does not do it, so it's up to us! Communicate with your drop person. Some drop persons update on the blog with the approximate delivery time and other drops send emails to those on their drop. THE DRIVER’S SCHEDULE CHANGES THROUGHOUT THE DAY. YOU MUST LOG ON PERIODICALLY THROUGHOUT THE DAY TO SEE WHEN HE IS DUE TO ARRIVE AT YOUR DROP!! WE WILL NOT CONTACT YOU ANY OTHER WAY.
We do understand that some of you work or have young children and will not know if you can help unload the truck until we know when it will be here. Unfortunately, most of us don't have fridge or freezer space to store cold or frozen items SOOOO if it turns out that you are unable to help unload and you want to order cold/frozen items, YOU MUST MAKE ARRANGMENTS PRIOR TO ORDERING WITH YOUR DROP COORDINATOR OR WITH A FRIEND TO PICK UP FOR YOU, OTHERWISE DON’T ORDER IT!!


These dates/times are subject to change, there are no guarantees as to the exact time/day the truck will come.
