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: Tangerines
For a refreshing, sweet uplift in winter (or anytime), reach for a tangerine. Cheerfully orange, sweet and easy to peel and section, a tangerine can really brighten your day. They offer a fresh note in grain and pasta salads, too; add peeled segments to leftover diced chicken and cooked pasta, tossed with honey Dijon dressing. Or liven up a main course, like coconut crusted shrimp with a quick salsa of tangerines, peppers, cilantro and minced jalapenos. Substitute tangerine zest for orange or lemon zest in just about any recipe, sweet or savory. And if you find yourself with lots of tangerines, freshly squeezed juice is an unbeatable breakfast treat.
