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: Kiwi
No fruit stands out quite like the vibrant green kiwi. With its sweet, tangy flavor and the fun texture of its tiny edible seeds, kiwi is good for your taste buds and your health! Kiwis are high in vitamin C, fiber and potassium, and the seeds are a rare plant-based source of Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E. Substitute diced kiwi for pineapple or mango in a tropical fruit salsa to serve with grilled chicken or tofu. Make a poppy seed dressing by blending kiwi with olive oil, lime, spices and poppy seeds, and serve over leafy greens. For the perfect finish to a spicy meal, try an easy kiwi-ginger sorbet.
