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: Asparagus
Is there a seasonal vegetable more anticipated than the first stalks of spring asparagus? These lovely green shoots are a favorite for the seasonal table, and for good reason. Sweet and mild but distinctively flavored, asparagus appeals to a wide audience, not least because of its tender, juicy crunch. Try it with other light, spring flavors: lemon, chives, spinach and wild spring mushrooms like morels all pair beautifully with asparagus. Add asparagus and spinach to a rich, creamy quiche or fold blanched asparagus, Parmesan and spring peas into a light risotto. Simple, steamed asparagus topped with butter never goes out of style.
