Seasonal Organic & Local Produce
The crisp crunch of an apple, the snap of a green bean, the aroma of garlic or the vivid red of a strawberry-we like to let our produce speak for itself. We offer the largest selection of organic produce in the Florida Panhandle. Our organic produce is free of pesticides and artificial fertilizers, leaving our fruits and vegetables as nature intended.
We believe in supporting our local farmers and carry local produce year round! Look for broccoli, kale, cabbage, beets, salad mixes and daikon root from local farmer Jeff Baptist, owner of Spring Song Farm. In the summer, enjoy multi-colored heirloom tomatoes or delicious local blueberries. Sprouts from Ladybird Farms-perfect for salads, sandwiches or munching straight out of the box-grace our shelves early spring. When organic produce is not available we carry the freshest, highest-quality conventional produce available. Not to worry, all of our produce is clearly signed.
What's Fresh: Apple
With more than 7,500 varieties to choose from, there is truly an apple for every occasion. Apples make excellent out-of-hand snacks, whether your taste buds prefer tart, sweet, juicy or crunchy. Many apple varieties pair deliciously with rich and salty foods like cheese or nut butters, in addition to their well-know roles in desserts like pies and tarts. Apples can liven up breakfast, too. Add sliced apples and cinnamon to hot grains like oatmeal or freekeh (an ancient variety of wheat). Feeling adventurous? Try sautéed diced apples topped with melted cheddar cheese for a sweet and savory brunch dish that goes well with eggs.
