Seasonal Organic & Local Produce
We believe in supporting our local farmers and carry local produce whenever possible. Hoover Family Farms in Live Oak, Florida supllies 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: Fingerling Potatoes
These heritage potatoes with delicate yellow, orange or purple skin naturally grow small and narrow and don’t need to be peeled. For a tasty and tart side dish, sauté boiled fingerlings with garlic, onion, stock and wine, and finish with fresh thyme and lemon juice. An elegant hors d’oeuvre pairs roasted fingerlings with a creamy homemade sauce; heat chevre and buttermilk in a double boiler, then season with chopped fresh chives and thyme. And, especially at this time of year, you can’t go wrong roasting a chicken with herbed fingerling potatoes, pearl onions, garlic and carrots.
