The Co-op’s Produce Department is focused on local and organic fresh food.  During the local growing season, we source as much as we can from local sustainable farms.  Customers can come to the store and know that the vegetables they’re buying were grown nearby, by community members just like them. We are focused on being a community resource to farmers looking to sell their products and sustain their business, and to shoppers looking for top quality local food.

In the off-season, organic is the name of the game.  While our local farmers slow production in the frozen months, we still stock the finest quality of product available at all times.  When we cannot source locally, we will look to regional and national organic sources.  And, sometimes, we will source organic produce from international sources, but only from countries that have strict fair labor laws and organic certification programs.
