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: Heirloom Pluots
It’s easy to get hooked on pluots, with their floral aroma, inherited from apricots, and juicy, sweet flavor from their plum heritage. If you can resist just eating them out-of-hand, try chopping pluots and tossing with arugula, burrata cheese and olive oil for a fresh summer salad, or combine thinly-sliced pluots, apricots and cucumbers with torn fresh basil leaves and a squeeze of lime juice. A tasty twist on traditional salsa is a summer fruit salsa; dice pluots with garlic, red onion, cilantro and mint, add lime juice, salt and pepper, then spoon onto hot-off-the-grill chicken or pork chops.
