Make Some Pocket Money

Do you have a fruit tree at home that has way too much for you to eat?

Sell your surplus homegrown fruit & veg sending an email to

If we can include your fruit in the Ooooby Box we will offer to buy at a price that we can afford.  If you're happy with that we will arrange pick-up for Monday afternoon.

You will need to pick and box the fruit and leave it in a convenient place for our driver to retrieve.

The amount owed to you will be given to you as Roobys (store credits) which can either be used to purchase food from Ooooby at $1 spending power per Rooby or you can cash you Roobys out for 80c per Rooby.

We are only operating this service in Auckland so far.

If you would like to run an Ooooby Box operation in your area email

I'm looking for a reliable supply of early seed potatoes(NZ pref Waikato). Traditional white/ yellow potatoes.

So far all the suggestion sent by some kind OOOby member have been unsuccessful.

  • Davd of Kaiwai does not accept emails from non pre- approved sources & I have no idea as to how else to contact him.
  • Local nurseries only get stocks in well after i need to start planting.

Hi, I live on the Awhitu Peninsula which is 2 hours drive from the city. I have excess herbs-parsley, coriander,bay, and spring onions & chives in particular. Rather than pick up, are you interested in a weekly courier set-up (I pay costs) to be part of the Monday (or other day) pick-up round? Would the ooby stall at a weekend market be interested in this sort of set up. I'm a Nooby, so putting out some feelers re. regular supply for possible larger amounts in the future.

Hi,I have a lovely lime tree full of limes that I would like to try and swap for lots of avocados needed for making guacamole at our Mexican themed party. Does anyone have a surplus of Avocados? or any suggestions?

Thnx Richard I didn't know that!

Sorry I can't help Marilyn - but from my research into Asparagus you need to plant the crowns in June or July. You shouldn't harvest for 2 years after that.

Has anyone got any asparagus plants. Kiwi fuit plants or rhubarb plants  I am in the Wanganui Area, willing to pay.
