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: Strawberries
These juicy, plump jewel-like berries are bursting with tangy, sweet flavor. Try a raw sauce to spoon over oats, plain yogurt, toast or ice cream: smash strawberries with orange zest, vanilla bean, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and honey and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour. Strawberries add color and sweetness to a grilled chicken salad with spinach, walnuts and a homemade dressing of strawberries, olive oil, honey and a splash of orange juice. Or blend strawberries, tomatoes, green bell pepper, cucumber, onion, garlic, jalapeno, lime zest and juice, balsamic vinegar and salt for a refreshing lunchtime gazpacho.
