A Few Good Bananas is the creative child born
to three sisters who value family, friendship, and community.
Our family taught us very early on that it was more important
to have active and creative minds than money. Our mom was one
of the original up-cyclers. She found innovative ways to use
thrift-shop finds or items that outlived their original purpose
and passed that trait on to each of us. Our father used to say
"never buy green bananas because life is short, and you
never know if you will be around long enough for them to ripen."
After our dad died, the three of us took turns grocery shopping
for our mom. We always got a chuckle out of the fact that every
grocery list included "a few good bananas." Our friends,
family, and customers tell us that when they shop, they think
fondly of how A Few Good Bananas originated. We consider ourselves
instrumental in the lack of good bananas at our local grocery
