Our Produce Department offers the widest selection of ORGANICALLY GROWN fruits and vegetables in Southern Oregon. We strive to combine the best customer service with the highest quality produce available.
Where our fruits and vegetables are grown is very important to us. Our product standards insist that we source produce from LOCAL ORGANIC FARMERS whenever possible. In one local growing season we may purchase produce directly from over 30 local organic farmers. Our primary supplier of produce is a grower/worker owned company compiled of over 40 regional growers in Oregon and Washington and is committed to being a leader in sustainable practices.
Curious about how something tastes? Feel free to ask for a sample. Our produce clerks are friendly, knowledgeable, and always willing to share their expertise! Contact our Produce Manager Barry Haynes.
