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: Butternut Squash
Sweet and hearty butternut squash is wonderfully versatile; bake, braise, roast or steam this fall favorite to create a delectable variety of soups, sides and main dishes. Baked cubes of squash mashed with butter and cinnamon makes a warming side dish with roasted meat or fish. For a beautiful golden soup, steam squash and blend with cooked carrots, onion, leeks, butter or cream, and thyme or nutmeg. Roasted or steamed squash also complements earthy grains like faro, quinoa or wild rice. At its best from early fall through winter, store whole unblemishe squash for up to three months in a cool, dry place.
