Seasonal Organic & Local Produce
We believe in supporting our local farmers and carry local produce whenever possible. Hoover Family Farms in Live Oak, Florida supplies us with their seasonally crops year-round including, but not limited to, green kale, collards, turnips, broccoli, bell peppers, jalapeños, tomatoes, watermelons and cantaloupes. In the middle of summer, enjoy scuppernongs or delicious blueberries from C&J’s Blueberry Vineyard. Ladybird Farms in Monticello, Florida provides us with high quality persimmons, Meyer lemons, and satsuma mandarins during autumn. We strive to be a 100% organic produce department. While most corporate natural foods stores buy produce based on price, we buy based on quality, which means Grade A and Extra Fancy items first. Customer service is paramount as well. Please ask us any questions you may have at any time.
What's Fresh: Pears
Juicy pears go so well with so many other foods that you'll want to include them in myriad dishes. Fresh pears are delightful for breakfast, on waffles and French toast or swirled into oatmeal with some honey and cinnamon. Or fold them into muffin and pancake batters, and add to smoothies. Chopped pears in a quinoa and spinach salad, or combined with mustard greens or kale and goat cheese add just the right sweetness to lunch or dinner. Dress with balsamic vinaigrette, and add grilled chicken or seafood, too. Pears are perfect in any autumn fruit salad, as well.
